Events Management Company
Acting on feedback received from earlier COPs regarding the cost of fit outs for pavilions, COP28 UAE has taken steps to innovate the process. As part of these improvements, we have appointed an Event Management Company (EMC) to exclusively handle the setup of pavilions within the Blue Zone.
The EMC will provide a fixed set of tiered packages to meet pavilion requirements. It will also provide support for required permits and other operational requirements to streamline and simplify the buildup, and to ensure it is more cost-effective, efficient, and sustainable.
