COEX is a huge multi-purpose convention complex located at the very edge of Gangnam district and the leading MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions) venue in Asia, having hosted the 2010 G20 Summit, which brought together the heads of state of the world's twenty largest economies.

I had the most awesome time visiting this place with my girlfriend on Saturday afternoon. We went to check out the food festival event by Eat The Seoul, and the Craft Beer Festival.

The Beer festival and the Food festival are at two separate locations. The Beer festival is on the main square outside the Samseong Subway Exit, while the Food festival is located near the East Gate of COEX. For the beer festival, you can purchase vouchers which you can exchange for different types of beer at the booth, while the food festival, you pay on site at each booth. Collect the receipts and if you spend a certain amount, you can get a free Over-Action Rabbit action figured mug cup, or an eco-bag. We got our mug cup after spending around 35,000 KRW.

You can also enjoy busking performances, rock concerts and enjoy the indoor eating place which features cute rabbit figures, a perfect place for photo-shoots. Don't miss out this event, as it's an opportunity for a perfect outing with food, beer and a good vibe.
