February 12, 2014. 12.02.2014. MegaFon's MegaFaces Pavilion was opened in the Olympic park on the day the opening ceremony was held in Sochi. Volunteers from Russia, Japan, and Côte d'Ivoire became the first faces of the Olympics. Their large-scale 3D portraits were featured on the facade of the pavilion, the company's press service reports.

On February 7, the long-awaited opening of MegaFon's innovative pavilion took place at the Olympic park. The enormous portraits on the facades aroused great interest in the visitors to the games, including Minister for Mass Communications Nikolai Nikiforov, Coordination Committee President Dmitri Chernyshenko, and MegaFon Director-General Ivan Tavrin as well as sports stars and show business celebrities, all of whom got 'scanned' and could see their 6m x 8m big faces on the snow-white facade of the MegaFon pavilion.

However, the volunteers, on whom the success of the Olympics actually depends a lot, were chosen as the first 'faces of the Olympics'. Sochi gathered together volunteers from many different countries, they all went through a serious selection process, and it is their focus on the visitors, their help and sincere smiles that make the visitors' stay at the Olympics so pleasant and comfortable. Kanae from Japan is a real fan of the Russian figure-skaters; she even learned Russian to be able to talk to her idol. Kanae, Olivier from Côte d'Ivoire, and a Russian volunteer Alexei were the first visitors to the Olympic park to get 'scanned' at MegaFon pavilion.
