Toshiba offering World Cup incentives
UK – Toshiba Air Conditioning continue to offer customers a special discount scheme linked to the performance of their customers’ home nations in the Rugby World Cup 2015 as a consequence of their status of official sponsors.
Since the kick off of the opening game between England and Fiji on Friday 18th of September, all home nation customers ordering Toshiba equipment have received an additional 5 per cent discount on top the customer’s standard discount. This offer is set to continue for all orders placed throughout the Group stages of the tournament.
A company’s home nation is defined according to the official location of its registered head office. Thus, a contractor whose registered office is in England has England as its home nation, and similarly for companies registered in Wales, Scotland and Ireland (both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland).
Further to this initial offer for the group stages, if a company’s home nation team progresses to the knockout stages, then this 5 per cent discount will automatically be increased to 7.5 per cent for as long as their team remains in the competition.
When a home nation drops out of the competition the discount will no longer apply to those companies registered in that country and the company’s pricing will revert to standard terms. After the England-Wales game on Saturday, English companies may have less time to profit from the scheme than they previously anticipated.
David Dunn, the Director and General Manager of Toshiba Air Conditioning, commented “The Rugby World Cup 2015 is shaping up to be the sporting highlight of the year. We want to harness the excitement and support our sponsorship of the event with this special incentive scheme, to give customers across the UK and Ireland one more reason to get involved and cheer on their national side.”
“It goes without saying that we are entirely neutral when it comes to the teams and the outcome of the tournament. Except to say, of course, it would be a fitting culmination if at least one of the home nations made it to the final.”
This edition of the World Cup marks the third consecutive time that the Toshiba Corporation has lent its support to the world’s biggest rugby tournament. The event will take place across England and Wales from the 18th of September to the 31st of October 2015 and features 48 matches with capacity crowds expected to flock to all the host venues.
