Strategically located on the Korean peninsula with land, sea and air access to potential worldwide markets, KINTEX is positioned to become the leading exhibition facility in northeast Asia. Already the largest international exhibition center in Korea, KINTEX is committed to attracting competitive exhibitions to strengthen Korea’s trade base and enhance the country’s export competitiveness.
Completed in 2005, the first phase of a planned, four-phase complex is a 1.5 million sf facility with a 592,000 sf pillar-free, open floor exhibition hall that is divisible into five smaller halls; 22 small- to medium-size meeting rooms, which may be combined or divided to provide breakout accommodations for exhibitions or independent conference venues; an oval, divisible grand ballroom that can seat up to 2,000; a VIP meeting room equipped for telecommunications and simultaneous interpretation in eight languages; outdoor exhibition space; food service and catering facilities; and other business amenities that support the convention center’s reputation as an international business plaza. Primarily targeted to large, heavy industry shows, the exhibition hall has a floor load of five tons per sq meter for displays of heavy items and oversized equipment such as airplanes and large machinery.
