Back for the second year running, Acer Day 2018 brings special deals, prizes and flash promos to Malaysian consumers. Acer also launched a trio of new devices namely the Predator Helios 300 Special Edition gaming notebook, ultralight Swift 7 notebook and the superthin Switch 7 Black Edition 2-in-1 convertible notebook.
The annual Acer Day kicked off with a roadshow at the Centre Court, Mid Valley Megamall. Members of the media, guests, visitors and fans were treated to exclusive performances by all-girl pop group Amoi Amoi and FS (Fuying & Sam).
The inaugural Acer Day launched last year across the region and generated more than seven million clicks across social media platforms, and over 2,500,000 pageviews on the microsite. The celebration is held in 20 countries across Pan-Asia, including Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
This year’s theme “Play Music Together” draws inspiration form the belief that music the universal language that unites, transcending borders and race.
