About Daegu
Daegu is the third-largest metropolitan city after Seoul and Busan with a population of 2.5 million and is an international city where high-tech industries, culture and arts coexist.

Daegu plans to restructure the local economy around the Water, Hi-tech Medical, Future Vehicles, Energy, Robot, and the newly selected Smart City industries as part of the “5+1 New Growth industries.” The new policies of the initiative aim to lead the convergence of technology with industry, and shift the current paradigm of manufacturing-oriented industries to a business-oriented paradigm centered around future industries that will change the structure of the local economy.

Daegu also boasts a diverse culture with a long history, from abundant Buddhist cultural heritage to modern culture. The city is loved by international conference participants as a city where you can enjoy numerous festivals throughout all four seasons, various foods, beautiful night views, and downtown alley tours.
