OOC signs a marketing agreement with Ibtihal Al Zadjali Foundation
A ceremony for signing marketing agreement was held today morning between Oman Olympic Committee (OOC) and Ibtihal Al Zadjali Foundation for Trade and Services, within the framework of the objectives that OOC Board of Directors seeks to achieve in building partnerships with private sector bodies to enhance cooperation and generate additional income sources to enhance the budget in order to implement the plans and programs.
The agreement was signed by Sayyid Khalid bin Hamad Al Busaidi, OOC Chairman, on behalf of OOC, and Ibtihal Bint Ghazi Al-Zadjali, the company’s president, on behalf of Ibtihal Al Zadjali for Trade and Services. Based on the agreement, the company will market and promote the activities of OOC and all various programs as well as managing the activities in coordination with the concerned sub-committees according to the objectives of each committee.
On this occasion, OOC Chairman said that OOC board of directors had launched a tender for companies in Oman specialized in managing and marketing events, with the aim of contracting with one of them to assist OOC searching for partnerships in the private sector bodies through marketing and commercial sponsorships.
