Fort Lauderdale pay tribute to beach volleyball events in annual awards
The Beach Majors Company’s continued excellence in organizing world class beach volleyball events has been recognized by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce who have awarded us the coveted Salute to Business International Business Award.
Every year, the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce distinguishes businesses that “excel in their fields and make strong, lasting impacts on the community” – one which the panel believe the Majors Series contributes with the Fort Lauderdale Major. The 2019 event, which will run between 5-10 February, will be the fourth time a Major Series tournament will be held at the South Florida venue since the 2015 World Tour Finals.
The International Business Award was first presented in 1996, and the Beach Majors Company joins an illustrious list of past winners to receive the top prize.
Beach Majors CEO Hannes Jagerhofer said: “I’m very proud that our hard work and enthusiasm in bringing the highest level of international beach volleyball to the United States has been acknowledged in this way.
“We strive to make our tournaments the best for the fans, the players, our VIP guests, and the local residents and business people of Fort Lauderdale who have showed their continued support for the event and for welcoming us to their community.
“For it to be awarded by the Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce is a huge honor, even more so since we opened our Fort Lauderdale office in 2017.
“We look forward to strengthening our links with the local Fort Lauderdale community and ahead to our fourth event in February.”
