This will allow for a quicker, more cost-effective turnaround of marketing collaterals and materials during events held at the Singapore Sports Hub.

Ltd. "Through the deployment of the Canon Print Hub, we are committed to helping the Sports Hub achieve its ambition of being the premier destination for sports, leisure and entertainment enthusiasts.
