Lindt Lindor & the Sony Ericsson Open

Lindt Lindor Truffles is the proud sponsor of the 2011 Sony Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne, Florida where Lindt global ambassador Roger Federer will be among other tennis greats to compete for the prestigious title. From March 21 to April 3rd, tournament attendees can visit the Lindt Lindor Dream center inside the main gate. Fans will have the opportunity to sample Lindt’s iconic Lindor truffles, learn from the virtual Lindt Master Chocolatier and have their picture taken with a life-size replica of Roger Federer.

During the event, Lindt will be hosting an in-stadium texting promotion which will give fans the chance to win a seat upgrade. If you’re planning on attending the event, keep an eye out for the giant Lindor truffles to see the fantastic seats available to win!

    At the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami on March 28, the Lindt booth was taking pictures of fans with a Roger Federer cutout. I was given a Lindt business and I expected to be able to find my picture onine. No such luck. Are those pictures online?
