Friday October 7th was a night filled with great funfair, Canon, the world’s leading imaging solution company, launched its Nigerian company, Canon Nigeria Images Solutions Limited, and for all in attendance it was a night that will never be forgotten. It was a night of revelations, fun, music and lovely food. In summary Canon spoilt all in attendance.
The event started with a cocktail at the ballroom of the Orientals Hotel situated in Oniru, Victoria Island, Lagos. It was an opportunity for the early comers to mingle and network together while small chops, juice and champaign were in excess supply. That was just the tip of the iceberg.
Moments after the cocktail, the guests were ushered into the main hall for the event proper and men, it was breathtaking starting from the hall setting, the drinks on the table and even the lightings, one was sure that it will surely be a great night.
The launch/gala night kickstarted with a presentation on the Canon Brand by Mr Koji Sato, Sales Development & Marketing Director Emerging Markets. The audience was taken through where Canon was coming from and where they are at the moment as a multibillion dollars global organization. The speaker also explained the reason Canon came to Nigeria, one of which was the yearning of the teeming youths of the country for quality service and the great market potentials of Nigeria in Africa. He also made us realise Canon, as a brand, is coming into Nigeria to improve its image and also increase its market share in the country’s booming imaging industry.
Other speakers such as Mr. Somesh Adukia, Mr Michele Tuscano and the Canon Marketing team spoke glowingly of the Canon brand and also presented various products for different markets e.g. Imaging, Photography and the Videography markets were ably covered by the Canon brand. Group of distributors that will also help put the various products in the hands of the consumers were also presented.
Fun was not in short supply as some A-list musicians such as Tekno and Waje, were on hand to wow the already excited audience. Part of the entertainment were sumptuous meals with enough to drink for everyone that were present in the hall.
Several attendees won colour printers by answering questions from the Speakers that presented earlier. Canon also wowed everyone in attendance by giving out a free photo printer with photo printing papers to go with each printer. The event was still going on when Android Nigeria took leave at 11:20pm but we left with a sense of fulfillment that will take long to match.
WELCOME CANON NIGERIA!
