Join "Mazda Open Day 2018"
On June 2 and 3, sunny weekend, "Mazda Open Day 2018" was held at the headquarters of Mazda Co., Ltd. Following the last year, we set up a booth along the“Monozukuri ROAD”, organized mainly by local suppliers, an arcade featuring craftmanship and manufacturing, where visitors can enjoy exhibition and workshop.
The workshop we offered was creating can badges and key holders in order to introduce about stamping work. Visitors made their original ones with pictures drawn by theirself. Lots of family gathered to our booth and enjoyed monozukuri from adults to kids. We also gave out balloons, popular for kids, and paper fans we made for first time.
Our booth ended in great success with more visitors than last year. It was a good opportunity to engage with the people around as a supplier who marks history and creates a brand with Mazda .
We appreciated that so many visitors had a good time with us.
