RWC2011 (Aotea Square Fan-Zone)

Event Communications was contracted to provide satellite downlinking facilities for the Rugby World Cup Final. Three seperate satellite receive systems were installed & maintained at Queen Street, Wakefield Street & Aotea Square. We also assisted with the LED big screen build/installation.

Realising the huge support for the ALL BLACKS & the anticipated overflow from existing Fan-Zone locations, Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Developement (ATEED) decided to implement another Fan-Zone in the Aotea Square area. ATEED employed the services of Rapid Construction Ltd who were also responsible for building the Hamilton-400 street circuit. Event Communications was sub-contracted to install/maintain systems allowing a video feed to LED big screen panels + an audio feed to PA sound reinforcement equipment.
