Volvo Ocean Race Hong Kong Stopover
Volvo Ocean Race – The Hong Kong Stopover
January 2018, Mayo & Calder
The Volvo Ocean Race is the world’s most physically demanding and competitive round-the-world yacht race. In September 2016 MSB Concepts was selected by Mayo & Calder (the Event Delivery Partner for Hong Kong, Melbourne and Auckland), to deliver the operations for the first ever Hong Kong stop-over, which will see the eight teams sail into the city’s iconic harbour in January 2018. The highly complex project involves government liaison, event and stakeholder consultancy, venue set-up, on-site event management and also the production of a full race village for up to 20,000 guests per day at Kai Tak Runway Park for the full two week event.
