Attracting and holding a wealth of experience

Daegu is deeply experienced in holding successful international events. Daegu is the first city in the nation to offer a great network system involving municipal government, Daegu Convention Bureau, EXCO, and other companies involved in handling conventions.

Daegu was designated as an international conference city through the establishment of Korea’s first organization exclusively in charge of hosting international conferences. Also, Daegu has years of experience in hosting and holding international conventions and conferences. This gives Daegu an edge when it comes to expertise and professionalism. The “One-Stop Total Convention Service” strategy has led to a host of successful international events held in Daegu. With vast experience hosting events focused on national and international concerns such as the 2013 World Energy Congress (5,000 attendees), 2012 World Entomological Society General Meeting (5000 attendees), the 2011 World Championships in Athletics (7000 attendees), and the 2010 World Firefighters Tournament (5,000 attendees), Daegu definitely lives up to its reputation as being a global city and a top tier convention destination.
