November saw more than 700 international delegates gather in Dubai to discuss world issues at The Summit on the Global Agenda, run by the World Economic Forum.

During the three-day summit, participants addressed some of the key issues on the global agenda, including financial insecurity, global warming, the future of the internet and water security.

The outcomes of the summit will be presented at the World Economic Forum Meeting 2009, in Davos, for further discussion and action.

“The logistical complexity of the event and the ingenuity and creativity required to please 700 leading delegates posed a big challenge,” said senior vice president Frederic Bardin from dedicated PCO Congress Solutions International (CSI).

In organising the event, CSI worked in coordination with the Government of Dubai and contracted local suppliers for translation, communication, staffing, freight forwarding, logistical arrangements, traffic control, entertainment, tours and excursions.

“The Summit on the Global Agenda was an exceptional opportunity for us to consolidate our position as a trusted partner to the Government of Dubai. This event also helped to build our reputation internationally within both the private and public sectors,” added Bardin.
