The Union of International Associations (UIA) takes its annual Round Table Asia-Pacific to virtual this year in partnership with Seoul Tourism Organization. The UIA Round Table Asia-Pacific is the first virtual Round Table where the delegates invited can listen to keynote speeches and panel discussions on various issues and participate in discussions, networking and team building activities at the virtual map and venues representing Seoul. The N Seoul Tower, Changdeokgung Palace, Seoul Botanic Garden, Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP), and Floating Island Convention were selected to proudly show the charms of Seoul to the delegates. Programs are organized in a way to take on a resemblance to on-site Round Table and include all from the agenda. Keynote speeches, Database Training session, Workshop Discussion after the Presentations on various topics, and Panel Discussions are on the list for delegates to listen and participate. Considering Round table discussions be more enriched with much engagement from the attendees, the discussions are to be in real-time communications live on a virtual platform which will also be applied for the casual conversations at the virtual lounge area.


Seoul prepared virtual tour videos introducing what made the city a top-class MICE destination. Attendees can choose and watch these 360˚ VR videos that are arranged in arrays of different themes and available at a virtual Theater. Mini-games and surprising prizes are also available to promote interactions within the attendees and entertaining them at the same time. The delegates who like to find out more about Seoul can visit the virtual Seoul booth for a live chat with STO staff or download the information brochure on PLUS SEOUL support program.


“It seemed adventurous to host a Round Table virtually at first. However, as more things are fitting into the right place, it started to portray a successful event that will show the value of the PLUS SEOUL to the attendees. I hope the attendee will have opportunities to visit us in Seoul one day and see the real city for themselves as well,” Jihyun Kim, a director of MICE Planning team at Seoul Tourism Organization mentioned. She also added that one of the main goals of this Round Table is to provide a place where attendees can freely meet, greet and mingle like they would do on-site.
