The global business events organizer Coex Co., Ltd (Coex) and global financial news publisher International Business Times (IBTimes) have joined hands to offer global press release services to exhibiting clients at Coex's global trade shows.

IBTimes has made its global press release service available to exhibiting client firms at Coex's global trade shows. While it will be offered to all exhibitors, it will also be combined by default into the offerings given to international trade groups by Coex's 'International Pavilion Package' program.

The partnership will enhance Coex's offerings to exhibitors, creating a one-stop solution for promotional press release services. The combined press release offerings will provide exhibitors with exposure to global buyers, and the partnership is expected to reduce significant overheads for marketing for both Coex and its clients.

Commenting on the partnership, Coex's Senior Executive Vice President Mr. Hyung Bo Kim said: This joint package will enrich our capabilities. We are very glad that together, we can offer high-quality press release services to all of our International Pavilion Package clients. Our partnership will remove the hassle of reaching out to media outlets for the exhibitors. We hope that offering online press releases for our exhibitions will help Coex brand the events internationally, and attract more overseas participation.

Dev Pragad, COO of IBTimes commented, We believe that the partnership is in mutual interests and is based on long term understanding and cooperation. Press release service is the first step of this partnership. Through this partnership we will be able to provide better and more efficient services and products to our clients and end users in due course of time.

Partnering with Coex has given us the right platform to reach out to exhibitors worldwide. Coex has been the leader in organizing business events and this cooperation will lead to better products and services for both parties.
