Share Article

Annual event brings together companies from all across the world, offering opportunities for one-on-one meetings and international business development.

Buy Korea Summit 2012, the premier international business development conference and expo, will offer a full day of exciting networking opportunities and one-on-one meetings with leading companies from the U.S., South Korea, and other countries.

The entire event, which is free to attend and takes place on February 14, 2012 at KINTEX Convention Center in Seoul Metro Area, South Korea , will be completely devoted to fostering partnership opportunities between international and South Korean companies. Hosting Buy Korea Summit 2012 will be KOTRA, the South Korean government agency that promotes trade and investment across the globe.

“We are very excited for the great partnership opportunities that will be available at Buy Korea Summit 2012, which is the largest annual event held by KOTRA” says Sungpil Um, President of KOTRA North America Head Office. “Last year, more than 1,000 companies participated, creating many partnerships and exciting business opportunities between U.S., international, and Korean companies. This year, we expect an even bigger, more successful event!”

Over 2,500 South Korean companies so far are willing to meet with potential international partners. This includes leaders from a range of industries, such as, automotive, textile, machinery, medical devices, consumer electronics, semiconductors, telecommunications, aerospace & defense, and more. The opportunities for networking and partnership are plentiful. Pre-arranged meetings can be setup for attendees upon their request along with recommendations from the conference’s industry specialists.

With the effectuation of Korea-U.S. FTA early next year, the border tariff burden will be largely relieved for international business. This is the best timing to explore the Korean market. Buy Korea Summit 2012 takes advantage of the timing to boost mutual development for Korea and the world.

Admission to this event is free, but space is limited. This event only takes place once a year, so those interested in going are encouraged to register now so they don’t miss out on these exciting business development opportunities. Hotel accommodations and airfare can be supported by KOTRA to companies that meet the qualifications.
