At the dawn of 2015, which according to the lunar calendar is the 32nd year of the sexagenarian cycle, the Year of Ram, the Foundation Gyeongju Hwabaek International Convention Center celebrates its grand opening in the 1,000-year-old capital of the Silla Kingdom.
Gyeongju has long been best-known as the ancient capital of opulent culture, history, and tourism; today it is being reborn as the City of Creativity and Tourism based on a new and modern impetus -- the convention industry.
Centering on HICO, a new paradigm of the tourism industry is needed. Likewise, precious tourism resources and industries in the region must converge to activate the local economy, igniting a new flame of hope and advancement into the future.
We at HICO cordially invite you to experience state-of-the-art facilities fit for international conventions carrying the spirit of Gyeongju.G13:G40
Meetings and conventions at HICO will be the place where man, culture, and history harmonize. We promise that you will be treated well by the cultural citizens of Gyeongju while you are here.
We at the beautiful city of Gyeongju will do our very best to make it the world’s most exemplary city of world-class conventions.
