Suwon City, approximately one hour away from South Korea’s capital Seoul, will be hosting the Asia-Pacific MICE Business Festival (APMBF) 2019 prior the opening of its new convention center.

Suwon will host the “APMBF 2019” in conjunction with the opening of the Suwon Convention Center in March next year. The festival will be filled with various programs such as keynote lectures, exhibitions, international sessions, and unique tours. The event will tackle issues on further establishing a cooperative system among members, policy development, and future direction of the industry.

The APMBF is an annual conference organized by the Korea MICE Association. This year, the event was held in Songdo Convensia, Incheon from March 15 – 17. Approximately 2,000 local and international professionals from the meetings and incentive travel industry, association executives, academics, and other related organizations attended the event.

“The Asia-Pacific MICE Business is an international event and we hope that through this event and the opening of the Suwon Convention Center, we are able to promote the beauty of Suwon and attract international conferences and incentive groups to the region in the near future” a city official said.
