As part of its extensive support of the U.S. Olympic Team, Procter & Gamble hosted U.S. Olympic athletes and their families in Vancouver at the P&G Family Home, which provided Team USA with a place to come together in an inviting and comfortable environment for the duration of the Olympic Winter Games.

The P&G Family Home, which was open between Feb. 11-28, provided 24/7 coverage of the Olympic Winter Games in special viewing lounges as well as an internet café, complimentary food and drink, a Pampers play area for toddlers and a P&G Beauty & Grooming Salon and Spa.

P&G designed the spaces to be sleek, cool and comforting while incorporating branding into the furnishings and décor—as seen on pillows inside lounge areas—and extensive product placement.
