The event was hosted in collaboration with the World Wedding Forum who gave the keynote address. Minister from Embassy of Republic of Korea in India inaugurated the event with his welcome remarks.

To begin Indian destination wedding in Korea, KTO is focussing on small boutique and themed weddings along with pre & post wedding photoshoots at unique locations. A luxury honeymoon in Korea is also a prime target for KTO. The focus of the webinar was mainly on Jeju Island which is also known as the “Hawaii of Korea” and is famous for weddings and honeymoon. The webinar highlighted Korea’s capabilities in managing the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Indian food availability and unique venues where Indian weddings can be organized.
