The World Corporate Golf Challenge (WCGC) have announced today that they will be partnering with the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). The agreement will see ICC become an Official Global Partner of the WGCG, the worlds largest and longest standing amateur corporate golf event.
Through the global partnership, WCGC will deliver ICC global brand exposure through the extensive media coverage promoting events in over 40 countries around the world and the flagship World Final. The tournament will also enable ICC to act locally via it’s National Committees and Chambers to encourage new and existing business relationships.
John Danilovich, Secretary General, ICC commented “The World Corporate Golf Challenge is the most established B2B golf tournament around the world and ICC is the largest business organisation around the world so I am confident both parties will be successful in working together to achieve our strategic global objectives with mutual benefit.”
ICC will look to support WCGC’s official licensed partners in each territory by promoting the event through their National Committees and Chambers and globally via its existing business relationships with leading brands and blue chip companies.
Oliver Dury, WCGC Business Development Director said “We are delighted ICC is joining WCGC as an Official Global Partner. There is no doubt ICC’s participation will help the event reach new heights, accelerate our plans for growth in key territories and solidify our position as the leading corporate golf tournament in the world.”
ICC, a world network of national committees
The ICC is the largest, most representative business organisation in the world. Its hundreds of thousands of member companies in over 180 countries have interests spanning every sector of private enterprise. ICC has three main activities: rule setting, dispute resolution, and policy advocacy. Because its member companies and associations are themselves engaged in international business, ICC has unrivalled authority in making rules that govern the conduct of business across borders. Although these rules are voluntary, they are observed in countless thousands of transactions every day and have become part of international trade.
A world network of national committees in over 90 countries advocates business priorities at national and regional level. More than 2,000 experts drawn from ICC’s member companies feed their knowledge and experience into crafting the ICC stance on specific business issues. ICC keeps the United Nations, the World Trade Organisation, and many other intergovernmental bodies, both international and regional, in touch with the views of international business. ICC was the first organization granted general consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council.
