The Cannata Report’s “Access Japan” to Feature Exclusive Editorial Content on Imaging Industry’s Japanese Big 6

May 8, 2018

First Ever Bonus Issue with Complementary Digital Content Reported From Top Level Meetings in Japan

The Cannata Report, the leading intelligence resource for business technology and imaging solutions resellers, will produce its first ever bonus content and special interest publication showcasing the Japanese Big Six—Canon, Inc., Konica Minolta, Inc., Kyocera Corporation, Ricoh Company Ltd., Sharp Corporation, and Toshiba Corporation—based on extensive interviews with numerous leading executives headquartered in Japan. The Cannata Report’s “Access Japan,” reported entirely from The Cannata Report ’s meetings from its upcoming spring 2018 visit to Japan, is sponsored solely by GreatAmerica Financial Services.

“This exclusive content and bonus issue underscores our editorial commitment to provide the most relevant intelligence for our audience by combining insight and analysis with in-depth reporting on the global strategies and future plans of the OEMs,” said Scott Cullen, editor-in-chief.

Added Frank G. Cannata, president and CEO, “In this upcoming OEM Japan tour, The Cannata Report’s 14th trip to Japan in 40 years, we will review new product developments and technologies from the viewpoint of the independent dealer channel of the future, an editorial theme we have explored throughout 2018. The insights and perspective we can provide through our previous investigative reports from Japan will prove invaluable for our audience.”

The Cannata Report’s management team—Frank G. Cannata, Cullen and CJ Cannata, EVP and publisher—will create content from the Japan tour that will be shared across all of its media platforms. In addition, The Cannata Report will publish content on its social media channels throughout the duration of the May 2018 tour of Japan to preview and supplement the comprehensive report scheduled for release in August 2018.

“It is fitting that our first ever bonus publication and related digital content will chronicle our upcoming visit to Japan and provide a deep global dive into the Japanese Big Six, a perspective that has distinguished The Cannata Report throughout its 30-year plus history,” said CJ Cannata, adding, “In GreatAmerica, we found the perfect partner for the customized integrated marketing program we created to support ‘Access Japan.’ We are thrilled to take this notable next step of our strategy to provide powerful connections like this to engage our advertising partners with our audience.”

In addition, The Cannata Report will prepare a comprehensive presentation outlining the key findings from its Japan reporting for six dealer groups, including Great America’s Dealer Council, other industry associations, and its clients.

Jennie Fisher, senior vice president and general manager of the office equipment group at GreatAmerica Financial Services agrees the trip will provide good insights to dealers and GreatAmerica is pleased to be part of it. “GreatAmerica is proud to sponsor The Cannata Report’s ‘Access Japan.’ This is a meaningful way for us to illustrate our commitment to the dealer channel and the exciting future that lies ahead by way of value brought to them from the OEMs.”
