We look forward to hearing from you.

We have alliance relationships with innovative and dynamic communications companies internationally, allowing us to select the best equipment for each task; this allows our team to bring the right solution to each challenge, regardless of the complexity.

The P.A. People developed its first integrated communications system more than 20 years ago and has since developed and refined the most flexible and integrated wireless and wired-events systems available world-wide. The P.A. People was selected to provide communications for successive Summer Olympic and Paralympic Ceremonies in Sydney in 2000 as well as the sports presentation communications for most of the Olympic venues. We have successfully provided similar systems for the 2004 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games in Athens, the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, 2006 Asian Games in Doha Qatar and the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. In 2012 we provided communications systems to 30 sporting venues for the London Olympics. In 2015, the Company was involved in the 24th Men’s Handball World Championships in Qatar, the inaugural European Olympics in Baku, Azerbaijan and the UAE National Day ceremonies in Abu Dhabi in 2015 & 2016.


The P.A. People constantly evaluates and invests in the latest technology and our inventory includes:

Our systems are deployed over analogue and digital copper pairs, Ethernet networks, fibre optic cable, wireless links, GSM, 3G, 4G networks and the Internet.
