Saturday's AdvoCare Classic is the first game in a season-long sponsorship with IMG, and Hotels.com. This is Hotels.com way of jumping right in to join the action with the season opener. On September 2, 2017, football powerhouses No. 9 ranked, University of Michigan Wolverines and the No. 16 ranked, University of Florida Gators will face off at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX.
Pepper - the Winning Experience
Pepper®, the humanoid robot from SoftBank Robotics, will be joining Hotels.com at AT&T Stadium to surprise and delight Michigan and Florida fans. Hotels.com is harnessing the power of robotics by leveraging the new Pepper Promoter application. Pepper will bring an engaging and interactive experience to the fan zone by promoting Hotels.com® Rewards and deals, highlight the newest Hotels.com game day commercial and encourage fans to enter into a sweepstakes. At the end of the interaction, fans can pose with Pepper for a selfie and then tag their team for a fresh social experience. Pepper is being used worldwide for the fields of retail, financial services, healthcare, travel, and hospitality. Formerly Aldebaran Robotics, SBRA's sister offices remain in Europe, Japan and China under the new SoftBank Robotics Group.
