The 2017 EROPA Conference and General Assembly was held in Seoul, Republic of Korea from 11 to 15 September 2017. Featured in multiple news agencies such as Yonhap, Munhwa, and 24KZ, social media is also part of the annual event's promotion.
In the past week (10-17 September 2017), up to 100,000 impressions were counted for the conference. This is greater than the 15,000 being reached by EROPA's social media outlets per month (recorded from January to August 2017). The conference in itself is one of the largest in recent years with around 600 registered participants from within Korea and overseas.
As this year's conference closes, we look forward to seeing you in the 2018 EROPA Conference in the Republic of Indonesia. Stay with us for more updates!
