Daegu Releases Proof Of Legacy Study

18th March 2022

Legacy after a conference is an organic concept that grows over the years. The Daegu Metropolitan City and Daegu Convention & Visitors Bureau have released a report on legacies from five business events, under the title “Business Events Legacy in Daegu, Korea”. The study starts from the International Solar Cities Congress 2004 (ISCC 2004), which placed the city on the map of renewable energies and shows the strides it has made since then.

Gary Grimmer, Executive Chair of GainingEdge, who had reviewed the research on the sidelines remarked: “Our research has shown that event legacies operate at different levels. Some are more focused on advancing a professional community or industry sector. Some are world-changing. The legacies of ISCC 2004 are actually world-changing because they are supporting UN energy and climate policies. Daegu is now a role model city for integrating renewable energy and energy efficient technologies and industries into environmental, economic and city planning.” 

Charlie Bae, CEO of the Daegu Convention & Visitors Bureau (Daegu CVB) said: “Business events have shaped Daegu’s industry and economy, elevated our city’s brand globally, and paved the way for innovation and progress in our region. Our ISCC 2024 case study provides support for the validation and design of our vision and legacy goals. Moving forward, we will expand our research, culminating in a quantitative index for legacy assessment.”
