Nobutaka Ide, President & CEO, Wacom

We relocated our European headquarters from Krefeld to Düsseldorf in July 2016 to give us better access to partners and young talent and to be closer to the creative and digital scene. As the digital city of Düsseldorf has such a lively artistic, agency and fashion scene and hosts a variety of related business activities, it is the ideal location for us to boost our success through recruiting young talent and exchanging ideas with other specialists.
