From Our CEO

To be a leader in the Green MICE industry and in
Multi-complex center management

Welcome to Coex

It is my great pleasure to say that since our establishment we have managed to grow from solely being an exhibition center into this remarkable convention and exhibition complex that takes the quality of destinations to a new level. From helping the Korean industry to grow and prosper we have gone to creating something like a convention city where all needs of our clients and visitors can be met under one roof. The Coex name is a strongly recognized brand in Korea and we plan to take it abroad.
The current economic situation might throw hurdles into our way but by no means blockades. We are ready to take on challenges and to use them to our advantage. Korea experienced rapid growth in the last decade which slowed down in 2009. Now it is time to work on quality growth and to take this chance to move ahead of our competitors.
With our focus on creativity and expansion, we are eager to internationalize our exhibitions and to attract increasing numbers of international congresses. With Coex, we present an attractive destination that distinguishes itself by far from others; not only in terms of all the additional facilities and services that we provide but also in terms of cultural assets such as our musical theater, the CoexArtium, Art Hall and the surrounding sights.
We plan to build upon our experience in managing a multi-complex facility by constantly searching for innovative business ideas for our center and by turning the Coex Complex into a green, high quality venue.
At Coex we believe that quality goes hand in hand with green practices and sustainable growth. This thought led us to the initiation of our Green Campaign which brought many positive changes into our center and which is one stepping stone towards accomplishing our goal of becoming a leader in the green MICE industry.
