Tournament Venue

Debate Korea Open 2019 will be held in KINTEX (Korea International Exhibition&Convention Center) in Goyang, Gyeonggi-do. KINTEX is a well-known exhibition hall with its mesmerizing size and convenient facilities. For this reason, KINTEX was also used to host The Main Press Center of 2018 Inter-Korean Summit in last April.

Debate Korea Open 2019는 경기도 고양시 KINTEX에서 개최되며, KINTEX는 큰 크기의 전시장과 다양한 편의시설로 잘 알려진 곳입니다. 이러한 이유 때문에, KINTEX는 작년 4월 2018 남북정상회담의 주 프레스센터로 사용되었습니다.
