Marubeni Citizen commemorated its 30th anniversary in the U.S. with a formal, private celebration at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago last evening. Attendees, who consisted of executives, key former employees, dealers and customers, were treated to a viewing of beluga whales, dolphins, and cocktails on the terrace with the beautiful Chicago skyline as the backdrop. This was all followed by an elegant dinner in front of the huge, exotic fish tank. A diver wearing a Marubeni Citizen 30th anniversary t-shirt fed the fish in the tank. Dinner was followed by a cordials and dessert hour.

The reception entertainment was provided by a local trio who played hit music on their classical string instruments. Attendees were treated like family all evening, and upon departing the event, each person was presented a violin-shaped clock that plays 30 melodies and songs. 

As if this magnificent party at the Shedd wasn't enough, the company sent everyone home on a trolley that gave attendees a tour of the beautiful city at night.
