P&G unveils branded services for Olympians

P&G has unveiled a range of branded services on offer to the families of Olympians visiting London during the Games.

The FMCG giant’s “Family Home” in central London has been developed to create a “home away from home” for athletes and their families, according to a statement, by offering them a “place to relax and unwind”.

Guests will be able to use services such as “The Ariel Express Laundry Service”, “The Pampers Play Village” and “P&G Beauty Express Counter”.

London 2012 is P&G’s first summer Olympic Games since becoming a worldwide partner of the International Olympic Committee in 2010. A series of wide-ranging campaigns have launched under the “thank you Mom” banner this year to exploit local and global interest in the Games.

Speaking at a press conference to announce the opening of the venue, P&G’s global brand building officer Marc Pritchard, said its Olympic sponsorship’s focus on families best represented its product portfolio.

“We don’t make sports equipment, we make Tide, Pampers and Ariel. P&G may seem to have little to do with the Olympics but behind each athlete is an amazing mum and helping mums is what we do best”
