Canon Marketing Vietnam announced on October 3 that it will host the Canon EXPO 2017, the largest exhibition of its kind the company has held in Vietnam, on the occasion of commemorating the 15th anniversary of Canon arriving in the country and its 80-year journey worldwide. The 12th annual Canon PhotoMarathon will also kick off in Da Nang, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

Held at Hoa Lu Stadium in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 1 from October 26 to 29, Canon EXPO will showcase the imaging leader’s solutions, technologies and products, set against a backdrop of famous entertainers, incredible sales promotions, photographic workshops, giveaways, and lucky draws.

Mr. Hiroshi Yokota, CEO of Canon Marketing Vietnam, confirmed with VET that the company’s business performance in Vietnam over the last 15 years has always recorded good results. After long-term stable development, Canon’s market share in Vietnam in both camera and printing products is more than 60 per cent.

“Canon has spent 15 years impressing Vietnam with its full range of imaging solutions, ranging from cameras to printers to photocopiers, as well as various enterprise solutions, including cost management and data security,” said Mr. Yokota. “We are thrilled to be the market leader for DSLRs, laser and inkjet printers. We are also second in digital cameras, and despite being new to the mirrorless market, already a Top 3 player.”

“We have never stopped innovating, researching and expanding new product lines to bring our customers the best possible imaging experience,” he went on. “No other company in Vietnam offers the range of imaging solutions that we do - from input devices like cameras to output to devices such as printers and photocopiers. Canon EXPO will showcase our full range and offer a load of surprises to our personal and enterprise customers.”

The exhibition will showcase the company’s cutting-edge technology, including EOS sensors of up to 120MP and 250MP resolution, 3D product printers, and 4K color monitors, some for the first time in Vietnam.

Visitors will be free to explore the Canon world, with discounts of up to 49 per cent on offer for products on display. In addition, they will have the opportunity to have their Canon cameras and lenses checked free of charge and can attend workshops with professional photographers.

“This event is about more than just giving customers a chance to view our products,” Mr. Yokota added. “Rather, it offers a closer view of Canon’s 15 years in Vietnam. It’s a chance for us to show our gratitude to our customers, dealers, and partners that have been part of our journey here for years.”

The Canon PhotoMarathon will be officially start in Da Nang on October 8 before reaching Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi on October 29 and November 5, respectively.
