JapanNYC Welcomes Bloomberg and The Wall Street Journal
Carnegie Hall has partnered with two of the world's most powerful media outlets—Bloomberg and The Wall Street Journal—to present a trio of panel discussions that address many aspects of contemporary Japanese culture.
On March 14, Innovating and Profiting in Contemporary Japan explores the idea that Japan's economic setbacks haven't stifled opportunities for smart companies to thrive. Join a discussion with Norman Pearlstine, Chief Content Officer, Bloomberg LP; and Chairman, Bloomberg Businessweek, as he speaks with leaders from Gilt Groupe, Dentsu, and other organizations about how they're profiting in a challenging but lucrative environment.
On March 31, From Race Cars to Rice Wine: Inside Japanese Style with WSJ Weekend features leading Wall Street Journal columnists in a two-part discussion about Japanese style. Dan Neil explores automotive and industrial design in Japan and its connection to Japanese aesthetics and culture, old and new. Lettie Teague and Rick Smith, proprietor of New York City's only all-sake store, engage in a lively discussion about the parallels between great wine and great sake with a sake-tasting to follow.
Finally, on April 1, Talking Tech with The Wall Street Journal is a candid conversation between Walt Mossberg and Sir Howard Stringer—Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President, Sony Corporation—discussing where consumer technology is heading—the smartphone explosion, the rise of e-readers and tablets, and the transformation of TV technology and programming. They will also address how the Japanese and the US technology markets differ, as well as what they may have in common.
