Has anyone run an event in Seoul, South Korea?!

Hi everyone,

We are working with a client who wants to run a series of hackathon events in London, Paris and Seoul. Having never run an event in South Korea myself, I said we would look into the feasibility of it and that’s where I thought of the fantastic EventTribe community.

I would really welcome any thoughts/experiences/ideas from anyone who knows Seoul or has contacts there.

The event itself will be attended by around 40 people and last 3 days. In London we usually book a combination of event space/meeting rooms at a co-working space and group accommodation at a nearby hotel. So my starting point for now is to start looking at equivalent options in Seoul.

Thanks in advance for your help,

All the best,

Hey there mate. Did you find what you were looking for?
Some friends of mine did a 10k person event there, and I’m sure they would have had a fixer as well as needed board rooms and meeting rooms for press meetings. If you’re still looking into this let me know and I’ll ask them.

Hi Malcolm,

Many thanks for your message, really appreciate your input - this event brief is on hold until the new year so, provided we do get the go ahead at a later date, I may well get back in touch with you if that’s ok?

Sorry for the slow reply it’s been a while since I logged on to EventTribe!



All good! :slight_smile:
