Innovative Initiatives

JVCKENWOOD Solution Fair (Customers, business partners)

The JVCKENWOOD Group holds the JVCKENWOOD Solutions Fair and other events as opportunities to communicate with customers and business partners. We introduced solutions that solve various issues for customers, utilizing video, audio, and wireless technologies that the JVCKENWOOD Group specializes in.

In fiscal 2020, we postponed the implementation to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We will continue to provide our customers and suppliers with direct explanations of our products and technologies and provide them with a variety of opportunities to communicate with them.

Constructive dialogue with shareholders

JVCKENWOOD aims to achieve sustainable growth and enhance corporate value over the medium to long term by having the top management actively in constructive dialogue (engagement) with investors and shareholders. Through such dialogue, JVCKENWOOD conveys its initiatives to those stakeholders to gain their understanding, and works to reflect their opinions and needs in the management strategy and business plan.
