STO withdraws support for Korea MICE Expo

News this week: The Seoul Tourism Organization (STO) and Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) have ended their partnership of the management of the MICE industry trade show, Korea MICE Expo (KME). The latest edition of KME, organised by KTO and supported by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, was held from 26th to 27th June 2013 at the Coex Convention and Exhibition Center in Seoul.

STO withdrew its sponsorship of the KME citing reduced budgets. KTO also revealed that other cities in South Korea are being considered as potential hosts of future editions of the annual trade event. Last year’s KME featured 327 booths from 196 exhibitors and more than 3,800 participants.
