VIP Services for the 2016 Ryder Cup

The 2016 Ryder Cup men’s golf tournament, held at Hazeltine National Golf Club, was a massive undertaking. The six-day event spanned multiple golf courses and off-site venues, featured golf legends, celebrities and top-tier sponsors.

  • Selected off-site venues with PGA hosts on behalf of Ryder Cup USA.
  • Arranged décor, floral, furniture, linens and lighting for three off-site events and the USA & Europe Welcome Dinner.
  • Facilitated overall event and transportation logistics for our clients in attendance.
  • Built customized registration websites and event mobile apps for numerous companies and sponsors in attendance.
  • Managed food & beverage, housing and information desks for corporate sponsors in attendance.
