Virtual Seoul to host a Round Table for Association Delegates

Seoul Convention Bureau (SCB) takes the annual Union of International Associations (UIA) Round Table in Asia-Pacific region to virtual on 17-18 September this year in close partnership with companies in Seoul MICE industry. The UIA Round Table Asia-Pacific is the first virtual Round Table where the invited delegates listen to keynote speeches and panel discussions, participate in discussions on various issues, join the networking activities 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 the delegates on the virtual map.

Programs are organized in a way to take on a resemblance to on-site Round Table and include all from the agenda. Keynote speeches, Database Training session, Presentations and Workshop Discussion on various topics, and Panel Discussions are on the program list for delegates to listen and participate. Considering the character of Round table discussions that they are more enriched with much engagement from the attendees, the discussions are to be in real-time communications live on a virtual platform and this will also be applied for the casual conversations at the virtual lounge area.

Seoul will present virtual tour videos introducing what made the city a top-class MICE destination. Attendees can choose and watch these 360˚ VR videos that are arranged in arrays of different themes and available at a virtual Theater. Mini-games and surprising prizes are available to promote interactions within the attendees and entertain them at the same time. The delegate who likes to find out more about Seoul can visit the virtual Seoul booth for a live chat with SCB staff or download the information brochure on PLUS SEOUL support program.

“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. I hope the attendee will have opportunities to visit us in Seoul one day and take advantage of the PLUS SEOUL support program and of course, see the beautiful city for themselves as well,” Jihyun Kim, a director of MICE Planning team at Seoul Tourism Organization mentioned. She also added that one of the main goals of this Round Table is to provide a place where attendees can freely meet, greet and mingle like they would do on-site.
