When Asian leaders descend on Jeju this weekend they will gather at one of the best meeting facilities in Asia, maybe even the world.
International Convention Center Jeju, at the Jungmun Tourist Resort, is a state-of-the-art building, made even more luxurious for the important ASEAN Summit, June 1-2. From new carpeting and remodeled cafes to upgrades in the internet technology and communications system, ICC Jeju will meet participants’ needs.
The facility features six floors in a glass, steel and concrete building overlooking the impressive south coast of Jeju and the favored honeymoon destination, Jungmun beach.
ICC Jeju has a range of meeting rooms, convention halls and assembly spaces, from intimate to impressive, as well as a sunken garden, Ieodo Plaza. For the ASEAN Summit, Tamna Hall, located on the fourth floor, will be the focal point for the summit participants.
Tamna Hall has 4,300 theater-style seats and 3,500 classroom-style seats. It is equipped with an ultra-modern support system, including an eight-language simultaneous interpreting system and an electronically moveable stage.
It can be reconfigured into various arrangements, from an end-stage style theater to an arena-like open floor plan. More than 3,000 people, including the heads of state, are expected to attend the summit.
Participants may also make use of the other spaces available at ICC Jeju.
Halla Hall, located on the underground first floor, has a 660 seating capacity and a four-language interpreting system. It can be adapted for large conferences, assemblies, lectures, banquets and movies.
Samda Hall, also on the first floor, seats 300, and be divided into two smaller rooms. It has a four-language interpreting system and full audio-visual capabilities, as do the other halls.
The final first floor space is the VIP room, and is supplied with top-of-the-line technical equipment, including a remote video teleconference system.
There are also meeting rooms on the first and second floors, with up to 11 spaces available and suitable for international summit-level talks and meetings.
Located on the second floor, the Event Hall can be used for conventions large or small. It is also conveniently situated for easy access to loading areas and traffic lines.
ASEAN summit participants may want to take a break from all the meeting by catching the ocean breeze on Ieodo Plaza, a seaward outdoor area attached to the convention center. It features a beautiful sunken garden and is a popular site for open-air banquets and weddings.
ICC Jeju is not expecting any weddings to take place among the summit participants, but organizers do hope the center’s facilities and the participants’ needs are a match made in heaven.
