Korea’s Gyeonggi region stronger than ever for MICE

Feature Article

Gyeonggi is increasingly “the” MICE destination for successful business and genuine experiences in Korea.

Gyeonggi Province has diverse tourist attractions and MICE venues optimised for meetings, successfully catering to large-scale international events. 

The world’s only Demilitarised Zone, or DMZ, is a fascinating ecological destination for visitors of all kinds. Meanwhile, Everland, Herb Island, and the west coast, ranking among the world’s top five wetlands, are exceptional venues in the province.

Bleisure tourism is increasingly popular, as visitors are able to check out the latest local fashion trends while shopping, or even visit locations featured in Korea’s popular Hallyu dramas.

Gyeonggi Province, where tradition and modern times meet, is thus a MICE destination full of charm and wonder.

Close to international airports and major venues

Another reason for Gyeonggi Province being an optimal MICE destination is thanks to its proximity to Gimpo and Incheon international airports, easy access to Seoul, and advanced transportation infrastructure.

KINTEX, the largest congress and exhibition venue in Korea, is just 20 minutes from Gimpo Airport and 40 minutes from Incheon International Airport. In addition, Seoul and most of the major cities in Gyeonggi are located within an hour’s drive.

All in all, Gyeonggi is a transportation hub blessed with a wonderful natural environment, meeting the strictest of business needs, especially when travel time management is important. A variety of culture and tour programmes are also available to add to the enjoyment.

Business and technical tours 

Gyeonggi-do has long served as a key role in the development of Korea through its strategic location and vibrant economy. Home to world-leading enterprises such as Samsung, LG, Hyundai, and Kia, the province accounts for one-fifth of the nation’s exports and GDP. Furthermore, as the fastest growing regional economy in Korea, Gyeonggi-do is one of the most sought-after destinations for foreign investment.
