With the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, just a year away, this highlights the winter activities the destination offers. The Korea MICE Bureau is on hand to assist event professionals with details about the logistic and event facilities. A regular newsletter on the games will keep you updated in the lead up with all the developments .
The world’s media will be looking at South Korea, and whilst the games area only covers a relatively small part of the country to the North East, there will be plenty of sights and sounds from across the Peninsular as it's impossible to avoid vibrant Seoul, and beyond, the delightful folk villages, palaces, temples and hanok (traditional Korean houses) that run the length of the country, including New 7 wonder of the World, Jeju island, with sub tropical climes and its sublime volcanic landscape.
The KTX high speed bullet train will offer access to the games from Seoul within 70 minutes, and already catapults visitors from Incheon international Airport, via Seoul to the South East and South West of the country in under 3 hours direct to the coast. South Korea has much to offer outside the capital, both in terms of delightful and unique experiences for top achievers, and a plethora of high tech, modern convention facilities and hotels.
The healthy, tasty Korean cuisine, with its signature Kimchi and Bibimbap, Korean BBQs and sizzling chicken and beer parties, to the more refined Michelin starred restaurants will delight visitors looking for a taste of the destination, even Buddhist Temple Food gets a star in Seoul, and it won’t break your budget.
The Korea MICE Bureau can help you gen up on what South Korea has to offer for meetings and incentives, ahead of that request from your boss, client and teams.
