North Asia Meeting & Event Planning City Guide

North Asia meeting and event planning programs frequently center around business, as China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan are tremendous economic drivers on a global scale. However, iconic structures like the Great Wall of China and Beijing’s Forbidden City; untamed wildernesses like the steppes of Mongolia; and the nightlife of Tokyo and Seoul also drive incentive interest when planning meetings and events in Northeast Asia.
