v 2.2


The Hong Kong Sevens Where the World Comes to Play This years Hong Kong Sevens has moved from 3-5 April 2020 to 16-18 October 2020, making it now the final leg of the HSBC World Sevens Series. Additionally, it will take place after Tokyo 2020, which means you’ll see the Olympic Champions in action as well as the new World Champions. The rescheduling means Hong Kong Sevens will take place the weekend after the Singapore Sevens. Combining both events would be the ultimate Rugby Sevens trip! The Hong Kong Sevens is the world’s biggest Rugby Sevens festival and one of our favourite annual events. The action takes place at Hong Kong Stadium, jammed between skyscrapers and lush mountains on Hong Kong Island. Over the weekend, 120,000 energetic fans from around the world make the pilgrimage to enjoy the festivities while making the atmosphere lively, and truly unique to the Hong Kong Sevens. At the Hong Kong Sevens, the rugby is fast-paced and high scoring. Matches are just 7-minute halves making it three days of back-to-back excitement! If you’re a newcomer, the South Stand has a strong reputation as the most ‘energetic’, with dress ups, sing alongs and antics providing entertainment for those within and those looking on. Dress ups are encouraged for all! The Sevens is known for entertainment, with music being played in between matches making the crowd go wild! Throw in huge performances from the likes of Madness, The Village People, Gwen Stefani and The Beach Boys, and the Hong Kong Sevens stands apart from your usual sporting event. Rugby aside, Hong Kong is Asia’s World City and is culturally diverse with a rich colonial past which is on display throughout the cities modern galleries and museums.

Hong Kong is one of the world’s finance and business hubs and is fast becoming recognised as the leading shopping and food destination in Asia. We love Hong Kong for its entertainment value; with pubs, clubs and restaurants on Hong Kong Island coming alive during the Sevens. Visitors will enjoy a relaxed atmosphere throughout the city, as locals welcome visitors from around the world. The dramatic landscape features sprawling buildings and lush green spaces (over 70% of Hong Kong is jungle!) with the stunning Victoria Harbour separating Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. Travellers will enjoy world-class shopping, dining and nightlife; with more intrepid travellers able to explore hidden scenic hikes, beautiful beaches, markets and an amazing food scene—including the world’s cheapest Michelin star restaurant in North Point. As an Official Travel Agent, we can help you get to the Hong Kong Sevens with our Official Packages including Tickets, Hospitality, accommodation and other travel services (flights, transport and sightseeing). We have hand-chosen our hotels on Hong Kong Island for convenience, comfort and quality from budget all the way to the best 5-star luxury hotels available using our 26-years of experience helping fans enjoy this fantastic event.

Hong Kong Explore Asia’s World City, a modern metropolis built on the framework of an ancient city Hong Kong is at the intersection of cultures, a vibrant and bustling city, where fortunes are made, lost and enjoyed. Visitors to Hong Kong will be surprised by the density of buildings and apartments jammed between deep harbours and dark green mountains. On those mountains, hikers enjoy dense rainforest vegetation with amazing bird-life and stunning vistas across the cityscapes and sea-side towns. Hong Kong Island is surrounded by Victoria Harbour and the South China Sea, dotted with islands and ships. In the city, step through secret doorways to cool hang-outs, tasteful bars and trendy eateries. The cheapest Michelin Star restaurant in the world can be found in North Point; specialising in Dim Sum. Or visit The Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong, offering three Michelin Star restaurants, the most of any hotel in the world.

Night owls will be in their element, with many bars, nightclubs and rooftop terraces open all night across the city. For Sevens fans, the top nightlife spots can be found in Wan Chai and Lan Kwai Fong; where bars spill onto the street, amplified when Rugby Sevens fans come to town; creating a unique festival-like atmosphere across the island. To explore more of the city, take the Star Ferry across to Kowloon, where the shopping never stops and explore museums and markets that specialise in flowers, clothes and all things bizarre. Everywhere you turn in Hong Kong you will be surprised by what comes next.

Common Questions

Can I choose a different hotel? Yes, we can provide accommodation anywhere throughout your trip. We can provide our recommendations or if you have a particular property in mind, let us know and we’ll book that hotel for you (subject to availability).

Do I need Travel Insurance?

Learn more about your travel experience How do I make a booking?

In short, yes. We recommend travel insurance for every trip, big or small. That’s why we’ve partnered with CHI to offer travel insurance and have included a 15% off base policy discount for Australian residents. Plus, our Travel Experts can help choose the right policy for you. We recommend purchasing a policy at the time of booking to cover the duration of your trip.

Speak to a Travel Expert to start your journey.

Can I change my booking?

Phone: +613 5989 7666 Email: res@events.com.au Visit: events.com.au

Changes are typically not possible after making a booking, however we do assess changes on a case by case basis, depending on what is involved. Upgrades, extra nights or additions to a package are generally possible, subject to availability. We recommend adding extra nights and upgrades at the time of booking to ensure availability.

What ticket types are available? All packages come with 3-day General Admission Tickets. From here, you can upgrade to Hospitality, including Corporate Boxes, Premium Boxes and Executive Suites. In additon, we have the Carlsberg Clubhouse, the only hospitality option for individuals and small groups, which comes with optional Reserved Seats in prime locations (the only available in the stadium).

Can I purchase tickets by themselves?

I live in the US, can I book with you? Yes. We sell to customers from around the world and can quote in your local currency. All payments will be in HKD or AUD at the daily exchange rate. Many of our customers come from New Zealand, US, Canada, expats from the UK, Europe, Asia and South Africa.

Why should I choose you? We have been pioneering sports travel around the world since 1993. We have helped tens of thousands of travellers experience many of modern sports most historic moments. Not only are our team extremely experienced, but we are passionate about helping fans get the most from their travel experience, something we hope to do for you. By choosing us as your travel partner, it means you have access to Official Tickets and are not supporting the secondary or black markets, which is a risky way to enjoy an event. On top of this, we are fully accredited with AFTA, ATAS and other organisations. Finally, almost three decades of creating unforgettable travel experiences says it all. We look forward to warmly welcoming you to Hong Kong Sevens 2020!

Are you Official? Events Travel is a proud long-standing Official Travel Agent for Hong Kong Sevens (since 1995) and 2020 will be our 26th Hong Kong Sevens in a row!

What’s the difference between a Package and a Tour? Packages are designed for independent travellers and are not escorted day-to-day by Events Travel staff. With a package, you’re travelling on your own, but you may see Events Travel staff at formal events, transfers or ticket collection centres (if applicable). With a Tour, it’s the opposite and you will be escorted throughout your trip by a Tour Manager who is there to manage the group and to make sure everything happens smoothly. All our Tours are designed for small-groups and balance event experiences, destinations and are often themed, for example, golf, gourmet or nature. Tours are a great option to travel with like-minded people. Sit back and relax, knowing everything is taken care of.

Can my Travel Agent book with you? Absolutely. We work with registered Travel Agents around the world. You are welcome to refer your Travel Agent to book on your behalf and we can liaise with them directly for you. E V E NTS .C O M .AU
