In this special sponsored episode of GatherGeeks, BizBash Chairman and Founder David Adler once again teams up with Stephanie Cheung, Director of Strategy and Insights at Marketing Challenges International, to explore Korea from a business events perspective. First, Oscar Nobre, Senior Project Manager at McVeigh Global Meetings and Events, shares why he chose to host a 700-person conference in Korea and what he learned in the sourcing process with Juri Seo, Manager of Meetings and Incentives at Korea Tourism Organization. The two discuss everything from contract negotiations to local traditions to appropriate speaker gifts. Then, representatives from three different cities around the country—Goyang, Jeju, and Busan—highlight the culture, people, and customs that international event professionals need to know. All the fun and informative trivia kicks off an upcoming virtual trivia night in December 2020!
