International Polo Club Palm Beach Welcomes
Engel & Völkers as Field Sponsor
Combine the world’s leading international real estate advisors, Engel & Vӧlkers Wellington and Palm Beach, with the world-renowned International Polo Club (IPC), and you have a prestigious partnership highlighting the 2015 high-goal winter polo season.
Engel & Vӧlkers has secured the sponsorship naming rights to the Engel & Vӧlkers Field, giving them prominent positioning on the Championship Field’s scoreboard, which overlooks the polo field where the greats of the sport tenaciously compete.
“Amy Carr and Carol Sollak, owners of Engel & Völkers Palm Beach and Wellington, are well known in equestrian circles,” said John Wash, president of IPC. “In the field of equestrian real estate, they rank among America’s most elite brokers and advisors, and we are honored to have their prestigious brand affiliated with our organization.”
The Engel & Vӧlkers name will be associated with the American Triple Crown of prominent polo tournaments hosted at IPC: the USPA C.V. Whitney Cup, the USPA Gold Cup®, and the U.S. Open Polo Championship®. “Our two locations in the Palm Beaches exclusively represent many of the most exciting, high-end properties in the world. Our discerning clientele require properties that personify passion, inspired design, skilled workmanship, and luxury amenities,” said Carol Sollak.
“We can’t think of a more perfect partnership. Two luxury brands serving an international market, with similar core values of first-class service, dedication, and professionalism,” said Amy Carr. “To have our name adorn the sport’s premier polo facility is an extraordinary pairing of two exclusive brands.”
