Golf, Guinness and Oysters Partners With Markets Media



MAY 15, 2018,  The Golf, Guinness and Oyster Gathering (GGOG), a World Series charity golf tournament held in aid of The Iveagh Trust, has named Markets Media Group (MMG) as a global media partner for several 2018 GGOG World Series events. MMG will support GGOG by raising brand awareness for tour stops in Singapore, Hong Kong and Chicago.

GGOG combines philanthropy with exclusive networking and Irish hospitality, enabling attendees to better engage with clients and drive business development activities. The annual World Series charity event is played in aid of The Iveagh Trust, an organization that has offered affordable housing for Dubliners in need for over 120 years. The series is hosted at some of the most prestigious golf venues across the globe and attracts prominent financial and professional services industry attendees, as well as private citizens and Lord Iveagh, Fourth Earl of Iveagh, Trustee of The Iveagh Trust, and member of the Guinness Family.

“Since its inception, GGOG has sought to engage golfers and non-golfers alike by creating premium events that also make a measurable social impact,” said Grant Muskett, Owner, Golf, Guinness and Oyster Gathering. “We’re proud to welcome Markets Media Group as a global media partner and look forward to the support they will bring as we expand our successful World Series events to additional markets.”

“We attended GGOG New York last year and we were blown away by the quality of the event, the organization and the people who attended,” said David Griffiths, MMG Managing Director. “GGOG is a cut above the standard corporate-charity golf event, so it was a no-brainer for us to get involved to help support such a great day and a great cause. We look forward to working with GGOG to expand and refine the concept around the globe.”
