Seoul claims first FCCI Forum as a success

The Seoul Tourism Organization (STO) has hailed the First Action Forum of the Future Convention Cities Initiative (FCCI), 20-22 March in Seoul, as a success in achieving the objectives set out beforehand.

members to meet several times per year to report on their activities,

“We were delighted when our partners in FCCI accepted our invitation to
come and dedicate two full days to work together on the FCCI agenda and
share their knowledge and experience with leaders in national and local
government and in the meetings industry,” said President and CEO of STO,
Samuel Koo. “We knew a lot could be achieved but the outcomes and the
strength of our partners’ positive reactions surpassed everyone’s
FCCI is coordinated by Fast Future Research, authors of the Convention 2020 study on the future of the meetings industry.
