BlogTalk and Lift Asia in Jeju

Posted by Channy Yun

Lift Asia 09 and Blog Talk 2009 will be held in Jeju, Korea in one week from 15th to 18th September. I engaged in both conferences as one of supporters.

Lift Asia 09 will happen on 17th and 18th. The conference will be themed “Serious Fun!” and I look forward to welcome you in the spectacular Pacific shore for two days of incredible inspiration and networking. In last year of Lift Asia 08, many people felt this was a special event, offering some of the best ever social moments, incredible speeches and ideas never heard before, and unique networking opportunities with some of the most interesting people in the world.

Blog Talk 2009 will be held in 15th 16th in same place. It is also traditional European based conference continuing with its focus on social software, while remaining committed to the diverse cultures, practices and tools of our emerging networked society. You can submit just 1 page proposal to present your idea and thought till 31th. July.

Venue is very excellent. Actually I lived for 4 years in Jeju island via Google Maps, a famous Korean tour spot. Its nature is very beautiful and one of top world tour spots although people don’t know well.

Jeju is a volcanic island far from 130 km from the southern coast of Korea. The island contains the Natural World Heritage Site entitled Jeju Volcanic Island and Lava Tubes.

Mt. Hallasan, the tallest mountain in South Korea and a dormant volcano rises 1,950m above sea level and 360 satellite volcanoes are around all of island. You can feel different kinds of plants by level from subtropics to cold zone. (Volcanoes were already dead and not dangerous. They are covered by green glasses and trees with some of volcanic outcrops.)

It also has beautiful emerald colored beaches with black volcanic rocks and white sands. I have been in Miami beach in US, but both is almost similar except length of beach.

Recently Jeju island was listed in a finalist of New 7 wonders of Nature that includes top 28 natural spots in the world. If you visit Jeju via Seoul, you can also experience the 3rd. busiest routes in the world.

You can see many photos for Jeju and BlogTalk 08, Lift Asia 08.
