Project Description

When the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data and United Nations Foundation decided to run their inaugural Data for Development Festival in Bristol they turned to Focal Point to bring the event together. Being based in the United States the Partnership needed a flexible and reliable production partner who could act as their local representative – taking on operational responsibility, helping with planning, procuring cost-effective suppliers and ensuring seamless professional delivery.

The US team visited the venue just once before coming on site for the event.

The Festival was a complex and high-profile event with content developed in collaboration with more than 70 international partners and sponsors including the Department for International Development; the World BankUnicef; the Hewlett FoundationGoogle and the Ford Foundation.
