Sony, Canon and Panasonic have confirmed they will attend the Photokina 2020 trade show in May, with Canon suggesting it is ‘eager’ to launch new products at the show.
The announcement follows news earlier this year that Nikon, Olympus and Leica will skip the now-annual Cologne event.
Go Tokura, Chief Executive Officer Image Communication Business Operations at Canon, said: “As the imaging industry is at a significant turning point, we expect photokina to be a leading show of the worldwide photo and imaging industry. Canon is eager to introduce new products and concept products at photokina, thereby contributing to the industry’s success.”
Panasonic and Sony commented:
“For many years, photokina has been the ideal platform for us to present our product innovations. The Imaging industry is facing big changes and challenges these days. In 2020, we will also be coming to Cologne with big expectations in the new photokina format and are looking forward to contributing with great innovations.” – Yosuke Yamane, Director Smart Life Network Business Division at Panasonic
“Sony is very glad to be part of Photokina again next year. Photokina 2020 gives us the opportunity to present our latest innovations and to maintain a direct dialog with all Digital Imaging Lovers. Sony is looking forward to seeing you all in Cologne.” – Yosuke Aoki, Senior General Manager of the Marketing Division at Sony Imaging Products & Solutions
