About Hitachi and Christmas on A Great Street 2020

Main arch at night Hitachi's global message this year – “Hitachi Social Innovation is POWERING GOOD” – illustrates our desire to brighten up the world and make it a better place. The sponsorship of Christmas on A Great Street is truly an echo of our social values and this is why we look forward to this meaningful and exciting event this year!

Themed “Love This Christmas”, especially during the COVID-19 situation, this year's light-up reminds us that no physical distance should stop anyone from showering love to those they care about. Hitachi hopes that this event can help to boost the spirits and confidence of the people, and that we can continue our pursuit of powering good for years to come.

History

Since its humble beginnings, Christmas on A Great Street has been a signature event on Asia's most famous shopping destination. For 30 years, Hitachi has continually brought the year-end festivities to life since becoming the main sponsor of Christmas on A Great Street in 1991. While many things have changed through the years, one thing remains constant – Hitachi's commitment to contributing to Singapore's community.
