Coex Convention & Exhibition Center located in Samseong-dong of Gangnam-gu district, Seoul, is one of South Korea's largest convention and exhibition centers. It was designed by Larry Oltmanns who was a Design Partner with SOM at the time. The four-story center has four exhibition halls and 48 meeting rooms. It is operated by Coex Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of Korea International Trade Association.

Situated on Teheranno in Samseong-dong, Gangnam-gu district of Seoul, the site is part of the COEX complex which includes the convention and exhibition center, the COEX Mall, three luxury hotels, an urban airport terminal, a multiplex cinema, the COEX Aquarium, CoexArtium Theater, ASEM Tower and the Seven Luck Casino. Up to 200,000 people visit it for work and shop every day.

Coex is served by Samseong Station on line 2 of the Seoul Subway.[1]
