The Korea Travel Expo is a gathering of Korean regional tourism organizations, as well as travel aficionados from all over the world. It is held annually in order to help increase the national tourism volume, information exchanges, travel service quality and local economies.

Various tourist service businesses, ranging from hotels and travel agencies to resorts and theme parks, will be on hand to share with visitors valuable information and introduce travel packages, including educational trips.
But that’s not all. Several popular travel writers will also be available to provide travel counseling. Furthermore, visitors to the Korea Travel Expo 2017 can listen to a variety of stories about various tourist attractions and destinations from tour and culture guides at each booth. There will also be an experience zone that will showcase arts and culture that can be found while traveling across Korea.
Of course, no travel expo would be complete without the souvenirs! Visitors can purchase products from various regions that are not easily accessible in Seoul.
The Korea Travel Expo 2017 will be hosted by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism under the supervision of the Korea Tourism Association.
With some 650 booths. this year’s expo is expected to be the largest tourism exposition yet. Participants will include more than 150 local governments and 400 organizations from around the country.
