The Seoul Comprehensive MICE Industry Support Center will open as the first of its kind by a local government in order to strengthen the competitiveness of MICE businesses in Seoul and to establish a stable environment for their management. Launched by the city of Seoul and Seoul Tourism Organization, the Seoul Comprehensive MICE Industry Support Center will offer comprehensive consultation in the field of MICE (meetings, incentives, conventions, and exhibitions).
As a leading player in the MICE market, Seoul was ranked third as the city hosting international conferences for three consecutive years. Seoul is aiming to become the world’s top nation in the field of MICE.
In order to create an atmosphere that fits the status of the MICE industry of Seoul, the city is establishing the Seoul Comprehensive MICE Industry Support Center to provide professional consultation services regarding major management issues. Beneficiaries will be small- and medium-sized MICE businesses (with sales under KRW 1 billion), which occupy 85 percent of the whole industry. Such businesses will receive advice from experts on total management issues, such as law, accounting, tax affairs, human resource affairs, and labor.
From application all the way through the completion of the consultation, every step will be conducted as a one-stop shop. The call center at the Seoul Comprehensive MICE Industry Support Center on the 8th floor of the Seoul Tourism Organization will analyze the applications of consultation requests from different companies to match them with appropriate experts of each domain. The difficulties the companies face will be tackled aggressively by comprehensive consultation, including the advisory session at the center and a visit to the company by a consultant.
The consultation for different fields are provided on different days (Monday: labor, Wednesday: taxation, Friday: law) and the consultant in each field stays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the center.
