- Digital advertisement captures vibrant designs featuring iconic Busan symbols like seagulls and Gwangan Bridge, along with message “BUSAN is Ready”

Hyundai Motor Group (the Group) is ramping up efforts in the final stage of appealing Busan’s bid to host the 2030 World Expo, a candidate city, by unveiling large-scale outdoor advertisement in Paris, France, where the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) is headquartered.
The digital outdoor advertisement captures vibrant designs featuring iconic Busan symbols like seagulls and the Gwangan Bridge, along with the message ‘BUSAN is Ready,’ conveying the city’s readiness to host the 2030 World Expo. The Group also highlights Busan’s commitment to hosting a carbon-neutral World Expo by featuring the IONIQ 5, its dedicated electric vehicle, in the videos.
The Group plans to operate advertisement on digital screens in Parisian landmarks with high-traffic locations, such as Terne district, Gare Saint-Lazare and La Défense, to foster a positive consensus on Busan’s bid.
In addition, the Group wrapped vehicles with the Busan World Expo logo and promotional phrases to support Busan’s bid during the 172nd General Assembly of the BIE in Paris last June and the Davos Forum in Switzerland last January. The art cars have also promoted Busan’s determination to host the World Expo at landmarks in key global cities, such as New York, New Delhi and Jakarta.
Furthermore, the Group has created over 90 innovative content pieces, including social media-friendly short-form videos and infographics, to market Busan as the perfect host city. In particular, the promotional video “Busan Initiative with the Whole World” released by the Group last month for attracting the Busan Expo has surpassed 100 million views in just 17 days since its release, contributing to showcasing the strong determination of Busan as a host city.
