Schweppes to continue as GMA’s Major Partner

POSTED ON April 5, 2019 @ 12:03 pm

GMA and Schweppes are thrilled to announce an extension of its outstanding relationship for a further two years.  Schweppes will maintain their position as GMA’s Major Partner, with the agreement aligning with the new GMA management model.

Schweppes has been a long term and significant supporter to GMA for many years, including supporting all five state GMA bodies, as well as GMA national.  Under the new agreement, Schweppes and GMA have entered into a single agreement, which will see Schweppes become the major partner of GMA nationally, as well as maintain their presenting partner status for the 2019 GMA National Conference.

National Sales Manager – Daniel Christie, who is well known with GMA members said “over the many years we have maintained a very solid and rewarding relationship – one that Schweppes values and regards very highly. Through this partnership, we have been able to support and complement each other with the main aim of growing this great game”.

“This new agreement aligns to our strategic drive to broaden our overall presence in the market and to showcase our ongoing commitment to golf in Australia.  We look forward to continuing our strong presence at state-based GMA activities across Australia, as well as the upcoming 2019 GMA National Conference, which will be an outstanding event for GMA members” said Mr Christie.

GMA Executive Officer, Jim Cail, indicated “the GMA and Schweppes relationship is synonymous within the golfing industry and has been the backbone of GMA’s continued evolution as an organisation.  Schweppes’ involvement within GMA over many years has seen GMA members receive opportunities many may not have experienced without the support of Schweppes”.

“Further to this, without the support of Schweppes, and in particular Daniel and John Halliwell, who are brilliant to work with, the new GMA management model would have been very difficult to achieve.  As such, GMA is extremely grateful for Schweppes’ vision and continued commitment to the development and health and wellbeing of GMA members” said Mr Cail.

In typical Schweppes fashion, Daniel, John and the rest of the team are once again looking to find ways to support and provide opportunities to GMA members.  As such, as part of this announcement please find attached an exclusive offer to GMA members regarding the ability to pre-purchase President Cup tickets to this year’s event in Melbourne in December.
