Acer keeps athletes connected at the London 2012 Olympic Games
Worldwide Olympic Partner Acer will help keep athletes connected with their friends and family at the London 2012 Olympic Games with the creation of four PC Lounges.
The PC Lounges will be located in the Olympic Villages and in the Main Press Centre for the media. Acer Internet Caf?s will be open 24 hours a day during the Games, and Acer?s onsite support staff and service technicians will provide customer support and resolve technical issues.
The design of the Acer Internet Lounges for athletes is inspired by the sustainable objectives of London 2012 and the theme is ?Acer Internet Garden?. The Acer Internet Garden will provide athletes with 180 fully-equipped stations with broadband internet access, communication and social networking environments, keeping them up-to-date with the things that matter the most and in touch with their friends and family.
In 2009, Acer became a Worldwide Olympic Partner for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games and the London 2012 Olympic Games. As a Worldwide Olympic Partner in the computing equipment category, Acer?s responsibility is to provide the PC infrastructure that supports the Games. The company has been actively working with the London 2012 Organising Committee (LOCOG) to ensure that the 2012 Olympic Games run faultlessly.
