Canon celebrates 15 delightful years in the Philippines
Last July 4, Digital imaging leader Canon Philippines held a Night of Delight at the Harbor Garden Tent of Sofitel Philippine Plaza. This is to celebrate 15 years in the Philippines and to honor their partners in success. The exclusive guest list consisted of friends and partners from media, dealers, sponsors and other companies and organizations that have been part of Canon’s success.
Canon had a display of technologies – a series of beautiful vintage cameras and camcorders, printers and calculators that have taken part of history and is obviously part of their collections.
PEZA Director General Lilia de Lima delivered the keynote speech while Canon Asia Marketing Group President and CEO, Hideki Ozawa, and the Japanese Ambassador to the Philippines, Toshinao Urabe, delivered their speeches and commended the company for this success. There were local celebrities and endorsers who took part in this celebration – the Miss Earth 2012 pageant winners, the lovely Vina Morales, and Piolo Pascual, who won the audience’s hearts by singing a couple of ballads.
Canon’s Philippine operations are considered as among the main drivers of the Japanese multinational’s impressive growth in Asia. They operate three units in the Phlippines: Canon Information Technologies, Canon Business Machines, and Canon Marketing. Since it began operations, Canon Marketing Philippines Inc. has consistently displayed double-digit growth and caters to a wide range of clients including multi-million dollar companies, entrepreneurs from amateur to professional ones from all over the country.
According to Canon President and CEO Alan Chng, “Our tagline Delighting You Always” is not just for our clients and customers, it is also for our partners whose continued support has boosted steady growth and expansion of our Philippine organizations. Night of Delight is our way of saying ‘thank you’.”
