Brussels (Belgium) - The next Icograda Regional Meeting will be held in Taipei (Taiwan) on 28-29 September 2002. The meeting will address the state of graphic design in Asia through presentations and workshops and will end with the development of a regional agenda.

An 'Innovalue and Branding' seminar will run concurrently with the meeting. To attend the Icograda Regional Meeting, register by 31 August 2002.    
    
In the past two years, Icograda Regional Meetings have been held in Istanbul, Seoul, Copenhagen, Zagreb, Cuba, Melbourne, Vancouver and recently, in Brno. These meetings have been successful in advancing the graphic design profession by promoting design awareness around the world. The Taipei Regional Meeting will be held at the International Trade Building/Taipei World Trade Centre in Taiwan.    
    
In addition to the Regional Meeting, a seminar on the theme of 'Innovalue and Branding' will be held on 27 September 2002. Participants and presenters will exchange views on brand worth, design strategy and marketing. The seminar will provide valuable design ideas for manufacturers who wish to upgrade their corporate and brand images. Speakers include Robert Peters (Canada), Mervyn Kurlansky (Denmark), Yu Bing-nan (China), William Harald-Wong (Malaysia), Chang Don-Ryun (Korea), and Stan Shih (Acer Inc.) and Liu Chin-Biau (Giant Mfg.
