Guinness St. Patrick’s Festival 2011 Media Launch

If anyone knows how to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in style, it has to be GUINNESS®! The merry people at Guinness Anchor Berhad (GAB) recently threw a St. Patrick’s Festival Media Launch on March 1st with the theme…Merry Goes Around in March!

The festive celebrations and promotions from GUINNESS® go on from March 1st 2011 to March 31st 2011. Street parties, fun activities and a host of exciting promotions will be held nationwide by the merry GAB team in conjunction with St. Patrick’s Day for the whole month of March.

“For the entire month, GUINNESS® St. Patrick’s celebrations aim to share the true spirit and essence of the St. Patrick’s festival that is globally synonymous with GUINNESS®. Instead of just celebrating it for a day, we at GUINNESS® are bringing St. Patrick’s fun all throughout March to put bright spots in the daily grind of our consumers. Keep a look out for our entertaining festivities as well as consumer promotions that make everyday a St. Patrick’s Day! said Ms. Yap Swee Leng, Marketing Director of Guinness Anchor Berhad.

Look out for the coming street party of the year on March 17th 2011 in Changkat Bukit Bintang! Check out for updates and more information on the upcoming events for St. Patrick’s Celebrations. Be there or be square…J
