Despite the record-breaking rainfall in North Texas, the 2015 AT&T Byron Nelson drew thousands of golf lovers to the TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas Golf Course in Irving, Texas, for the four-day tournament last week. Spectators were eager to enjoy some beautiful weather (even though the sun only came out on Thursday and Sunday), see the classic "red pant guys" from the Salesmanship Club of Dallas and watch their favorite golfers, including 2015 Master's Champion Jordan Spieth. The Byron Nelson golf tournament provides an excellent Dallas venue for companies to rent villas or suites and invite clients and potential customers to enjoy food, drinks and golf. Our client, Infomart Data Centers, took advantage of the opportunity to entertain their clients by renting villa space between the No. 1 and No. 18 holes -- a prime spot on the golf course. I attended as event coordinator, making sure logistical aspects ran smoothly and coordinating merchandise giveaways to Infomart's clients.
My hope is that the strategic public relations role -- which included big and small tasks -- I played for Infomart this weekend will positively impact the company's future business, partnerships and relationships.
Plus, attending the Byron Nelson was not a bad way to begin my time as an associate at Lewis Public Relations.
