The Busan Metropolitan Government and CBS, a broadcasting company, will work together to hold the Busan Brand Festa in an effort to support struggling local businesses and boost the local economy. The event, which will take place in Hall 3A of BEXCO’s Exhibition Center 1 from August 9 to 11 this year, will be a great opportunity for Busan residents to check out and buy great gifts before the Korean Thanksgiving holiday.

Busan Brand Festa will feature business meetings and opportunities, including potential deals with large distributor chains and collective purchase arrangements, and also encourage direct communication and transactions between consumers at large and businesses. It is expected to establish a new model of virtuous-cycle business, in which citizens, businesses, and local communities all work together.

The event is also significant in that it is supported by public institutions, associations, and cooperatives in Busan that all share the goal of revitalizing Busan’s economy. Featuring 150 booths of 120 companies, the event will offer proven products produced by both leading Busan-based companies and small local businesses.

Side events will include collective purchase briefings for district and county offices, public organizations, infomercial channels, and department stores as well as business meetings and job-matching consultations. “Lucky Boxes,” filled with the most popular products of leading companies, will also be distributed through a special event, giving consumers a valuable opportunity to test and experience the products. Any retail business based in Busan may participate by submitting a request via the event’s website at www.bbf.show.

DIA Festival in Busan 2019 @ BEXCO
Aug 9 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
○ Period: August 9-11, 2019

○ Venue: BEXCO

○ Hosted by: CJ ENM

○ Website: www.diafestival2019.com

CJ ENM, which has been supporting solo creators through its DIA TV program, will co-host DIA Festival 2019 in Busan with BEXCO from August 9 to 11 this year in BEXCO’s Halls 1 and 2A.

In its first three years, the festival was held in Seoul on a two-day schedule. Starting this year, however, it will be held in Busan on an extended three-day schedule to increase its accessibility to fans and the public.

The festival, which was first held at the COEX in 2016 and concluded its time in Seoul with a highly successful event at Gocheok Sky Dome last year, has so far attracted a total of 60 brands, 113,000 visitors, and over 400 teams of creators from Korea and abroad, gaining a strong reputation as a convention that satisfies spectators, creators, and businesses alike. Celebrating its fourth run in 2019, the DIA Festival will expand its scope of attention from creators to online and offline commerce, encouraging fans and participating businesses to experience the multichannel network business model.

Some YouTube celebrities, including Daedoseogwan, Yumdaeng, Park Mak-rye, and Bogyeom, have already confirmed their plans to attend and meet their fans at the festival. In addition to the main stage, which is reserved for events with large audiences, four more stages will be set up to cater to four different subjects of interest (games, food, style, and kids), featuring a wide range of creative works.

The expo will be divided into five themed pavilions—the Clean Water Pavilion, Air Pollution Pavilion, New and Renewable Energy Pavilion, Gas Industry Pavilion, and Power and Generation Pavilion —and feature a host of side events. In its seventh run this year, the Busan Global Water Forum will take place in the Convention Hall on September 18 and 19 under the theme “How to Design a Smart Water City.” During the event, the KOTRA-run Awards Ceremony for International Buyers and Exporters will be held in the consultation room. The Public Sector Meeting will also be held simultaneously, inviting major public institutions and organizations in the environment and energy industries as potential buyers. The Convention Hall and Conference Room, both located in Exhibition Center 1, will also host nearly two dozen environment- and energy-themed seminars. Side events will also be held in the Outdoor Exhibition Pavilion to raise public awareness of various environment- and energy-related issues.
