Canon back to the world Championships

Canon, a world-leader in imaging and information technology solutions has confirmed its continued support as the official imaging supplier to the UCI Track Cycling World Championships in Manchester 26th to 30th March 2008.

Canon’s regional Business Centre based in the North East is supplying a range of high-end mono and colour printing equipment to the event.  It is imperative to the race that a high level of service and reliability is provided and the company’s on-site technical support guarantee that all race results of the high-speed, high-drama races are captured, distributed and viewed by race organisers and the general public.

“Increasing our brand profile and contributing to the communities in which we operate are both important factors when it comes to deciding how to plan our sponsorship activities” said Andy Vickers, Managing Director, Canon UK and Ireland: “Canon globally supports high profile sports events and cycling fits perfectly with our global philosophy of ‘Kyosei’ – living and working together for the common good  and we look forward to being back at the World Championships.”

Event organiser Alan Rushton believes that Canon is an important partner in the task of running a world class event: “The whole world will be watching this event and it’s crucial that we have the best support and equipment and Canon gives us both.”

Canon has a long history of high profile sports sponsorships stretching back over 30 years and it has selected to continue its support for the spectacular sport of track cycling. It has already supported four UCI Track Cycling World Cups in the UK.

Tickets are still on sale for what will be the biggest and toughest event on the Track Calendar for 2008. The five day event programme is packed with action right from day one on Wednesday 26th March. The Great Britain team will be defending the seven world crowns they won in Palma, Mallorca last year. Tickets for Saturday  29th March have already sold out.
