Conference Venue – COEX Convention Center

Since opening in March of 1979, COEX has provided a global exchange platform through exhibitions and international conferences and has 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.
