Panasonic’s new boss lined up for keynote speech at CES
June 28th, 2012
On the same day that Panasonic shareholders approved Kazuhiro Tsuga as their new president, the Consumer Electronics Association has announced he will deliver the opening keynote address at the 2013 International CES (Consumer Electronics Show).
CES features thousands of global technology companies who reveal their latest innovations in categories including TVs, mobiles, tablets, gaming, entertainment and more. At this year’s CES both LG and Samsung unveiled their big-screen OLED TVs and Haier showcased one of the smallest washing machines in the world.
Occasionally the technology has been so advanced that the companies are not yet able to mass produce the prototypes and products enter the market years later.
Gary Shapiro, president of the CEA took the timely announcements as an opportunity to congratulate Tsuga.
“Panasonic is one of the largest and most dynamic consumer electronics companies in the world, and I congratulate Mr. Tsuga on his official appointment to president of Panasonic Corporation this morning,” said Shapiro.
“We are thrilled to have Mr. Tsuga take the stage for his opening keynote at the 2013 International CES, and we look forward to hearing his vision for the future of Panasonic and its leadership in green innovation.”
