Great number of renowned guests and experts will grace the opening ceremony with their presences online on the first day, followed by the conference to address pending issues in the marine leisure industry lasting to the next day.


Helped by the Jeju KCTV studio, the conference provides live streaming service via the official website ( www.j-marinexpo.com ) and Youtube channel. Anyone can enjoy 4 sessions of the conference held under different subjects namely ocean New-deal strategy for Korean marine leisure industry (Oct. 15; 10:30-11:30); cooperation between marine-city governments (Oct. 15; 14:00-15:30); current situation and policy for win-win development & promotion of the marine leisure industry of Jeju (Oct. 16; 10:00-11:30); and safety measures commensurate with a boom in the marine leisure industry (10. 16. 14:00-15:30).


The event provides attendees with an opportunity for enjoying marine leisure programs.

The activities for ticket winners will be provided by 5 companies until the first half of 2021.


The MOF minister states on his video message that “It is all the more meaningful to host the international marine leisure expo on Jeju island, the home to the marine leisure industry. The expo will hopefully promote more people to enjoy the marine leisure activities.”
