The 2022 Daejeon UCLG Organizing Committee held the UCLG D-100 Commemorative Event at the Expo Citizens’ Square on the 2nd of July, in hopes of hosting a successful Congress. Some 1,000 participants gathered together during this event, including the Mayor of Daejeon Metropolitan City, local members of the National Assembly, District Mayors, key leaders, volunteer members, and local citizens. Starting with a promotional video of the Daejeon UCLG World Congress, various performances were presented, ranging from volunteer launching ceremony, dance troupe show, civic concert, and drone fireworks show.

During the volunteer launching ceremony, a letter of appointment was given to the volunteer members, and the representatives read a resolution pledging active participation and thoughtful volunteering throughout the Congress period. A celebratory performance was also held with the citizens in hope of the success of the Congress.

At the civic concert, the stage was set for various dance crews and singers. Daejeon City Dance Company featured Korean traditional dance moves while the world-famous choreography team, Dokteuk Crew, showcased its signature hip-hop compositions. A new K-POP girl group ‘Hi Cutie’, voice ensemble Noi Siamo, and the country’s top vocalists, Park Sang-min and Ali joined to perform as well.    

            Utilizing drones, the last performance featured musical fireworks show that combined science and art, impressing citizens and participants.
