As part of its ongoing programme of incentives for the dealers and resellers, Channel Telecom took a group of channel partners on an expenses-paid prestige trip to watch the US Masters played at the Augusta National golf club in Georgia, USA. One of the top four golfing ‘majors’ the Masters is considered by many to be the premier event in professional golf.
Channel Telecom partners were treated to business class flights; full hospitality day for the preview par three tournament; Magnolia Hospitality for the opening day at the Masters; and luxury hotel accommodation. The Channel Telecom group then travelled to Greensboro, Georgia, for three days playing on the five championship golf courses in the area and staying at Ritz Carlton on Lake Oconee. Guests on the incentive trip included John Bradbury, Managing Director of Company Telecom which won Overall Partner of the Year in the Channel Telecom Awards.
Commenting on the Masters incentive trip, Clifford Norton, Managing Director of Channel Telecom said, “This was truly the trip of a lifetime for all golf and sports fans. We were treated to a fantastic spectacle at the Augusta National. The atmosphere and the quality of golf were terrific. We were then able to get onto the fairways on some superb courses around Greensboro. I’ve already had channel partners calling to ask what they need to do to get on next year’s trip. This trip sums up what Channel Telecom is all about – keeping our partners happy, putting money in everyone’s pockets and having fun with it!”
