When asked what problems they were looking to solve and objectives they were looking to accomplish by implementing the Lennd Virtual Media Hub platform, PTO Communications Director, Jane Hansom stated, 

“With global travel restrictions limiting the attendance of on-site media due to COVID-19, we needed an effective solution to enable us to provide approved global media a way to effectively cover the PTO 2020 Championship.

We wanted to provide a virtual hub for media to cover the PTO 2020 Championship remotely, and make it as easy as possible for global media to find the assets and information needed in order to maximize coverage of our event.”

“We know how critical media and exposure are to the success of any event, season or series of events. Given the complexities COVID has presented for the world’s media and our partners, we set out to create the most engaging, dynamic and user friendly platform to facilitate and maximize coverage. As such, it's incredibly rewarding to see the response from our partners and from the media themselves” said Lennd CEO, Chris Carver.

When asked why the PTO decided to work with Lennd, Hansom said:

“We chose Lennd because they have the technology to deliver against our objectives and have successfully executed this on multiple occasions with other major events like the PGA Championship, US Open and the KPMG Women’s Championship.

By facilitating a state-of-the-art virtual media hub and providing our global media base with the tools to access comprehensive information about our event, it is our belief that this will increase global coverage, specifically from outlets who may not have travelled to the event to cover it in person” said Hansom.

“It’s especially exciting in such a tough time to have partners that see the potential of this technology to expand their reach, reduce their costs, and create a better experience for key constituents (like the media). Not to mention a partner that sees this as a state of the art way to showcase their athletes." said, Lennd Co-Founder & CEO, Chris Carver.
