The 2014 Incheon Asian Games Organizing Committee (IAGOC) participated in the “Korea Tourism Week 2013” in Jakarta, Indonesia, over the weekend, to attract Indonesian tourists to the Asian Games next year.


The Korea Tourism Week 2013 in Jakarta was organized by Korea Tourism Organization from December 13 through 15, as an event to promote tourism in Korea for the occasion of the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon.  During the event, local media and the tourism industry in Indonesia were invited to attend the press conference and various presentations on the Asian Games ticketing process and tourist packages.  Some 2,000 people gathered at the event.


Also to celebrate the event, a Korean Tourism Night and a Korean Wave Festival were held to draw the local crowd.  The Korean Wave Festival, held at a large shopping mall, was an especially large attraction for the locals.  Thousands of people visited the promotion booths and watched promotional videos for the Asian Games and the JYJ music video for the Incheon Asiad Song, “Only One”.


The event was held to promote the Asian Games in Southeast Asia, and the IAGOC will continue with similar events throughout Asia next year in order to promote and attract tourists to the Asian Games.
