Friday August 3,2012 : PADDY POKER TO SPONSOR RUGBY EXPO
Third time gambling group has anted up for rugger event
For the third year running online and land gambling group Paddy Power has agreed to sponsor the UK Rugby Expo in October by providing support for the early bird delegate ticketing scheme.
Event director Jonathan Wilson says the early bird bet has always proved very popular with delegates and is a great way to engage with attendees.
"With details of the bet soon to be announced, we’ll wait and see who’ll be responsible for winning our delegates their money back this year!” he said.
Any delegates purchasing their tickets before 17.00 on Friday October 5th will have a chance to win back their delegate fees if the bet comes off.
David Lyons, associate director at Airton Risk Management, Paddy Power plc said the expo brings together many of the sport’s key decision makers and influential figures at Twickenham.
Paddy Power will also be involved in the conference programme at this year’s event, taking part in a sponsorship workshop alongside fellow executives from some of rugby’s most prominent brands.
