The fruitful meetings with over 50 partners from more than 10 territories shows the mutual commitment between Acer, our major retailers, distributors, service providers and international partners, and indicates that Acer is strongly positioned for an even better year in 2020. The overall consensus is that our product range, including Predator, ConceptD, Monitors and our Industry leading “thin and light” collection will provide many opportunities for growth next year.”
