The 2018 Annual Meetings of the African Development Bank Group will take place at the Busan Exhibition and Convention Center (BEXCO) in Busan, Republic of Korea. BEXCO opened its doors in May 2001 at the ideal location of Haeundae, a popular tourist spot. Since then, it has continuously set new records as successfully hosting terrific events such as International Telecommunication Union Telecom World in 2017, Inter-American Development Bank Annual Meeting of the Boards of Governors in 2015. Based on the continued success, BEXCO has been rapidly growing as “Asia’s leading exhibition and convention hub.”
The 2018 Annual Meetings of the African Development Bank will be held at the Exhibition Center 1, the Convention Hall and the Auditorium Building of BEXCO.
Address: #55 APEC-ro, Haeundae-gu, Busan, Republic of Korea (Postal Code 48060)

For the participants’ convenience, food courts, convenience stores, bank, postal, telecommunication, tour and car rental services will be available in BEXCO. Also the world’s largest department store, Shinsegae Centum City, is located right in the center of the convention district. It is a super large-scale shopping space that also offers leisure and cultural facilities including a spa, a skating rink and a multiplex theater.
The price of cotton may decline, but never the price of textile and garments. The price of cocoa may decline, but never the price of chocolates.
