The Cheongju Craft Biennale Organizing Committee announced on July 23 that it signed an official partnership with SK Hynix at the office of Cheongju City Hall on July 22.
SK Hynix, a global semiconductor company, has joined as an official partner of the 2021 Cheongju Craft Biennale, the world's first and largest festival in the craft sector.
Following the signing of the partnership, SK Hynix will purchase tickets worth 30 million won to cheer for the successful hosting of the biennale, while the biennale committee promised proper treatment to its official partner such as invitations to official events and exposure to media advertisements.
Moon Yoo-jin, vice president of Cheongju branch of SK Hynix, said, "I think it is very meaningful to be a partner with the Cheongju Craft Biennale, a global festival with the world," adding, "I hope this partnership will give strength to the community that is shrinking due to COVID-19."
"As SK Hynix, a global company that is symbiotic with the region, joined as a partner, this biennial under the theme of Symbiotic Tools could add to the value of symbiosis," said Han Beom-deok, mayor of Cheongju, chairman of the organizing committee.
