Enterprise and integration – from january 18 until february 28, 2018; The Visit Korea Committee (VKC, Chairman Park Sam-Koo) opens the 2018 Korea Grand Sale, an annual shopping and cultural tourism festival targeting foreigners that runs.

The Korea Grand Sale promotes foreign tourism by providing a wide range of exciting cultural and shopping opportunities in South Korea. As KGS overlaps with the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, foreign tourists are expected to receive more benefits from the six weeks of “Brand Day”.
Secretary General Han Kyung-Ah of VKC says, “The event in 2018 overlaps with the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, so we are creating an uplifting atmosphere and preparing to welcome our incoming foreign guests.” Also, “we will make efforts to revitalize the foreign tourist market that has been weak as of late“.

KGS and Seoul City are collaborating to create a tourism guide and provide interpretation services at temporary tourist information desks and event centers located at seven spots around the metropolitan area.

The added enjoyment of 2018 Korea Grand Sale is the Brand Day held for six weeks. The VKC features new shopping benefits everyday during our event period.
