2016 Global Suppliers Conference Held
A Global Suppliers Conference was recently held for invited business partners who support manufacturing operations around the globe. The event, attended by more than 430 members of upper management from 209 companies in 13 countries around the world, included explanations of new medium-term management policies by President Hiroyuki Yanagi and other directors responsible for implementation. As a forum for expressing gratitude for efforts made over the past year, the event deepened communication and ties with YMC's management team. Global awards were presented to business partners who achieved major global contributions.
The conference also featured a mini-concert taking "Two Yamahas, One Passion" as its concept theme, with a performance by the FUJIN and RAIJIN instruments designed in collaboration by Yamaha Corporation and Yamaha Motor together with a Yamaha concert grand piano being tremendously well received. The event made partnership ties with suppliers even stronger.
