The important question:
As Worldwide IT Partner to the Olympic Games, an opportunity to reconnect with their global market existed. But how could they use this to boost sales and maximize brand awareness?

The important solution:
Using high-end billboards, multiple online media channels and exclusive Olympic site sponsorship, Atos got major exposure.
