The Korea MICE Bureau is offering free flights to Korea plus accommodation along with other prizes as part of an event to promote its newly-upgraded website. Open to all, the online promotion is designed to raise awareness of the KMB, the business events division of the Korea Tourism Organization, as well as the extensive support available for meetings hosted in Korea.
The KMB regularly provides services and support to international events hosted in Korea, such a financial, marketing, site inspection, and communications. Recent major events benefitting from these services include the 2016 Smart Water Grid International Conference, 2016 International Association for Dental Research General Session, and the 2016 Rotary International Seoul Convention.
First launched in 2009, KoreaConvention.org is the nation’s no. 1 online resource for anyone interested in holding meetings, incentives, and other business events in Korea. The redesign provides an enhanced planning experience with updated meeting venues, accommodation database, MICE events calendar, and free downloadable guides. Most notable feature is a new Request for Proposal page, which not only allows submission of event specifications but also enables event planners to track the progress of their application.
“We want the new website to be the ultimate planning tool for all events in Korea,” said Ms. Hee Jin Cho, Head of the Korea MICE Promotion Team. “We aim to make life as easy as possible for organizers, along with showing them that Korea is an accessible, friendly meetings destination,” he added.
To participate, entrants simply need to answer one question about the official KMB website and supply their personal details to be eligible for a prize. A total of 54 winners will be selected as follows:
- 1st Prize: Roundtrip flights to Korea + 5-star Hotel Accommodation 3D/2N (1 winner)
- Samsung Gear 360 (3 winners)
- $20 Amazon Gift Card (50 winners)
- Entries will be accepted from September 1 – November 30, with the winners announced on December 9. For more details, visit the event page here.
The KMB, under the auspices of the Korea Tourism Organization, also aims to establish Korea as a premier destination for tourists, convention delegates, and business travelers. As the government’s leading MICE agency, the KMB has worked for nearly 30 years to provide a wide range of advice and assistance to those considering holding meetings in Korea. It also works closely with organizers, meeting planners, and other regional convention bureaus (Seoul, Incheon, Gyeonggi, Busan, Daegu, Daejeon, Gwangju, Gyeongnam, Gangwon, Gyeongju, and Jeju Island) to ensure that every meeting held in Korea is successful as well as memorable.
