The South Korean city of Pyeongchang has been awarded the opportunity to host the 2018 Winter Olympics. “It’s really an exciting excuse to learn all about Korea,” said Luis Maravi, the marketing manager of the Korea Tourism Organization’s New York office, located in Fort Lee, N.J. “We feel that as the Games get closer, it’s really going to help us gain exposure for Korea and all it has to offer.”

Pyeongchang edged out Munich and the French town of Annecy to win the bid after falling short for both the 2010 Winter Olympics and the 2014 Games. In 1988, the International Olympic Committee chose Seoul to host the Summer Games in 1988, which had a huge impact on development in the city because it opened up the area south of the Han River. This will be South Korea’s first Winter Games, and as such will present an opportunity to showcase the country’s bounty of ski resorts. Pyeongchang, located about 100 miles east of Seoul, is a popular ski resort area in the Taebaek Mountains. In 2002, Korea and Japan co-hosted a successful FICA World Cup tournament.
