- Through live streaming this exciting competition, organizers effectively promoted board games and conveyed the message of positive thinking to the young generation.

- Over thousands of viewers could watch the competition anywhere in the world and enhanced event’s publicity.



The first ever Hong Kong board game competition attracted around 300 primary and secondary students to join. Aiming to enhance students’ problem solving ability and cultivate sports spirit, they organized four categories of competition in Secondary School Group and Primary School Group. Young people could train their IQs and EQs and learn positive thinking through multiple rounds of competition. In addition to promote the activity, the organizers partnered with TFI to live stream the full-day event.



Throughout the event, there are three live broadcasts: the opening ceremony, the finals and awards ceremony. The organizers were looking for a professional streaming video partner to provide them with one-stop live service, including shooting different angles as well as professional live streaming support at the event.
