On December 9-10, 2021, Freeman, a global leader in live events, produced The Summit for Democracy. The event was coordinated and executed by bringing together over 100 heads of state from all over the world, in a seamless virtual experience where they discussed important initiatives across three principal themes: defending against authoritarianism, addressing and fighting corruption, and advancing respect for human rights.
Taking place Washington, D.C., the event included discrete and secure sessions from the South Court Auditorium for the President and Vice President, plus three off-site studios for cabinet and other various officials. Freeman’s team focused on providing the following services at the Summit:
“Producing an event of this magnitude that brings together over 100 heads of state from all over the world, is a no small task and requires flawless execution with attention to every detail,” said Laura Wills, Assistant Chief of Protocol for Major Events at U.S. Department of State. “From custom broadcast studios and complex broadcast engineering requirements to innovative virtual platform technological solutions, Freeman delivered beyond our wildest expectations.”
“The Summit for Democracy was an incredible opportunity for Freeman to bring a one-team solution to a full-spectrum event all happening on the world stage,” said Bob Priest-Heck, chief executive officer at Freeman. “No matter the size of the challenge, at Freeman we know every great event is dependent on a solid foundation delivered flawlessly. Through our team’s creativity, design, and logistics, we delivered an experience unlike any other.”
