Many of our customers are deeply involved in both the racing and bloodstock industries and we see this collaboration as a unique opportunity to underpin our commitment to these sectors.

It is a great honour for Longines to become the Title Partner of Longines Irish Champions Weekend, showcasing Ireland's two premier racecourses, namely the Curragh and Leopardstown racecourses. Providing our long-lasting timekeeping expertise for this two-day meeting illustrates our continued commitment to equestrian sports, which are part of our rich history since 1878.
We have been working with Punchestown for seven years as sponsors of the BoyleSports Champion Chase. In that time, we have found Janet and the team to be a dedicated, supportive and an all-round amazing group of people to work with. This is one of the main reasons for continuing our sponsorship. Our partnership with the Punchestown team ensures that we maximise the event to its full potential, and give our customers the best possible racing experience.
“Sponsoring Ladies Day gave us the chance to give something back to our customers who are primarily ladies. Our day went well and it would be something I would like to grow.”
This sponsorship has significantly raised our brand profile not only in Ireland but across Europe too. With over 750 businesses attending the festival, the partnership with Punchestown provides us with an excellent platform to engage with our current customers and connect with new ones so that we are in the best position to support the SME sector in Ireland.
The team at Ballinrobe always provided the exposure to our target audience and being a leading racecourse in the west of Ireland it continues to provide incredible value. A day at Ballinrobe Races is a great pleasure, our customers from all over Ireland and beyond are always keen to return and enjoy the hospitality. John and the team constantly review our sponsorship requirements to ensure they meet our marketing objectives.
The Team at Punchestown are extremely hard working and dedicated and this is reflected in the excellent results we get as a partner hotel and from our sponsorship programme. Punchestown are instrumental in ensuring that the National Hunt Festival is one of the most successful weeks of the year in the Killashee through referrals, hotel bookings and also by looking after our clients at the racecourse throughout the week.
From erecting advertisement boards on raceday, the advertisement in the racecard, national and local newspaper/web coverage together with the large crowds attending the races, it makes good business sense for advertising a business on this platform.
Colm McLoughlin, Executive Vice Chairman Dubai Duty Free, "Dubai Duty Free’s support of major sporting events, including world-class horse racing, is very much in line with our strategy to promote Dubai and our brand. Our relationship with the Curragh has grown extensively over the years since our sponsorship of a race on Darley Irish Oaks Day in 2002 to becoming title sponsor of the Irish Derby in 2008."
