Korea boosts support for international conventions

The Korea MICE Bureau has released an updated COVID-19 support programme for international conventions to provide extra assistance to groups affected by the pandemic.

The new support programme allows for more conventions to receive support with relaxed eligibility criteria, and introduces adjustments which take hybrid and online events into account.

Under the new eligibility criteria, all conventions must have a minimum of 100 total attendees with at least 50 foreign attendees, and the event must last one day or longer. Further, online, offline and hybrid meetings all qualify for support, and the total attendee count will include both online and offline attendees.
