Keeping the best conventions
Seoul's newest and finest convention center opened at the Grand Hilton Seoul making it the venue of choice for domestic and international meetings and conventions.
Facing directly across from the Main Hotel, the center houses a large convention hall as well as small and medium-sized banquet halls and conference rooms. Prior to the opening of the new building, meetings and conventions were held in the Hotel's Grand Ballroom, but the new purpose- built Convention Center gives the Grand Hilton Seoul an independent and separate facility within a minute's walk of the Hotel. Featuring a spacious lobby and reception area, the new Convention Center provides a quiet and tranquil atmosphere that facilitates smooth transitions between cocktail receptions, meals and meetings.
The all-in-one concept is a strong selling point which event planners will like. The forth-floor Convention Hall offers a contemporary atmosphere combined with state-of-the-art audio-visual facilities.
Capable of accommodating up to 2,500 guests, this business-oriented venue is perfectly suited for international events, workshops and seminars.
The third-floor Emerald Hall blends modern and classical design elements to create an inviting and spacious venue. Capable of accommodating anywhere from 100 to 1,200 persons, this venue is suitable for events of all sizes including seminars, workshops, small scale music concerts and engagement parties.
The Diamond Hall can seat up to 340 guests and includes a large reception area plus an adjoining but separate banquet room which allows a smooth transition of guests between events.
Spacious and tastefully decorated, the third and forth floor reception areas provide an elegant yet cozy atmosphere for all kinds of meeting. Tastefully appointed with modern style tables and leather chairs, the reception area offers a sophisticated, relaxed atmosphere that guests will appreciate especially during transitions between events. A glass wall brings the outdoor scenery indoors, further enhancing the ambience.
The Grand Hilton Seoul Convention Center is the perfect setting for international meetings and conventions. The Convention Center has successfully hosted such events as the 21st Inter-Korean Ministerial Talks from May 29 to June 1 and extraordinary FIFA Congress and the 3rd World Knowledge Forum. It's been a busy time at the Convention Center with numerous medical associations and other groups making use of its superb facilities for their annual get-togethers. The Convention Center was also the venue for former President Kim Dae-Jung to celebrate the anniversary of his receipt of the Nobel Peace Prize.
No event is too large or too small. The flexibility of the room arrangement allows endless possibilities. The Grand Hilton Seoul is the ideal venue because of its peaceful locale yet it offers the convenience of being just a 15-minute drive away from Seoul's City Hall and also the closet deluxe hotel to the new Incheon International Airport.
