On December 21st, the Alpensia Convention Center in Gangwon Province held a proclamation ceremony of the 2017–2018 Visit Gangwon Year to wish for the success of the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Winter Games.
Before the proclamation started, the University Students’ National Smile Team welcomed the event attendees with promotional materials for the 2017–2018 Visit Gangwon Year, the 2016–2018 Visit Korea Year, and the K-Smile Campaign.

In particular, the Visit Korea Committee received an appreciation plaque for its contribution to the successful hosting of the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games and the development of tourism in Gangwon through the 2016–2018 Visit Korea Year and K-Smile Campaign. (Applause)
