Last weekend Acer held a string of events in Taipei to celebrate its 40thanniversary, which included performances, a forum, and a fun-filled “Acer Family Day” attended by Acer’s five founders (pictured above with CEO Jason Chen).
On Friday, September 23, under a beautiful autumn sky, Acer hosted an evening of performances at Taipei’s Liberty Square. The event saw the attendance of over 10,000 people, including Acer’s management team, alumni, partners, suppliers, and members of the general public. The audience was treated to a number of performances, including one by Taiwan’s world-renowned Cloud Gate Dance Theater.
In between performances, a charity auction took place where many of Acer’s partners and suppliers pledged funds for the purchase and donation of units of Acer CloudProfessor to the “Program the World” initiative, a Taiwan-based program that works to give underprivileged children new opportunities through technology and education.
On the following day, Saturday, September 24, Acer held a forum where Stan Shih, Honorary Chairman, George Huang, Chairman and Jason Chen, President & CEO discussed the future development of Taiwan and the ICT industry with experts from various fields. To cap off the festivities, a special 40th anniversary “Acer Family Day” was held for Acer’s Taiwan employees at Liberty Square, where they enjoyed food, fun and performances.
