Global event takes place at Carton House this week
Ion Solutions, the Irish-owned specialist provider of audio-visual solutions to companies nationwide and across the world, are working with the Golfing Union of Ireland and the Irish Ladies Golfing Union to provide services and technology to the World Amateur Team Championships, which takes place at Carton House, Maynooth, from Wednesday August 29 to Saturday September 8 2018.
Conducted by the International Golf Federation, which comprises the national governing bodies of golf in more than 125 countries, the World Amateur Team Championships are a biennial international amateur golf competition rotated among three geographic zones of the world: Asia-Pacific, American and European-African.
This is the first time that the World Amateur Team Championships has been held in Ireland and the first in six years that the event takes place in Europe. The 2018 event is being held in Carton House, with competitors staying in the Athlete’s Village in the grounds of Maynooth University.
Ion Solutions has been tasked with ensuring that every part of the Championships enjoys state of the art technology and connectivity. Four 5mm Absen X5 outdoor LED screens will be dotted at key vantage points throughout the golf course, with a five-metre-wide Absen X5 mobile LED trailer screen displaying the leaderboard at the 18th hole. Weather and event updates will be sent to all screens.
Additionally, Ion Solutions are providing the stage lighting and audio-visual equipment for the opening and closing ceremonies which will take place in the beautiful grounds of historic Carton House and a Gala Awards dinner which will be held in Maynooth University on Saturday, September 1.
Graham Lowen, Director of Ion Solutions, says: “At Ion Solutions, we work with a range of pioneering global brands, which means we are in a position to deliver top class, reliable technology to our clients. We’re delighted to work with the Golfing Union of Ireland and the Irish Ladies Golfing Union to provide a customised solution for the World Amateur Team Championships at the Carton House. The team have put a lot of hard work and dedication into this project and we are thrilled to be involved. We are very much looking forward to working with the Golfing Union in Ireland and the Irish Ladies Golfing Union on this project.”
Alan Kelly, Communications Manager at the Golfing Union of Ireland, says: “Ion Solutions have demonstrated to us in the past their technical capabilities in delivering smart solutions both on and off the golf course. It made absolute sense to us to involve them in this project given the scale of the event. From concept to design and implementation, the team at Ion Solutions leave nothing to chance and it’s their commitment to achieving the best possible results for everyone involved that makes them the standout choice as our technical partner.”
