Every five years, Canon showcases its products, technologies, and ideas at the Canon EXPO. From September 10 to 11, 2015 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, NY, the company provided attendees with the chance to see and experience the breadth of its imaging technology and offered a look into future products, solutions, and services.
Canon EXPO 2015 featured more than 100,000 square feet of exhibition space in NY. Leading industry experts, photographers, film directors, and business thought leaders were scheduled to provide insight on how technology is changing the world and what innovations they see on the horizon.
“Throughout history, from roll film to digital cameras, wooden printing presses to inkjet technology, creators have relied on technology to discover new worlds and further the progress of mankind,” said Joe Adachi, chairman/CEO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “When we embark on new adventures, we explore uncharted territories, choosing to see what’s never been seen, and doing what has never been done. As today’s creators explore their world, continuing to dream and discover, Canon will be there for the journey, ready at the helm to provide the right technology to see impossible,” he added.
