The P.A. People selected!  Baku 2015 – first European Games and Qatar 2015 Men’s Handball World Championship.

Baku 2015 – first European Games

In June 2015, the inaugural European Games will be held in Baku, Azerbaijan. Against stiff competition, The P.A. People is proud to have been selected to provide the Communications System for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies for this prestigious event.

Chris Dodds Managing Director – The P.A. People commented “We have successfully delivered stage 1 of the systems requirement as event rehearsals soon get under way. We are looking forward to fulfilling stage 2 shortly” said Chris.

The systems specified are considerably larger than those called up for the London 2012 Games and are of a similar scale to those deployed in Sochi in early 2014.

The P.A People is looking forward to deploying their IP centric systems for wired matrix and partyline comms, two way radios, time code, cue lights, cast monitoring and production vision monitoring.

Qatar 2015 Men’s Handball World Championship

We were awarded the contract to work with Auditoria and David Atkins Enterprises to supply communications systems to support the Opening and Closing Ceremonies for the 24th Men’s Handball World Championship in Doha Qatar – held recently in January.  Two tonnes of equipment had left our Sydney office less than four weeks after our first briefing.
