Beretta Australia is joining Field & Game Australia as a strategic partner and as a platinum sponsor of the 2019 National Carnival and beyond.
FGA CEO Dean O’Hara said the organisation has been seeking longer-term partnerships with aligned organisations and the agreement with Beretta Australia is a welcome and significant milestone.
“They are keen to be involved across the three pillars of Field & Game Australia: Australian Simulated Field competition, hunting and conservation,” he said.
“It is great to have them onboard as a major sponsor of the National Carnival and we look forward to working with Beretta Australia over a long period as partners so we can grow together.
“Now that this has come together it was important to include Beretta Australia’s support of the National Carnival in our information to members, but there is a lot more to our partnership that we will reveal together in coming months.”
Beretta Australia managing director Luca Scribani Rossi said Field & Game Australia’s membership represents a large pool of enthusiastic and loyal Beretta customers so there was a clear commercial aspect to the partnership.
“We have a long history of supporting competitive shooting in Australia and around the world and of course we want to remain close to our constituents and facilitate that relationship,” he said.
But equally important are the shared values and ideals of the two organisations.
“The theme of the Beretta gala dinner last year was conservation around the world and each of the members of Beretta’s worldwide family was asked to share their initiatives,” Luca said.
“We see Field & Game Australia as a perfect partner because they share those conservation values embraced by Beretta around the world.”
Corsivia targets will be used at the 2019 National Carnival, which Luca said were another example of Beretta Australia’s commitment to the environment.
“We are very proud to be able to supply them for the Field & Game National Carnival.”
Bowman Traps are onboard again as a sponsor and supplier of traps for one entire ground and providing the same on site support with maintenance as they did last year,
“Grant Sandford from Bowman Traps will be assisting to set the grounds in the weeks leading up to the Carnival. We had no major mechanical breakdowns last year and no major delays, Bowman’s support is critical as we continue to grow this major event,” event director Daryl Snowdon said
