HKEF Volunteers Team for Longines Masters of Hong Kong 2019 (15-17 February 2019, Friday to Sunday)


Dear members,

Organized by the EEM, Co-organized by the Hong Kong Equestrian Federation, the Asian and second leg of the Masters series, the Longines Masters of Hong Kong 2019 will be held from 15-17 February 2019 (Friday to Sunday) at AsiaWorld-Expo.

Since the first Longines Masters of Hong Kong in 2013, HKEF has been providing a team of trained volunteers who are experienced in sports events or equestrian sports to support the event every year.

Being the co-organizer for the seventh consecutive year, the HKEF will send a record high of over 250 volunteers to assist the operations of the event. This year, HKEF has worked with the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups, Agency for Volunteer Service and Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (IVE) for the volunteers’ recruitment. Within these three organizations, IVE helped to recruit their students as volunteers mainly for the Educational tours during the Longines Masters of Hong Kong . As of today, over 700 students from IVE have participated in the Masters before. This year, 130 new students from IVE will help on the education tours for schools students as well as members of different NGOs.

To provide the latest information and further equip all our volunteers, two briefing sessions for IVE students and general public were held on 22 January 2019 (last Tuesday) and 26 January 2019 (last Saturday) respectively. Over 120 potential volunteers attended the Final briefing held on last Saturday at the Shatin Racecourse. Ms. Lynda Nazer, Operation Manager of EEM and Ms. Angela Kong, Secretary General of HKEF were speakers at the briefing.

Volunteers play a key role in supporting the captioned event in many different areas, such as Accreditations or Information Counters, Grandstands, Crowd Management, VIP guests’ hospitality, Translators and Course Building, etc. Among all positions, members of the Piste Crew team play the most challenging role as they will be responsible for the Course Building of all the competitions during the Masters. Since all competitions will be held in live, piste crew team will be performing under great time pressure to build the competition courses in a timely manner.

The HKEF would like to express our gratitude to all volunteers and we believe that with our concerted efforts, we can have a successful Longines Masters of Hong Kong 2019.

For the seventh consecutive year, the Longines Masters of Hong Kong is again awarded with the “M” Mark Status by the Major Sports Events Committee of Home Affairs Bureau, being one of the largest sports event in Hong Kong.
