Golf Course Branded DisplaysWhen 4com were let down at the very last minute for their golf course banners, flags and signage - after just one phone call to RT Promotions, we were able to recover the situation for them and get their charity golf day back on track and all 'branded up'. RT Promotions MD Richard Mack explained - "When their previous supplier let them down, we couldn't allow their event to go wrong like that. It was touch and go that we could get this turned around for them in such a short amount of time - but the team pulled it off, with all items being delivered to the course on time - the participants were none the wiser, but our client, 4com, were hugely impressed".
