SEOUL — The South Korean capital city will host the 8th Union of
International Associations (UIA) Round Table in Asia Pacific as a
virtual event on 17-18 September.
Hosted by the Seoul Tourism Organization (STO), in close partnership
with several industry stakeholders, the event will see keynote
presentations, panel discussions and networking activities take place at
different virtual venues representing Seoul. The N Seoul Tower,
Changdeokgung Palace, Seoul Botanic Garden, Dongdaemun Design Plaza
(DDP), and Floating Island Convention were selected to proudly show the
charms of Seoul to delegates on the virtual map.
All presentations, training workshops and panel discussions will be
broadcast live. Attendees can also take 360˚virtual tours through the
city, with mini-games and incentives embedded throughout the tours.
“It seemed adventurous to host a Round Table virtually at first.
However, as more things are fitting into the right place, it started to
portray a successful event that will show the value of the city to the
attendees," said Jihyun Kim, a director of MICE Planning team at STO. "I
hope the attendee will have opportunities to visit us in Seoul one day
and take advantage of the PLUS SEOUL support programme.”
