International Free Zone Authority (IFZA) announces its support for the Battle of the Business Councils Golf Day 2021 as key event sponsor. The British Business Group welcomes IFZA in their top tier line-up for this annual event in collaboration with AmCham Dubai (American Business Council), Canadian Business Council of Dubai and Northern Emirates, Australian Business Council Dubai and Irish Business Network Dubai. The decision to support the event came after a successful golf drive competition IFZA has recently organized for partners that demonstrated the power shared experiences around sport can bring in building partnerships.

This corporate tournament, to be held on October 7, will see players enjoy an 18-hole round at the breathtaking Jumeirah Golf Estates, Earth Course with morning and afternoon shotguns from 8am. The event will also feature prizes, activations across the course and an unparalleled opportunity to network with representatives from all the business groups.

The Battle of the Business Councils Golf Day has annually been regarded as one of the groups’ most highly anticipated events that demonstrate solidarity. This 2021 edition is particularly significant as it highlights the region’s international business communities’ tenacity and interest to get “back to business.”

“It is our purpose and our passion at IFZA Dubai to form collaborative relationships with people who share our mindset of excellence and success. The Battle of the Business Councils Golf Day is a prime example of this mindset, as it reflects how Dubai and the UAE attract influencers from the international business community to experience its benefits beyond business. We look forward to meeting the members of the councils on that day and explore ways on how we can work together to – as we say at IFZA – Dare to Do it Differently,” says Martin G. Pedersen, Chairman of IFZA Dubai.

“This event is highly anticipated across the international business community as an opportunity to bring a huge variety of sectors and disciplines together united by golf and a desire to further widen their professional network. We are delighted that IFZA decided to align its powerful brand with this flagship event and I am confident that IFZA’s planned activity will really enhance the golfers’ experience on the day,” says John Martin St. Valery, Chairman, British Business Group, Dubai and Northern Emirates.

Apart from the key event sponsorship, IFZA will be hosting a lounge for post-competition networking.
