The Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) hosted an event at the Korean Cultural Centre (KCC) in Sydney last week to raise awareness of travel to Korea. The event, held on 5 November, was set against the exhibition Light Shadow: Koo Bohnchang, a photographic exhibition of Korean ceramics
A panel discussion focused on on specific areas of Korea – its culture and cuisine, as well as travel information – and guests were treated to an arrangement of Korean food, including its famous fried chicken.
Panellists included KTO Sydney Director Insook Lee, KCC Director Sojeong Park, SBS and ABC Asian Pop Presenter Andy Trieu and Korean Chef Heather Jeong. The panel MC was Sarah Stevenson of Julie King & Associates.
The Consul General of the Republic of Korea in Sydney, Mr Sangwoo Hong, opened the event and welcomed guests. Mr Hong highlighted discussions around the South Korean Travel Bubble and noted that 2021 was the 60th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Australia and South Korea.
Julie King & Associates has been appointed by the organisation to expand its awareness in Australia and New Zealand.
