Online PR News – 25-July-2009 – – The 2009 British Open Championship held up to its 138 years of world-class tradition, resulting in one of the most exciting finishes in Open history and a treat THG clients will never forget, says THG General Manager Paul Meakins.
THG clients experienced not only the worlds top golfers battle against the host Turnberry course, they saw 59-year-old Tom Watson shoot a remarkable 65 during the first round and hold his lead for a majority of the tournament. Watson lost to Stewart Cink in a Sunday playoff.
The premier THG hospitality resulted in commitments from a majority of attending clients to sign up for next year’s 2010 British Open to be held back at St. Andrews Golf Club. Reviewing the large number of corporations who attended from around the world is a sign that now more than ever, many companies are looking globally to achieve their business goals, Meakins says.
“This is a trend we expect to continue,” Meakins adds. “Multi-national companies are putting more emphasis on growth and they’re seeking out global events like the British Open to provide opportunities to build relationships and new business.”
“THG’s network of 350 covered events addresses the global needs of today’s business leaders providing executive hospitality to top-tier events in multiple countries,” adds THG CEO Jon Stromberg.
As seen annually during this major event, THG clients at the 2009 British Open took advantage of the company’s facilities and enjoyed five-star catering service in between rounds of play to network with colleagues and prospects, Meakins says.
