Company uses opportunity to gauge public opinion and needs
The Japanese economy had entered a new growth period in the latter half of the 1960s. Panasonic made great strides in every area, but especially in terms of technological
development. The company had marked its 50th anniversary by developing new technologies and innovative new products, many at the leading edge of international technology.
The company felt that consumer input about these pioneering projects would be essential to convert them from laboratory demonstrations into practical product and system applications. So the company opened the Hall of Science and Technology Museum in April 1989 in the western building of the Central Research Laboratories, and in September sponsored the first Panasonic's Technological Exhibition In Tokyo.
With a focus on electronics, the five-day event had exhibits of raw materials, components, equipment and systems in 56 booths, including a number of live demonstrations. The exhibition was visited by more than 15,000 people, including academics, government officiate, researchers from major industries, journalists and prominent individuals.
The most popular exhibits were a facsimile machine for home use, a futuristic wall-mounted TV with an electroluminescent display, PCM piezoelectric devices and MPS diodes.
Several technology exhibitions were held in subsequent years. These helped to enhance public awareness of Panasonic as a high-technology company. In 1981, the company sponsored a well-received technology exhibition in Chicago under the theme of "Stronger Friendship through Electronics."
