MICE Seoul



Seoul, the World’s Best MICE City

’Global Traveler’ selects Seoul as ‘Best MICE City’

2018 marks the 4th consecutive year that Seoul has won this award

Seoul gets high marks for convenient infrastructure, culture, and hospitality


For the fourth year in a row - from 2015 until 2018 - Seoul has been named the Best MICE City in the Global Traveler Awards, as voted by Global Traveler magazine readers. As a result of this award from the 15th edition of the survey awards run by the U.S.-based magazine, Seoul has been recognized as a world-class international meetings city and the best MICE city in the world.

Global Traveler is a prestigious business travel magazine in the United States that provides information about airlines, hotels, cities, lifestyle, and more for worldwide business travelers and professionals in related industries.

Seoul has once again solidified its global position by nabbing its fourth consecutive title as “Best MICE City”. Not only is Seoul an ideal destination for multinational corporations and business travelers for its outstanding IT environment, convenient public transit, diverse accommodations, and MICE infrastructure, it is also considered to be an attractive location where tradition co-exists with the latest trends in technology and people deliver excellent hospitality.

After the Global Traveler Awards chose Seoul as the Best MICE City in 2013, the award went to Singapore the following year. Since then, however, the award has been given to Seoul for four consecutive years, cementing Seoul’s status as a world-class MICE destination.

Global Traveler: 50% of the magazine’s subscribers are CEOs and business owners. The subscribers go on an average of nine flights a year, with 93% riding in first or business class. More than 55% stay in 4-5 star hotels, and they stay for an average of 60 nights at a hotel per year. Global Traveler surveys their subscribers for the Global Traveler Awards and announces the winning companies and cities every year.
