From July to December, Seoul’s event venue COEX has about 8 international exhibitions and conventions listed on the event calendar. Other convention centers in Seoul such as SETEC, aT Center or Sejong University Conference Center also started holding events under strict quarantine measures. Seoul cautiously resumed on-site MICE events starting with exhibition and congress in June. The Korea Landscape and Garden Expo 2020 held from June 3 to 6 was the first exhibition in 3 months since the industry was put on a halt followed by Seoul International Dental Exhibition and Scientific Congress 2020 (SIDEX 2020). SIDEX 2020 was the first large-scaled event which had 4,860 attendees in two days from June 6 to 7.

The Central Disease Control Headquarters and the Central Disaster management Headquarters released Disinfection Guidelines to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19 at Public and Multi-purpose Facilities on April 2, 2020 and convention centers have developed their own procedures and measures in supporting the document. In a first step, every attendee is to be registered with a QR code. Wearing a mask is mandatory to enter any public gatherings including MICE events. Body temperature measuring at entries, providing applicable PPE, disinfecting the venues and frequent reminders and changing of the indoor air are among the safety measures. In addition PLUS SEOUL support program added more options including Personal Hygiene Kit support, Rentals of Thermal Imaging Cameras, Venue Disinfecting Services on the revised version.
