Seoul, South Korea Meeting Planning Overview

Consistently ranked as one of the top international conference destinations in the world, Seoul features harmonious blend of ancient tradition and cutting-edge technology, making it an obvious choice for meeting planners. Seoul is also known as a hub of international business and information technology, as well as the home of several of South Korea's prestigious colleges and universities.

Seoul's appeal is broadened by its accessibility, thanks to its two airports, Gimpo International and Incheon International. As the primary gateway to Seoul, Incheon International is one of the busiest airports in the world and one of Northeast Asia's main travel hubs. Seoul also features a government-run bus system, as well as one of the largest subway systems in the world.

Contributing to its popularity is the city's immense COEX Convention & Exhibition Center, which ranks among the largest convention complexes in Asia. Located within the massive World Trade Center Seoul, COEX boasts a wide range of versatile venues to meet any need, including a grand ballroom, multiple exhibition halls, large conference rooms, and smaller boardrooms. What's more, its location within the World Trade Center makes it extremely convenient for shopping, entertainment, and dozens of restaurants suited for group dining. Perfect for group events and parties, the sophisticated 63 Convention Center features a grand ballroom, as well as smaller rooms perfectly positioned (and with views of the Hangang River) for VIP events.

A city rich in culture, Seoul is home to many museums and performing arts venues, many of which featuring group tour and event rental options. Groups can also unwind at a number of green spaces, including the recreation-rich Hangang Park, or even set sail along the Hangang River.
