Seoul’s debut hosting of last week’s International Bar Association (IBA) Annual Conference is the latest example of one of several global organizations utilizing the city’s popular PLUS SEOUL support programs and services for meetings this Fall. The event follows in the footsteps of the International Standards Organization (ISO)’s TC258 Plenary Meeting from Sept. 23-27, while the Computer Vision Foundation (CVF) and IEEE Computer Society will bring ICCV Expo 2019 to Seoul from Oct. 29 – Nov. 1, all using PLUS SEOUL to enhance their activities.
Hosted at Coex, Seoul’s largest meeting facility, the IBA Conference was held in Korea’s capital for the first time since the association’s inception in 1947. Attended by some 5,000 legal professionals from 120 countries, the event also featured a strong local government presence, including Mayor of Seoul Park Won-soon, former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, and a video message from President Moon Jae-in.
Meanwhile, the ISO TC258 Plenary Meeting took place at Seoul Dragon City, a new Accor hotel complex in Seoul’s Yongsan district. The gathering was attended by 60 ISO representatives from 38 countries. Also set to take place at Coex, ICCV 2019 will unite 5,000 individuals in the field of computer vision, including academics, professionals, researchers, and students.
