The capital of South Korea recently opened the Seoul Tourism Plaza, which is to serve as a new hub and meeting point for stakeholders in the tourism sector.
Thie one-stop plaza was built around four key points â€“ communication, governance, incubating and innovation â€“ with the aim of establishing a robust ecosystem for the local tourism industry.
On the first floor will be a tourism information centre and a souvenir shop, and there will be broadcasting studios, as well as numerous meeting rooms and lounges dotted throughout the building. These spaces will be open for classes and workshops to exchange information and knowledge.
The Seoul Tourism Organization will also be located in this building, while another two plaza floors will be dedicated to startups and professionals working on various tourism projects. Another government agency that will call Seoul Tourism Plaza home is the Seoul Tourism and MICE Center, which will offer professional consulting and counselling services for MICE stakeholders.
