Over 170 trade people attended, including chefs, menu developers and buyers from major hotels, restaurant chains and catering companies, retailers/distributors, food manufacturing companies, journalists and power bloggers in Seoul, its vicinity areas and as far away as Gwangju and Cheongju.

Following Ambassador Patrick Rata’s welcome speech, participants saw a presentation on how to use social media and enjoyed a food tasting session.
