Tzianeng Vaj, CEO for the 2015 HMONG J4, said the reason for the long lines and the long waiting to get into the event was due to not having enough staff worked at the gates and not having enough security tools to check the spectators. Tzianeng Vaj also said there were eight buses to transport the spectators from the shuttle bus waiting area to the event.
2015 was the first time that Lao Family Foundation allowed to sell beer in side the event.
“The major improvement for next year is to get more people working in the event to reduce issues and to introduce more other activities than just sports” said Tzianeng Vaj.
Miss Hmong J4 Pageant competition was cancelled and not many entertainment compare to 2014 Hmong J4.
Tzianeng Vaj also said that an estimated more than 40,000 tickets sold on the first day.
