Last year we dove into a ball pit and played several fun games as Acer celebrated the very first #AcerDay at the Glorietta Activity Center.
This year, the global leader in computer hardware technologies, brought together three of the most popular artists of the country– Moira dela Torre, IV of Spades, and dance troupe the G-Force as it kicked off the “Play Music Together” themed celebration.
Introduced last year, Acer Day saw its beginnings in 14 countries across Pan-Asia Pacific. This year, the celebration grows as 20 countries in the region join in on the fun. Aside from the Philippines, Acer Day 2018 will be kicking off in Australia, Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, New Zealand, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.
In keeping with its global theme “Play Music Together”, Acer Philippines echoes the message that music is one of the most powerful forms of expression and communication. As a testament, the Acer Day Launch Event brought together Moira Dela Torre and IV of Spades, 2 artists that are making waves in the music industry today, for an unforgettable duet that’s sure to be one for the books. Of course, doubling down and making the music truly come alive was the G-Force dance troupe, who delivered a live show-stopping performance of the Acer Day dance to delight the crowd.
“Music has been around for decades, and yet it manages to stay youthful, trendy, and innovative,” shares Sue Ong-Lim, Sales and Marketing Director of Acer Philippines. “In a way, this mirrors how Acer regards technology, in that it should always be fresh, modern, and inventive in terms of its design and capabilities.”
The event-turned-concert show also saw the announcement of the many activities and promos Acer Philippines has in store to properly celebrate the leading tech brand’s Acer Day celebrations.
