[ News, Society, October 24 2007] Seoul to hold annual design olympics

Korea's capital announced a plan Wednesday (Oct. 24) to hold a yearly global conference on design, apparently buoyed by its selection as the "World Design Capital" for 2010 by an international group on industrial design.

Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon said the envisioned event, tentatively named "Design Olympics," will also involve design awards and exhibitions.

"The project is aimed at enhancing Seoul's brand image," Oh told reporters. "The charm of a city is directly linked to its economy."
