KINTEX (Korea International Exhibition Center) is Korea’s largest and newest international exhibition and convention venue as well as a joint investment among KOTRA, Gyeonggi provincial government and Goyang city, which was purpose-built to resolve the issues of event space shortage in Korea and to internationalize Korea’s exhibition industry.
The role of KINTEX is to serve as a trade marketing business venue for both leading local and overseas companies by attracting and developing world-class trade shows and conventions through its global and domestic marketing activities.
KINTEX’s new challenge to the world
By opening the second venue in 2011, KINTEX has grown into Asia’s leading exhibition and convention center boasting 108,556m2 in exhibition area. Korea’s top-tier exhibitions, including the Seoul International Manufacturing Technology Show and the International Food Industry Exhibition, have become part of the success story of KINTEX. And by leading the co-location of similar exhibitions, KINTEX also plays a vital role in up-sizing Korea’s exhibition industry.
Together with large halls that can accommodate 100,000 people at a time, KINTEX has been the venue of the Herbalife Extravaganza, Yuna Kim’s Gala show and many other global events, firmly underscoring its position as a strong competitor in the international events market.
Last year, KINTEX made a splendid achievement of attracting GASTECH 2014, one of the world’s three major international gas exhibitions and conventions. And KINTEX also attracted the 2016 Rotary Seoul International convention where a total of 56,000 visitors (including 29,000 foreign visitors) will be expected. Moving confidently into 2014, KINTEX is competing against global top exhibition and convention centers all over the world beyond Korea and the Asia region.
The best facility for any type of events
KINTEX has indoor exhibition space 15 times bigger than a football stadium, which is equivalent to around 41% of the total indoor exhibition space of all 12 exhibition centers in Korea. Pillar-less exhibition areas can be conveniently divided or integrated. Featuring a durable floor that withstands five tons of floorload, a 15m high ceiling and outdoor exhibition spaces, KINTEX is suitable for all kinds of events.
A variety of conference rooms provides the best environment for meetings. The second venue of KINTEX is designed to lead visitors to look around the entire hall on the second floor while opening the exit to the first floor also featuring an optimum environment for multi-purpose events.
Beyond an exhibition and convention space
KINTEX is positioning itself as a multipurpose complex. Situated in an ideal location that can be reached within 30 minutes from Incheon International Airport and downtown Seoul, KINTEX complex accommodates all types of commercial facilities including department stores, shopping malls for visitors.
KINTEX is to become not only as the venue of the exhibition and convention industry but also a world-renowned arena of culture, entertainment and BTMICE that will provide enormous exciting entertainment contents to visitors. KINTEX will keep striving to make the venue a place that everybody takes pride in and the world pays close attention to.
