Background Notes:
The International Chamber of Commerce is a unique global business organization. ICC is – and has been throughout its long existence – a steadfast rallying point for those who believe, like their founders, that strengthening commercial ties among nations is not only good for business but good for global living standards and good for peace.

To that end, ICC provides a forum for businesses and other organizations to examine and better comprehend the nature and significance of the major shifts taking place in the world economy. They also offer an influential and respected channel for supplying business leadership to help governments manage those shifts in a collaborative manner for the benefit of the world economy as a whole.

ICC partners with World Corporate Golf Challenge for yearly golf tournament

The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has become the Official Global Partner of the World Corporate Golf Challenge (WCGC), the largest and longest running corporate amateur golf event. The new venture is set to expand international participation, branding and media attention, making the event the “must-play” golf tournament of the year for business executives around the globe.

ICC Secretary General John Danilovich said: “This exciting partnership is not only a union between two respected organizations, but also a first-rate opportunity to deliver value for our members and our global network of ICC national committees in over 90 countries.”

An established event, held consecutively for 20 years, WCGC now plans to launch new tournaments in emerging and established markets across every continent to increase the number of business executives taking part worldwide. The ambition is to host events in over 60 countries and recruit more than 40,000 high level executives, representing approximately 25,000 companies year on year.

Traditionally the tournament has appealed to senior business executives but Jose Guerra, WCGC Chairman, believes the future may see a shift in the players’ demographic. “By the very nature of the event, until now senior executives have predominantly participated in the competition but our efforts now are focused on expanding participation to C-Suite management, business owners and entrepreneurs. Our goal is to make WCGC the “Who’s Who” of executive sporting events,” he said.

With the size, scope and profile of the tournament set to reach new heights, the event will intensify interest from business media and multiply corporate sponsorship investment from multinational and blue chip companies across multiple industry sectors.

Oliver Dury, WCGC’s Business Development Director said: “The combination of ICC’s global executive membership and WCGS’s world-class event and media partners, will accelerate the event and take it to another level.”

The 2015 World Corporate Golf Challenge Final will take place in Cascais, Portugal at Oitavos Five Star Hotel and world-class Oitavos Dunes Golf Course, 30 June – 5th July 2015.
