A Global Leader of the MICE industry.
Since our opening in March of 1979, we have provided a global exchange platform through exhibitions and international conferences and have become the MICE business hub of Asia and the greatest exhibition venue and tourist attraction with a range of infrastructures for global business.
The Coex Center is comprised of four stories above ground with a total of 36,007㎡ of exhibition space and a floor area of 460,000㎡. Four specialized exhibition halls can be partitioned into a total of 12 separate rooms, and include a convention hall with space for up to 7,000 people. The Coex Center also boasts 54 meeting rooms and office space equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and a cutting edge building management system.
Coex has evolved into a leading culture-business platform, propelled by the opening of the new Coex Mall in 2014 and SM Town in 2015, and the designation of Gangnam as a ‘Special Tourist Zone’ dedicated to the MICE industry.
The COEX aims to nurture the trade center, Gangnam MICE Special Tourist Zone, as a center of MICE business in Asia and contribute to developing the domestic service industry. It has become the best landmark in terms of economy, trade, culture and tourism in Asia through strengthening global competitiveness in the MICE industry by changing the focus from exhibition and convention-oriented operation to the establishment of the MICE cluster with industry, culture (including the Korean wave, shopping), and performance, in harmony with each other.
We are leading the Korean MICE industry by holding more than 200 exhibitions and 2,500 international meetings and events a year; we successfully held the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) in 2000, World Cup Media Center in 2002, the G20 Summit in 2010, Nuclear Security Summit in 2012, UFI Congress in 2013, and the Meeting of the Conference the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity in 2014, etc.
We not only have world-class hardware but also the best MICE experts in Korea who have various levels of experience and know-how. We are the biggest exhibition and convention promoter in Korea that is certified by The Global Association of the Exhibition Industry (UFI) and Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy.
