KR Hospitality and Events originated from KR Travel, who was founded in 2009. The company started as an inbound agent for tour operators worldwide, and simultaneously developed MICE services to European and American companies. KR H&E reached its pinnacle during the Pyeongchang Winter Games 2018, where they established themselves as the main supplier of accommodation, hospitality and training venues to a wide range of clients.
KR H&E will use the knowledge and experience to offer services during Tokyo Summer Games 2020 and Beijing Winter Games 2022. Our clients are at the heart of our philosophy, and their needs are central to our operational services. We employ the best local expertise who speaks, understands and respects the local culture and language and – above all – understands and implements the needs of our clients. Our mission is to take away the client’s concern, thus guaranteeing a pleasant and carefree stay, without any unexpected cost.
Who are we?

His sister Eunsun Kim is at the heart of the company and deals with financial and legal issues. Roelofs, who speaks five languages, was adopted from Korea and grew up in the Netherlands. His sister Kim stayed in Korea and the two grew up separately, only to be reunited at age 21. Together they are running a successful business for many years now.
