Update to the 2018 ISA Press Release Concerning a False Posting by the German Suzuki Association (DSG).

The ISA has noted the continued posting of a misleading message on the website of the DSG, an organization not a part of the ESA, the ISA nor authorized to use the SUZUKI name. This post asserting that the ISA does not own the mark SUZUKI is untrue. It is a misrepresentation of fact and poses a liability issue to anyone following that course of action.

In fact, the ISA continues to own registrations for SUZUKI and other SUZUKI marks throughout the world, including Germany. Any assertion to the contrary is inaccurate.

The DSG bases its claims on a decision in a court document from November 2014. Please read the following link for a complete and accurate transcript of the document in question, and not the altered and redacted version as posted by the DSG.

The ISA has written to the administration of the DSG repeatedly requesting this post be deleted. The DSG has responded that the post is no longer on its site. However, the post clearly does remain on the DSG site despite those assurances. ISA will continue to monitor this misrepresentation of its protection of the SUZUKI trademark in the interest of and obligations to all members of the world-wide Suzuki community.

1st Convención Suzuki de las Américas

1st Convención Suzuki de las Américas

Inspired by the Biennial Conferences of the SAA, the Suzuki World Conventions, the conventions in Peru and Mexico, and hundreds of institutes and festivals throughout the Americas, we are pleased to invite you to the 1st Suzuki Convention of the Americas, from May 1st to May 5th, 2019 in Cancun, Mexico.

The Convention will be hosted by the Mexican Suzuki Association and will be assisted by other Suzuki associations of Latin America. The Suzuki Association of the Americas will also play a key role in planning this international event.

The city of Cancun has been chosen for many reasons: it has the necessary infrastructure to hold international conventions in a safe environment; it is geographically convenient being close to the center between North America and South America; there are direct international flights to and from the big cities of North and South America, and the prices are relatively affordable; along with its modern facilities it is home of a very important Mayan historic heritage, as well as flora, fauna and marine landscapes that are among the most beautiful in the world.

We have the responsibility to be agents of peace and understanding through the music of our children. Through our Suzuki communities we hope to tear down barriers, and create a single learning community, aspiring to a closer, more integrated world. Let’s embrace Dr. Suzuki’s ideals, let’s dream together, come help us change the world. We are waiting for you in Cancun!
