Wood welcomed the sponsors of the conference and the networking event, thanking them for their generosity in support of The Council’s mission. He then invited Hyunchul Park, CEO, Lotte Property & Development, the primary sponsor of the reception and the team behind Seoul’s Lotte Tower, to the stage.

Following Mr. Park’s toast, Wood returned to the stage to offer some final sentiments and to remind attendees of the full conference program and awards dinner to take place the following day. Guests continued to enjoy food and drink until the event’s ending around 7:30pm.
