The HK Stadium and the 7s

Being recruited by Wembley International around April 1994 as part of a team that understood and could control the Hong Kong Stadium’s (HKS) newly rebuilt technical systems. I worked as Audio Control within the Hong Kong Stadium until Wembley’s removal and replacement by the Hong Kong Government’s Electrical and Mechanical  Services Department (HKEMSD)
Through out his time I worked on all events that came through the venue, from Peter Gabriel, Alan Tam through to local football competitions. Including the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens that was hosted by the Hong Kong Rugby Football Union (HKRFU) and held within the HKS.
Even after the HKEMSD took over management of the HKS. The HKRFU held the annual Rugby Sevens tournaments within the HKS. The HKRFU continued to use my services through to 2014.

Having worked with the HK Rugby Sevens events for 18 years. I know the event like the back of my hand. and feel that a lot of the system installations still used are through my design.
At every event I designed and  operated all Audio systems.
I also produced the entertainment productions through two of the years. – a load of work…
I must say, I miss the buzz of that gig.
