KABC is known above all for its forums in which a real interface dialogue is developed through the moderating skills of managing director of KABC.

The monthly KBF has about 70 members from foreign, and Korean companies as well as embassies.

The “Second Chance Breakfast” is particularly valued by those who missed the main event or want a small group discussion on the topic of the month.
