ACER Philippines kicked off its annual Acer Day celebration, July 20, 2018, at the Glorietta Palm Drive Activity Center, Makati City, Philippines.
“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.”
Themed “Play Music Together”, the launch event doubled as a concert and dance show featuring Moira de la Torre and IV of Spades, both youth music icons of today, as well as renowned dance troupe the G-Force.
Acer started the “Acer Day” in 2017, with 14 other countries in the 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.
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.
