SEOUL, South Korea, Dec. 7, 2012 /CNW/ - The Korea Invention Promotion 
Association (KIPA) today announced that the Seoul International Invention Fair 
2012, which was held Nov. 29-Dec. 2 in COEX Hall A in the Republic of Korea, 
was so successful that it has become one of the world's largest international 
invention fairs. 
Despite its short history, Seoul International Invention Fair, which 
celebrated its 8(th) anniversary this year, hosted approximately 700 
new-generation inventions, new products and technology from 32 different 
countries including USA, Russia and Taiwan, attracting visitors from all over 
the world. 
The grand prize winner of this year's Seoul International Invention Fair was 
Min-chi Chung and his five co-inventors from Taiwan who developed an 
Extraction Device for Different Phases and Polar Ingredients. This invention 
is used for concentrating essential fat and water-soluble substances. HYUNDAI 
MOBIS Co., Ltd. won the semi-grand prize by presenting its invention, Car Flap 
Control System and Its Methods of Control. Installed in the front of the 
vehicle, this invention not only controls the flap which controls the quantity 
of air flowing into the radiator but also prevents overheating the engine. 
Among other semi-grand prize winners were: 9 more inventors and companies 
including Lee Sang-min (Mini Hand Held Electric Driver Using Decelerator) and 
Hansung Food Co., Ltd. (Method of Making Low-Sodium Broccoli), etc. 
Apart from the exhibition and publicity of inventions, the Seoul International 
Invention Fair 2012 has also organized the business matchmaking pavilion for 
domestic and foreign buyers in order to promote business activities. Many 
well-known global buyers have participated in this year's program such as 
Korea's major department stores and biggest on-line shopping malls, 
'' (the largest Internet auction site in the Asia-Pacific), Rakuten 
(the largest on-line shopping mall in Japan), e-Bay, and Amazon. 
This year, the invention fair played a very special role as it was held along 
with the Korea Invention Patent Exhibition 2012, and 2012 Trademark-Design 
Right Exhibition. It was a huge international exchange venue where various 
information about intellectual property such as invention, design and patent 
were all shared at the same time and place to a greater extent than which has 
ever occurred anywhere in the world.
