The quality of corporate productions often lagged behind the standards of the U.S., Australia and other western countries. Capturing on this opportunity, On Stage blended east and west creative concepts with years of accumulated stage experience to become one of the first companies to introduce international-quality corporate event productions in Hong Kong.
