Japan will host the 2020 Olympics, and it proposes to reuse three venues built for the 1964 Games. In addition, a new 80,000-seat main stadium will be built. Designed by Zaha Hadid, it will include a retractable roof and incorporate "futuristic" elements. A slideshow gives a look at some renderings.
In a major move ahead of next year's Olympic Games in Beijing, Coca-Cola Co. has shifted a sizeable portion of its creative account for Coke in China, from Interpublic Group's McCann Erickson to Publicis Groupe's Leo Burnett. As part of the switch, Burnett has hired two McCann executives to work on the account through the beverage maker's new unit, dubbed Red Lounge, which is managing marketing in China for the Coke brand and its Olympic sponsorship.
