Visit Korea Committee Activities

Beijing, China hosted the 4-day Winter & Ski Korea Festa from October 25th to 28th. The Chinese market is one of the most important markets for the Korean inbound tourism industry and a main target of the Korea Grand Sale project by the Visit Korea Committee. It was the chance for the Visit Korea Committee to promote its own projects like the Korea Grand Sale and Korea Tour Card to more than 100 representatives of the Chinese tourism industry who are in charge of designing the packages. Everyone was so attentive, visiting the committee’s booth after the presentation in person; thus suggesting the great interest in the projects of the committee. The attendees also got to share information such as the current status of the Chinese tourism industry and Korean tourism packages at the pre-arranged B2B consultations with the Chinese local tourism agencies. Can you see the staff of the Visit Korea Committee working on the promotion of the projects in the picture? The 2-day B2B event was joined by K-Pop star “Gary” of Leessang. Gary is known to be hugely popular in China, but it was amazing to see him welcomed by so many people at the site! It is the picture of the grand opening ceremony featuring Gary. Right next to the stage is the booth of the Visit Korea Committee where the Korea Grand Sale and Korea Tour Card were promoted to potential Chinese visitors to Korea, with the Twice-a-Day Roulette and Weibo Follow undeniably the hottest events at the booth. The Visit Korea Committee is working hard to attract as many Chinese tourists to Korea as possible! Please keep monitoring us!

September is the month of fruition. Heads of local governments gathered in the middle of September to discuss the Korea Tour Card system. This conference covered the performance of the “Korea Tour Card,” which has been used by more than 470,000 foreign tourists since its introduction in 2017, with the attendees discussing how to promote collaboration to facilitate regional tourism. Check out the photographs from the conference held at Ferrum Tower in Jongno, Seoul. Welcome remarks by Secretary General Gyeong-ah Han of the Visit Korea Committee. Introduction of “Korea Tour Card,” the exclusive transit card system for foreign tourists. It is basically the T-Money transit card but also offers benefits such as discounts and freebie at attractions, cultural hands-on events, shopping, and show/performances so that the owners can have maximum fun while traveling Korea with the card. What's more, they can use the card in future visits to Korea for accessing public transportation nationwide! We also had a “Korea Grand Sale” session, targeting foreigners visiting Korea in January and February of the following year. Korea Grand Sale covers all processes for foreigners visiting Korea, from booking of an airline ticket, accommodations, and shopping to on-site experiences like cultural hands-on events, including some benefits of the Korea Tour Card. The conference was successfully closed with photo-taking with the representatives of local governments. The Korea Tour Card will eventually become a must-have for foreign tourists by expanding partners to offer benefits to them. Of course, the Visit Korea Committee will be there, too!
