A fair specialized about Christmas will take place from Dec. 11 to 20 at the KINTEX Convention Center located in Goyang City, Gyeonggi Province. Co-hosted by EXPORUM, an exhibition company, this event is expected to become an effective marketing opportunity for participating firms by collecting the demands relating to the Christmas season.

On an average day, more than 10,000 people visited the venue during the period of the first event that took place last year. In this context, the organizing committee more than doubled the period and scale of the show this year. The fair is slated to be further developed into a tourist attraction representing the metropolitan area with cultural elements and products related to Christmas added to it.

The show is the largest Christmas-associated event in Korea, coming with diverse charity events to reflect the meaning of Christmas and imbued with its joyful atmosphere in which people buy gifts for others and enjoy a variety of things and activities for Christmas. It is expected that the fair will be a lasting memory for foreigners in Korea as well as Koreans.

The Molly Manners Korea International Conference for child English education is scheduled to be held with the show. The idea of the conference is to let children become confident in English and learn about international etiquette while playing with foreign friends instead of memorizing things at school. This program is for children aged four to 12 and their parents.

Also waiting for the visitors to the fair are Christmas gift packing lessons for unique Christmas gifts, the Christmas Wine & Spirit for a wine tasting with loved ones, and the Romantic Table Decoration in which renowned patisseries unveil their cookie-making expertise for family and friend gatherings.

At the same time, the Old Jazz Recital on a special stage is open to everyone at the venue who is willing to enjoy beautiful jazz piano melodies, and church choirs will present various Christmas carols there, too. Also scheduled are exciting parades accompanied by joyful music and popular animation characters. Santa Clauses will say hello and give gifts to kids at the venue as well.

Details of the fair are available at its official website at www.christmasfair.co.kr. Firms to participate in the show or the seminar can file an application at the website, too. A 30 percent discount is available for those applying on or before Oct. 30.
