    Thank you for your interest. At this time we are currently only planning the Seoul conference, as Seoul is a major city and we would like to make it easy for our attendees outside of South Korea to join us. Hopefully it won’t be too hard for potential attendees located in Korea to join. -Crystal, excitELT
