South Korea’s tallest building, the new 555 meter-tall Lotte World Tower (pictured above), is set to fully open on 3 April in Seoul. Besides housing an enormous mall, aquarium, a cinema with one of the world's largest movie screens, concert hall, and observation deck, the new tower will also be home to the luxurious Signiel Hotel by Lotte Hotel. Offering 235 bedrooms, meeting facilities and more, this will be luxury personified.
Set in Seoul’s fashion-conscious, upmarket Gangnam district—home to local and global luxury brands and the city’s vast Olympic Park—Glad Live’s mission is to serve as an urban playground for cosmopolitan revelers.
In Korea’s second city, the Bangkok-based Minor Hotels will enter South Korea’s Busan in 2019 with the opening of a 400-room AVANI Busan. It will be situated in the East Busan Tourism Complex, also ideal for shopping and entertainment, yet equally accessible for the other meeting hotels and convention facilities of BEXCO. The new upscale hotel will offer event space and meeting rooms, a rooftop specialty bar, and swimming pool.
Lotte is also expanding here with a deluxe hotel, within Busan Lotte Town Tower, scheduled to open around the same time as AVANI in 2019, and located within the same cluster.
Gimhae International Airport is conveniently located twenty five kilometres away, and Seoul is just 2.5 hours on the high speed KTX. Busan goes beyond sun, sea and sand, and is equally famous for the arts with the Busan International Film Festival & International Fireworks Festival as it is for its lead in tech and marine and related events. Couple these new luxury properties with the recently opened Park Hyatt and its Diamond Bridge views, temples within walking distance, the famous Jagalchi Fish Market, and sundowner yacht trips, Busan is set to offer both Meetings and Incentive participants a unique take on the ‘Cannes of Asia’.
