The Inaugural One Young World Summit held at London’s Excel centre brought together six hundred 25 year old delegates from 112 countries to give the new generation a platform to voice their opinions and ideas. The 6 plenary sessions focused on various issues that face the world today. Here the delegates could network with each other and get their voices heard by influential figures. Among the high profile speakers were Bob Geldof, Kofi Anan, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Professor Muhammad Yunus and Crown Prince Haakon of Norway. Brand Fuel provided the logistics and complete event production for the summit. The event attracted a lot of positive media attention.
Showpax provided all passenger transport for the event, which amounted to 315 individual airport arrival transfers and 276 departure transfers. There were also 186 VIP transfers between hotels, venue and private addresses, together with 68 coach transfers between hotels and the venue and 35 Airport Shuttle coaches.
In an ever changing transport programme, Showpax were able to plan initial requirements through project planning and team meetings with the client, and then adapt whilst on site to whatever situation arose.
In 2011, Showpax provided similar services to the One Young World Event staged in Zurich
