Signature wins contracts

Frederick, Md.-based Signature Special Event Services announced this week that it has been awarded contracts for three major golf events this summer featuring players from around the world. The full-service event rental company will build 800,000 square feet of tenting and more than 1,000,000 square feet of flooring and carpeting for hospitality events.

Tom Brown, Signature’s president, said the 65th Senior PGA Championship (May 27-30 at the Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky.), the PGA Championship (Aug. 9-15 at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wis.) and the Ryder Cup (Sept. 14-19, at the Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Hills, Mich.) have all selected his firm to provide sheltered settings for their events.

At the Senior PGA event, Signature will build 135,000 square feet of tenting, plus 150,000 square feet of flooring and carpeting. At the PGA Championships, the company will build 335,000 square feet of tenting, plus 400,000 square feet of flooring and carpeting. For the Ryder Cup matches, Signature will build 330,000 square feet of tenting plus in excess of 500,000 square feet of flooring and carpeting. “While we’re not exactly putting a tent over an entire golf course, we will be covering and flooring an incredible amount of space at these three great events,” Brown said.
