DAEJEON

SOUTH KOREA

Why Daejeon?

A hub of traveling

Daejeon, located in the very heart of South Korea, is located within 2~3 hours of any location in the country, including 50 minutes from Seoul, 90 minutes from Busan, and 30 minutes (KTX and BRT) from the Multifunctional Administrative City (Sejong). It is also a transportation hub of the country, passed through by the Gyeongbu, Honam and Daejeon Expressways and the Tongyeong-Dangjin Expressway.

The slow city

A city with no traffic jams, a prosperous city of leisurely walks and communication, a city both stylishly urban and tastefully traditional, a city that gives priority to health and harmony. Meet the leisurely face of Daejeon in the multifunctional culture and arts spaces dotting the city, the eco-parks, hot springs, the Daejeon trail, and the riverside cycling paths.

Imagine a science city

Daejeon is Korea’s largest city of science, hosting Korea’s first special R&D zone, home to some 70 research institutes including universities and government-invested research institutes, more than 800 corporate research centers, and in excess of 1,300 tenant companies. The Expo Regeneration Project and the creation of the International Science Business Belt are expected to create explosive synergies with the city’s proximity to the Multifunctional Administrative City.

Scientific feature

MECCA OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

Daejeon is now a major city for cutting-edge science and technology in Korea. There are 232 research and education institutes including the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), the National Fusion Research Institute (NFRI), the Korea Aerospace Research Institute(KARI), and the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute(KAERI).


Daedeok Innopolis has now become a centre of R&D and a leader of development in Korea’s scientific technology. Functioning under UNESCO, one can also find the headquarters of the World Technopolis Association (WTA) in Daejeon, strengthening the City’s renowned reputation for science and technology.

Convention Venue

Daejeon Convention Center (DCC) is one of Daejeon’s premiere conference centers with a unique, sophisticated architectural design, a beautiful view and modern facilities. DCC, which opened in 2008, consists of a Grandballroom, an Exhibition Hall, a Conference Hall, and 24 meeting rooms designed to accommodate all kinds of meetings and convention activities.


Though it is considered a comparatively latecomer to the MICE industry, Daejeon has rapidly positioned itself as one of the leading cities in this field after the opening of the Daejeon Convention Center. To date, the DCC has been the venue for 80 international meetings in various scales, including the 23rd IAEA Fusion Energy Conference 2010, the 60th International Astronautical Congress (IAC) 2009. With a growing list of successful conferences, DCC is becoming one of the most popular convention centers in Korea.


DIME Exhibition Center (KOTRA Exhibition Center in Daejeon), Expo Park, Daejeon Culture and Arts Center, the Municipal Museum of Fine Arts and Hanbat Arboretum are located nearby the DCC, which provide a platform for experience in the latest science and technology.
