In 2020, with the unexpected outbreak and spread of the COVID-19 virus, the global MICE industry completely froze.

Busan is an international convention city that is receiving attention worldwide. According to an announcement made in 2018 by the Union of International Associations (UIA), Busan ranks 4th in Asia and 12th in the world as an international convention city.
