Acer Philippines made history when it threw the biggest indoor ball pit party on August 10. The giant tech and innovations company literally turned the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati City into a colorful, inflatable wonderland—almost filled with colorful and soft balls, while a small portion was designated as stage where invited music acts performed like rocker Basti Artadi and the band Kjwan.
The venue was filled by members of the press, bloggers, and mall guests, who willingly and gamely played in six activity stations, some of which gave away instant prizes to game winners.
The unique party served as the kick-off of the brand’s ‘Acer Day’ in the Philippines with the theme ‘Be cool everyday.’ To understand the significance of the event to Acer and its customers, here are five things we must know about it:
1. Acer Day will be an annual event from here on.
“Acer Day was conceptualized to continually refresh and breathe new life into the brand, as well as to boost the public’s awareness and knowledge about Acer products,” said Acer Philippines Sales and Marketing Director Sue Ong-Lim.
She also hinted that the event will be a celebration that the brand and its customers and followers can look forward to every year. “Consumers can trust that it will only get better from here,” Ong-Lim said.
2. Acer Day is a global celebration.
The event is Acer’s first ever global and biggest annual brand day event, which was launched on August 3. Acer Day was celebrated simultaneously in 14 countries where Acer has a strong presence—the Philippines, Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, India, Australia, and New Zealand.
All the Acer Day events held the same theme, an obvious effort of the brand to make a greater impact. All Acer websites (in each country) reflect it and adopt the uniformity of the activity.
3. The August 3 launch date was picked on purpose.
Here’s a trivial information about Acer Day. In a statement, Acer President of Pan Asia Pacific Region Andrew Hou said August 3 was chosen as launch date of the global event on purpose. He said that August 3 when taken numerically reads “eight-third,” which for him sounds like “Acer.”
Thus, in the coming years, August 3 will be designated as Acer Day globally. The brand intends to fill the day with new brand activations and events that will surprise and impress its customers.
4. The theme ‘Be Cool Everyday’ alludes to AeroBlade 3D fan.
The theme for the first and this year’s Acer Day focuses on AeroBlade 3D fan, a technology unique to Acer that utilizes the thinnest metal fan blade in the world.
AeroBlade is responsible for advanced aerodynamics as well as optimized airflow performance to the keep the system of Acer PC’s at low temperature even during prolonged usage.
5. Acer is giving away laptops.
Here’s the most exciting part. The fun never ends after the grand Acer Day celebration. Acer Philippines has launched a special Acer Day website, where everyone can participate in challenges to be posted daily to earn ‘cool points.’ Visit the site and be instantly guided on what to do next to participate in the activity (up until October 3, 2017).
