The National Museum of Korea (pictured above) is not only impressive, but can accommodate up to 3000 for a standing reception, as well as an auditorium for 400 for meeting space.
Another iconic Seoul venue is Zaha Hadid’s stonking Dongdemun Design Plaza, or DDP, offers tremendous flexible spaces, for those of you wanting an edgy event venue, over 6,000 sqm of event space are available including a rooftop lawn. Previous events have included the likes of Chanel to Pixar, and Conde Nast (top left)
And on the traditional side Korea House (left) introduces guests to local culture, has a theatre, and several private dining spaces, with traditional royal court cuisine, and they can bring a suitable performance to your own private space. With natural landscaped gardens you would never know you were in the heart of the metropolis.
Some Sevit, also known as Floating Islands (bottom left) offers a stunning and unusual venue in the Han river itself. This vast event space has an auditorium suitable for conferences, gala dinners, car launches, you name it. Suitable for groups of 20 - 550, its 6 banquet spaces are unusual. It also has a roof terrace and from April to October it adds a further, very unique feature, as it is situated next to the Bampo Bridge, with the world’s longest fountain bridge – offering a wonderfully choreographed show that can be seen from Some Sevit, as well as key locations or a river cruise.
