The G8 Summit brings together leaders from the most powerful countries in the world. Their aim? To tackle global problems by discussing big issues and planning what action to take. Our brief was to stage this globally significant event at Lough Erne, Northern Ireland. And big names meant big numbers. With world leaders and delegates (900 attendees), the world’s media (600 media from 108 TV stations), and the world watching (50 events, 30 bilateral meetings and 10 press conferences), we managed the entire production and technical aspects of the two-day summit (250 team members, 12 days to set up 42 rooms).
