The UIM has announced today a major new partnership agreement with China’s BUND Holding Group.
Confirmed and agreed between UIM President Dr Raffaele Chiulli and BUND Holding Group President Xin Chongjie, the backing will start with the BUND group’s sponsorship of the UIM Awards Giving Gala on March 4th.
UIM President Dr Chiulli commented on the partnership;
On behalf of the UIM, I am honoured and delighted to enter in to this new partnership agreement with BUND Holding Group.
The group has been a key supporter of powerboat activities, most notably the Aquabike Class Pro World Championship and the Nations Cup World Series Grand Prix of Shanghai.
That successful support has helped boost powerboat racing in one of the world’s most dynamic markets meaning an ongoing partnership between the UIM and BUND Holding can only be of benefit to the sport both on and off the water.
BUND Holding is an operating group with interests in a diverse range of products and services ranging from financial services and real estate to industrial investment and sports event operations.
BUND Holding Group President Xin Chongjie told the UIM Marketing and Communication Manager Joanna Cosentino;
Powerboat Racing is a unique and dynamic sport which offers us great opportunities and a strong platform to develop our social and public involvement.
I look forward to growing our partnership in the years to come.
Chris Davies and I will be at and covering the UIM Awards Giving Gala for Powerboat Racing World.
