Seoul’s Coex exhibition centre has launched the Good Plan, a sustainable event service brand that debuted at its open house event in August.

Solutions include fully reusable structures like the Coex AV-DROP modular system with aluminium frames and upcycled fabrics; the VOMO Smart modular lightweight exhibition wall system with a honeycomb core made of 100 per cent recycled waste paper; and the OSRAM LED lightbox system featuring efficient LED solutions to illuminate booth displays and walls.

The AV-DROP modular event backdrop system has already gained traction with 160 events served since its introduction two years ago, including the AWS Summit Seoul in May 2023 under Coex’s partnership with Amazon Web Services Korea to put on a sustainable event.

“With initiatives like the Net Zero Carbon Events by 2050 commitment driving major players in the industry, being green and sustainable has been never more essential for our business as a venue operator. Our vision is to lead the way in sustainable event production by investing directly in eco-friendly event systems,” shared Steven Kim, executive director of Coex.

Coex is undergoing significant developments, including the December 2023 launch of The Platz, a 2,224m2 venue. In October 2024, Coex Magok Lewest, Seoul’s largest MICE complex, boasting a 7,452m2 exhibition hall and hotel, will open.

Coex, which is also a professional venue management and exhibition company, will manage and operate Coex Magok Lewest for 10 years.
