Big Korea Presence at IMEX Ahead of Mega Int’l Events across the Nation

[Korea: March 29] Korea’s return to IMEX Frankfurt this year precedes several prominent international congresses taking place over the next few months; most notably May’s 2016 Rotary International Convention. The high-profile event is one of many benefiting from various services and support provided by the Korea MICE Bureau (KMB), which IMEX visitors will be able to discover in more detail at the expo, scheduled for April 19-21.


50,000 participants to gather in Gyeonggi for 2016 Rotary International Convention

Set to take place from May 28 – June 1 at KINTEX, Gyeonggi Province, the 2016 Rotary International Convention is expected to draw 50,000 participants, of which 25,000 will be from overseas. KMB support for the convention will include on-site cultural experience booths to help attendees comfortably experience local traditions, event welcome signs at Incheon International Airport, and other assistance.


Large-scale Conventions to Take Place throughout Korea Peninsula this Spring

In April and May, Korea will host two other major events likewise receiving KMB support. The first of these, the 21st Cardiovascular Summit (TCTAP 2016) conference, is scheduled for April 26-29 at Coex, Seoul, and will be attended by 3,600 participants, of which 1,200 will hail from overseas. This will be followed by the 13th International Congress of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery at ICC Jeju from May 18-20. As with the Rotary International Convention, the above events will also be enhanced by complimentary culture booths and airport signage.
