Seoul’s well-equipped convention facilities combined with the support and services of the Seoul Convention Bureau are contributing factors to placing Seoul in the ranks of leading convention cities.
Coex and SETEC, located in the heart of the city, are Seoul’s representative convention centers. The two are part of a convention complex which houses twelve 5-star and 4-star hotels all within a 10-minute distance from the convention centers. A casino, airport terminal, shopping mall, the World Trade Center, and a movie theater are also conveniently nearby to entertain participants during their free time.
36 of Seoul’s 5-star, 4-star, and 3-star hotels serve as convention hotels, acting as venues for international conferences and corporate meetings, and are fully equipped with the required services and facilities.
A waterfront banquet facility on the Hangang; a banquet hall placed in the exoticness of a traditional Korean house; galleries and various cultural spaces embracing modernity; a museum boasting in exhibition, scale and facility; and other exciting outdoor facilities and events add to the uniqueness of Seoul as a convention city.
