Wireless Technology Park (WTP) is an exclusive event focused on the research and development of wireless technology, and has been held every year in cooperation with industry, academia, and government.

WTP consists of three areas: the “Exhibition” where you can find the latest wireless technologies and researches, the “Seminar” that introduces the recent technical trends in wireless communications, and the “Academia Session” where university laboratories present their R&D results.

This year, WTP is planning exciting projects such as exhibitions and seminars under the special theme of "Wireless Technology that Supports Smart Society", an exhibition of results from academia-industry collaborative researches, and an exhibition on the history of wireless technology. We look forward to your visit.
