Panasonic Australia is proud to announce that the company has signed a three-year sponsorship agreement with Tennis Australia, commencing in January 2010 and continuing until 2012. The agreement encompasses a number of tournaments including the Medibank International Sydney, the Brisbane International and the Australian Open – the Grand Slam of the Asia Pacific.
Panasonic Australia is the official TV, Camera and Air Conditioning Sponsor of Tennis Australia and the Australian Open. The company’s market-leading products – LUMIX digital still cameras, VIERA TVs and Inverter Air Conditioning systems – will be aligned with Tennis Australia’s prestigious sporting events throughout the summer.
We are excited to have Panasonic committing to what will be an enduring and successful relationship. Panasonic is a leader in its field and we believe the brand offers a natural fit for the Australian Open and the Australian Open Series events.
