The Solheim Cup is a biennial golf tournament for professional women golfers.

With innovation and equality as two of the event’s guiding principles, this event will be a great illustration of women’s sport getting the same level of attention as the men’s.
Jason Lu, ROE Visual’s founding partner, is very much engaged in playing golf. “Whenever I have the chance, I pack my clubs to play the greens, in Europe, the US or in China, it’s a great pastime to engage in with colleagues or clients. Apart from the fact that golf sport has my special interest, I really support the fact that the Solheim cup supports equality and brings this women’s tournament to the same level as the men’s. From a product point of view, I’m convinced we have adequate experience to deliver the best visual experience, having supplied gear for similar sports events, like the US Open and the Ryder Cup”.
