The luncheon was carried out to actively bring new MICE events to Seoul to help diversify the market. 120 Asia-Pacific MICE buyers were participated in the event. Moreover, on top of the networking session with the buyers, there was an introductory session on the Seoul MICE support programs, Seoul MICE Alliance members, and the Seoul MICE promotion materials. The participants were served Western food with Bulgogi and also enjoyed a special ‘K-pop dance’ performance to experience the flavor and charm of Korea.
Meanwhile, Seoul Metropolitan Government and Seoul Tourism Organization co-operated the Korea promotion booth with Korea Tourism Organization, other regional bureaus, convention centers, and travel agencies from September 26th to the 28th. It was held to actively attract more MICE events to Seoul by promoting Seoul to Asia-Pacific buyers and other participants.

Seoul was enthusiastically promoted during this event through 39 business consultations.
