It was an opportunity to thank the stakeholders who worked hard for the development of the MICE industry despite facing difficulties from external factors, and also to encourage other members to actively put in efforts for the year 2018.

 

Right after followed a presentation by Jin-hyeok Park, Director of the Seoul Convention Bureau who immediately captured the audience attention through showing a video of the members. Director Park then presented the outcomes of the joint activities undertaken this year by the city of Seoul and the Seoul MICE Alliances, and emphasized that the participation of the members was vital for the success of the city in attracting MICE. He pointed out that Seoul’s success largely depended on the total of 570 participation of SMA members in joint activities in 2017. The joint activities of the past year included taking part in overseas MICE exhibitions, site inspections, joint marketing efforts and advertising campaigns, and joint marketing for bidding. He also presented the activities planned in cooperation with the SMA members for 2018. Another climax of his presentation was where he instantly requested the opinions of the large audience through an online live opinion polling, which results appeared live on the screen as participants were answering questions. Then he provided an overview and guideline of this year’s newly introduced support package brand for MICE events, PLUS Seoul, where he expressed his thanks to the 23 new SMA members who contributed to this package by offering various additional benefits for both meeting planners and participants.

 

Throughout the entire meeting, various festive activities took place with the purpose to make participants easily and comfortably interact with each other and establish tighter relationships. The dresscode of the event was “Ribbon”, which symbolized the “binding” of the members and also “to be reborn”, indicating to cooperate and work hard again on an entire new level for a prosperous future.

 

The SMA Annual Meeting overall created a meaningful opportunity for SMA members to come together to reflect over the past year, enhance relationships, and share plans for a thriving future of the Seoul MICE industry. “Even though this year has been rough for us due to various external challenges, we are eagerly making plans to take over the market again in 2018”.
