Acer Philippines and Samsonite partner for its Back-to-School Promo

In lieu of Back-To-School Season, Acer Philippines, a leading tech and innovations company, has collaborated with American luggage and travel bag manufacturer, Samsonite, to celebrate millennial and their thirst for adventure and new experiences. Dubbed as #CarryOn, this latest promo encourages youth empowerment to achieve their dreams and goals.

Launched last May 15 at the Mega Fashion Hall in SM Megamall, "#CarryOn" aspires youth to keep on going through travelling and exploring different destinations that will inspire to do well, whether in school or in their professions. 

“If there’s one thing we’ve learned about millennial, it’s that they are very passionate individuals who are unstoppable if they are truly motivated,” shares Sue Ong-Lim, Acer Philippines’ Sales and Marketing Director. “Travel is, without a doubt, one of their strongest motivations. This is why we’ve partnered with Samsonite, a household name when it comes to travelling, to help us propel this cause forward. Hand in hand, we are hopeful that we will be able to not only motivate our millennials, but also reward them for their hard work by fueling their wanderlust.”

Acer Philippines’ back-to-school event features travel-inspired activities, where guests filled out a passport by completing various tasks. Each station has the latest Acer laptops and gadgets including the Avengers: Infinity War” Special Notebooks that can guests can check out for review. And to top it all, the event also debut Acer Philippines' #CarryOn video, which shows what the back-to-school campaign is all about. Directed by Ms. Irene Villamor, known for her works in Camp Sawi and Meet Me In St. Gallen, the film depicts how the youth turn to travelling as a way to cope and re-energize in the face of the stresses of their daily lives. 


“Travel inspires a different form of education – it makes you learn about new environments, exposes you to different cultures, and gives you a clearer view of the world,” shares Ciely Buenviaje, Country Head of Samsonite Philippines. “Samsonite could not be happier to be partnering with Acer in promoting such a holistic growth for the millennial generation.”

The Acer Philippines #CarryOn Back-to-School Promo will run until June 30, 2018, during which every purchase of qualified Acer and Predator laptops, Acer projectors, and Acer desktop will come with free Samsonite luggage.
