YEOSU, North Jeolla Province – More problems have hit the Yeosu Expo, as the online ticket reservation system has been scrapped due to complaints from visitors who failed to see the pavilions they desired.
The Expo has faced a myriad of problems since opening 16 days ago, including low attendance which is about a third of what they expected. This past weekend, however, was a bright spot for the Expo as they surpassed 100,000 visitors a day for the first time, but were bombarded by complaints from angry travelers who failed to enter the eight most popular exhibition halls.
“We decided to close our ticket reservation system at noon today as the number of complaints over the system has rapidly increased in the past week,” PR chief Cho Yong-hwan of the organizing committee said during a press conference held yesterday.
“All of the tickets for the Yeosu Expo will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. We sincerely apologize to people visiting the event for generating such confusion, but the decision was made to reduce more potential problems that might occur in the next three months.”
The Expo will run from May 12 to August 12. For more info, visit the official site.
