In September this year, one of the world’s largest global sporting events, with an estimated TV audience of 600m across 183 countries, will take place at Gleneagles: Perth and Kinross will be home to The 2014 Ryder Cup.
Perth & Kinross Council and the organisers of the event, Ryder Cup Europe, are keen to ensure that local businesses maximise the benefits from an area hosting such an internationally significant event. The Council has organised business briefings to help to keep them informed:
Sessions at 8am and 9am, 11 February 2014, Upstairs Lounge, Auchterarder Golf Club, Orchil Road, Auchterarder
Sessions at 8am and 9am, 12 February 2014, Centenary Suite, McDiarmid Park, Perth
Councillor Ian Miller, Leader of the Council, said: “Representatives from the Council’s Business Growth team and VisitScotland will join the briefings to explain how we are supporting businesses. Ryder Cup Europe representatives will share information about the event itself, and their experience of business involvements in previous Ryder Cup competitions. We want as many local business as possible to be able to take part and benefit from the event.”
Antonia Beggs, Operations Director, Ryder Cup Europe, said: “There are a wide range of business opportunities at The 2014 Ryder Cup. We want to ensure that local businesses are in the best possible place to take advantage of these. This is a global event, but it is every bit as important to us that local businesses and the local community feel the positive side of welcoming one of the world’s premier sporting events.”
