The official event name is Kobe Design Airport 2011: A Week of Design Fun at the Airport, "Posekore" Kobe Poster Collection. The exhibit was organized by Kobe designer Ariyoshi and the Kobe Design Airport Executive Committee. At this art event to share the charms of Kobe through poster design, activities will draw local residents, artists and students with an interest in design in addition travelers at the airport. The goal is to create new value for the airport. Forty-thousand people are expected to see the exhibit.

The exhibit will be held until November 5. Admission is free. On the final day will be a party with a "design and regionality" theme. Events planned include public presentations, get-togethers, panel discussions and more with the designers exhibiting at Posekore. (Attending the party will require advance reservation.
