Pyeongchang County, Korea

Pyeongchang County has long been a tourist destination for South Koreans, featuring such breathtaking natural features as Odesan Mountain National Park in Daegwanryeong. The county will be host to the 2018 Winter Olympics; to prepare, it is making large investments in its infrastructure including a high-speed rail line connecting Pyeongchang and Seoul. The county wants to make sure these investments will be sustainable after the Olympics by drawing global tourism to the region. Mayor JaeKook Sim asked IBM to help the city develop a tourism strategy that will realize its vision of becoming the premiere “City for Relaxation, Tourism, Leisure, and Sports.”
