According to Mr. Yokota: “This is an event about more than just giving customers a chance to view our products. Rather it offers a closer view of a 15 year Canon history covering 15 years. 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.”
