If Incheon were to be summed up in just two words, they would be “openness” and “diversity”. Incheon offers the best location for meetings, incentive trips, conventions, and exhibitions (MICE). You have more options to choose from when you search for destinations and venues in Incheon. Especially Songdo ConvensiA, an up and coming convention center in Korea, is only a twenty minute drive from the Incheon International Airport, providing convenience and accessibility for visitors. The center is surrounded by many hotels including a traditional Korean house-style hotel and various attractions like Central Park, the Northeast Asia Tower (68 stories), G-Tower, and the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club. Also this follows the successful invitations to groups such as the UN GCF(Green Climate Fund) Secretariat, World Bank Korea Office and A-WEB(Association of World Election Bodies) branches. We have many kinds of prime venues for creating new opportunities in the MICE industry. We are all ready to support one-stop services for MICE visitors. As the representative organization of the Incheon Metropolitan City, the Incheon Convetion Bureau (ICVB) takes exclusive responsibility for the city’s marketing efforts, such as promoting the slogan “Incheon, the City for International Conferences” in an attempt to attract various international conferences. Incheon, the perfect city for your business or pleasure, always welcomes you.
