London Sponsors Happy with Olympic Preparations

Sponsors of the London 2012 Olympics have welcomed the strong progress being made in preparations for the Games.

Acer is one of sponsors which is ready to grace the gala with its world-class technology.

The company and the London Organizing Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) recently announced the signing of a computing equipment supply agreement, which details the delivery of the core computing equipment infrastructure that will be used to support the Games in 2012.

Acer and LOCOG will work to deliver the critical computing equipment infrastructure at an impressive scale.

The global PC vendor signed an agreement with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to join the Olympic Movement as a worldwide partner in 2009.

As per the agreement, which began in 2009, Acer partnered the Olympic Movement in the official computing equipment product category for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver and also for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport said it was great to have such strong support from worldwide sponsors.

"It is really great that so many British and international companies are doing so much to support London's Olympic and Paralympic Games," he said.

"As well as showing real commitment to the Games, the sponsors are helping to boost the number of people playing sport, which will be a lasting legacy from London 2012."
