Coex Convention & Exhibition CenterCoex, Exhibition Organizer
Coex Convention & Exhibition Center is Korea’s top destination for exhibitions, seminars, and international conferences. Located in the heart of Seoul’s business district, Coex has hosted many of Seoul’s biggest events, including the ASEM Summit, FIFA World Cup Media Center, World Civic Forum, and G20 Summit.



Coex is home to Seoul’s only City Air Terminal, where passengers can pick up tickets, check bags, and ride express limousine buses every ten minutes to Incheon International Airport. Coex also connects to two subway lines and over 20 bus lines.



The center is made up of four exhibition halls with 36,000 square meters of prime floor space. There are 48 conference rooms with capacities ranging from 12 to 1,000+ attendees. Any event, from a small exhibition seminar to a major international convention, can be held at Coex.



Coex Mall on the basement level is Asia’s largest underground mall. Combined with the on-site Hyundai Department Store, Coex houses over 1,000 stores and restaurants in total, as well as a 16-screen cinema, a museum, an aquarium, and more. Two dedicated theaters also host daily stage performances at Coex.



Coex has three hotels on-site and 7,500 rooms within a 5-km radius. Event attendees from abroad will have no trouble finding rooms of their desired level and rate.



Water recycling, advanced energy management systems, extensive waste reduction programs, LED lighting, and alternative energy test beds have earned Coex top sustainability accolades from around the globe. Coex is EarthCheck Silver Certified and consults regularly on energy management.



Coex was Korea’s first center, and remains its best and its busiest. We have three decades of experience in planning and hosting events of every size and type, and are among the world’s top convention centers in event volume.
