Seoul to Host World Conference on Non-Destructive Testing in 2020

Seoul has won hosting duties for the 2020 World Conference on Non-Destructive Testing (WCNDT), which is expected to bring 1,500 foreign participants from 90 countries. It was chosen by the Korean Committee for Non-Destructive Testing (KCNDT) to be the host city. The bid showcased the many virtues of Seoul as a meetings capital and was completed with the help of the Seoul Convention Bureau bidding clinic.

The International Committee for Non-Destructive Testing declared Korea as the next host country during the organisation’s General Assembly on April 19th. Prior to delivering the bid, the KCNDT worked closely with the Seoul Convention Bureau to develop the best possible presentation. After announcing Seoul as the 2020 host city, the assembly commented that the KCNDT had delivered the best presentation, and lauded it for being well-prepared with an excellent array of publicity and informational material.

“Our bidding clinic is one of the big ways in which we’re able to help congress organisers win international meetings and events for Seoul,” said Jin-Hyeok Park, Senior Director of Seoul Convention Bureau.

“We work closely with them on every aspect of their proposal, from the presentation judges will see on screen to helping them determine which of Seoul’s meetings assets are best emphasized. The city’s high-tech infrastructure is a good example of this, and something that tends to convince many to choose Seoul for their event. Our competitive financial support package, made possible thanks to strong local government support, is also a strong draw.”
