Q2. I want to arrive/leave Korea sooner/later than the dates of the SITMMT2019 event.
Can you adjust the flight dates?
A2. Basically, the flight ticket provided is from June 5th to 8th. However, participants may request desired flight tickets
±2~3 days of the event.
However, kindly note that this cannot be guaranteed due to the limit of the budget of the flight ticket per capita.
Additionally, please keep in mind that the travel expenses such as accommodation fee of the additional period of
your stay should be paid personally.

A5. Anyone from your company can participate in the SITMMT2019 event without limit,
but ONLY one person can receive the benefits of our event(1 Round-way flight ticket, 3 nights accommodation,
familiarization tour, lunch, dinner etc.).
This means the companion of the official hosted buyer has to pay the travel expenses personally.
However, kindly note that the accommodation provided you can choose either double-bed or twin-bed

Therefore, if you are willing to use the same hotel with your companion, please make sure you request a twin room
