Insider's Scoop on the International Conference

Archive Copy. Tips for Getting the Most out of the 2013 International Conference

As we start counting down the hours to the 2013 KOTESOL International Conference, we thought you might appreciate a few tips from inside ConComm. We hope these help you enjoy your conference experience!

First, everyone should note that the conference venue is not the same as last year. We're across the street, in the old campus. As you're heading up the hill from the subway, turn right at the main gate, instead of left. If you find yourself on a huge flight of stairs, you're in the wrong place.

No ATM at conference

Unfortunately, there is no ATM (bank machine) on the Sookmyung campus.*

KOTESOL cannot accept credit or debit cards for your conference registration or membership dues.

We srongly recommend you visit the bank on the way in - there are several banks on the way from the subway stations.

(Although many book vendors will accept credit cards, some smaller shops might not be able to away from their physical home store.)

* there is a small machine on the 2nd campus (across the street) but it quickly runs out of cash.
