Japan Musical Instruments Association General Affairs Committee Approves A Substitute Plan for Musical Instruments Fair Japan 2020
Japan Musical Instruments Association held the 2nd General Affairs Committee meeting online on July 7 with participation of 13 members.
Masato Oshiki, president of the Committee asked the members to talk about music promotional plans in place of Musical Instruments Fair Japan 2020 cancelled on July 1. He said “Music products business stalled for 3 months. Sales we lost in the period have not recovered yet. On the other hand, it is great that we had strong demands for some types of products generated during the lock down. Considerable number of music makers including beginners confirmed and found value and pleasure of playing music. We are still exposed to enormous social and financial pressure, but also feel this is an opportunity to promote music and the benefit of music making for the industry as a whole.”
The Committee agreed to hold an online musical event offering products presentations, seminars and clinics encouraging general consumer to take part in November or December.
