Korea breaks new ground with largest Indonesian incentive
Korea Tourism Organisation to host over 1,100 incentive qualifiers from networking marketing company followed by 860-strong delegation from Singapore

7 Feb 2017

Korea is proving its appeal as a winter incentive getaway by welcoming the country’s largest Indonesian delegation to date and a further 860 incentive qualifiers from a Singaporean health company this month. 

Some 1,154 delegates from Millionaire Club Indonesia – the largest incentive group to visit Korea, according to Korea Tourism Organisation (KTO) – are travelling in eight separate groups over the course of this month. The first group arrived on February 2.  

A further 860 employees from Extra Excellence, a Singapore-based herbal supplement company, will also visit Korea later this month. 

KTO has organised activities from skiing in venues for the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games, to cheese-making in Pyeongchang Uiyaji Wind Village, and strawberry-picking in Gyeonggi, Incheon.

KTO executive director Kapsoo Kim says: “We are thrilled to welcome incentive groups to Korea’s representative winter destination, Gangwon-do province, showcasing to them our state-of-the-art winter sports facilities, dreamy landscapes blanketed with snow, and of course, offering adrenaline-rush experiences that we hope will spark excitement for them to return to Korea for next year’s 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics”.

Winter Games prospects spur Korea business events

In a move to attract business events groups, the tourism organisation has been providing complimentary services, including souvenirs and free admission to attractions, to small groups of at least 10 delegates.
