Hong Kong Tourism Board Provides Satellite Feed of New Year l New World – Hong Kong Countdown Celebrations Biggest-ever "Pyrotechnic Musical" with Air, Sea and Land Elements

The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) will stage a dramatic "pyrotechnic musical" interweaving fireworks, pyrotechnics, special lighting effects and music on New Year's Eve (December 31) to usher in the year 2014. The following are six highlights of the event:

·         First-time use of fireworks: For the first time, fireworks will be featured in the show, together with pyrotechnics, special lighting effects and music, to orchestrate an eight-minute pyrotechnic musical.

·         Largest scale in the event's history: Fireworks and pyrotechnics will be launched at various heights across the harbour and on the shore, so that the show will cover an area higher and wider than in any previous edition.

·         All eyes on the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre: The iconic Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre will be the focal point, with a gigantic LED screen set up next to the building to display the numerals "2014" when the clock strikes midnight. Pyrotechnics will also be launched from the roof of seven buildings in Wan Chai and Admiralty.

·         A shore-to-shore show: The pyrotechnics will be launched in six layers, both skywards and from Tsim Sha Tsui towards the other side of the harbour.

·         Festive firework elements: Heart- and smiley-shaped fireworks will be launched to exude cheerfulness.

·         An awe-inspiring, immersive experience: Spectators will be able to fully immerse themselves in the spectacular show, as pyrotechnics will be launched close to the harbour front in Tsim Sha Tsui.

To share the excitement with global TV audience, the HKTB will provide satellite feed of the entire event for use by television broadcasters worldwide as the clock strikes midnight. Details of the satellite feed are as follows:
