VAT on branding at customer hospitality event

Hi

I have a situation where the company I work for is holding a corporate golf event where customers are being entertained. Now I'm aware the event costs and food drink etc are disallowable from a VAT perspective, however there will be a large amount of cost incurred in branding the event with banners and advertising boards etc. Is this branding element of the event allowable from a VAT perspective or due to it all being incurred in the course of customer entertainment, is it actually classed as customer entertainment and therefore disallowable.

Any help on this matter appreciated as I'm unsure how far the "customer entertaining" element of the VAT rules extend as the customer is receiving no benefit.

Thanks

John
