Prior to WEF, the Group also promoted Busan’s bid at the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) General Assembly in Paris in June and November last year, with fleet vehicles wrapped with the Busan World Expo logo.

The Group also supported the Busan World Expo bid with promotional banners and brochures during the official vehicle delivery ceremony at the G20 Bali Summit in Jakarta, Indonesia, last November.

In addition, the Group is utilizing its global network to further support the bid through various marketing activities, such as new product launches. Also, the Group is producing content to highlight Busan’s ability to host the World Expo and its vision for the future and sharing it through social channels, including YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn.
