SOUTH KOREA Coex, the convention and exhibition centre located in Seoul, is transforming its existing underground mall into an environmentally-friendly space under the direction of a new International Events Marketing unit.

Exhibition and convention facilities will not be affected during the development, which is expected to be completed in December 2014.

Coex Mall will re-open with large luxury indoor and outdoor spaces accompanied by a variety of domestic and global outlets, cafes and eateries.

Having international events previously managed by the existing convention and venue teams, the new Coex International Events Marketing Unit has been created to offer a dedicated team to manage international events, overseas marketing and promotional efforts.
