Visit Korea Committee Attends Korea Travel Expo 2017
The Visit Korea Committee attended the Korea Travel Expo 2017, which was held at Halls C and D1 of COEX from February 16 to 19.
The Korea Travel Expo, an annual event launched in 2004, contributes to local economic development by providing travel information and attracting more tourists to travel across Korea. This year, the travel fair was attended by more than 100,000 visitors.
The Tourist Service Center, run by the Visit Korea Committee, promoted the Pledge of Kindness, the Visit Korea Year, and the Korea Grand Sale to locals.
The Korea Travel Expo kicked off with the opening ceremony.
Many visitors joined in the long queue in front of the Tourist Service Center.
Promotional materials on the Visit Korea Year, the Korea Grand Sale, and the K-Smile Campaign were distributed in front of the Tourist Service Center.
The visitors participated by taking a Pledge of Kindness.
Many foreign tourists who attended the event showed great interest in the projects and activities of the Visit Korea Committee.
Tuho, a traditional game of throwing arrows into a pot, was very popular among those traveling with family.
Many visitors left messages in the guestbook.
The Korea Travel Expo was a valuable opportunity for the Visit Korea Community to promote its activities, including the 2016–2018 Visit Korea Year, to locals and tourists.
The Visit Korea Committee will continue to attend various travel fairs at home and abroad to promote the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games and the 2016–2018 Visit Korea Year.
