Overall operation at the main summit meeting
Many VVIPs, including heads and leaders of Japan and African countries, participated in each meeting or conference of TICAD7. The biggest operational challenge at this conference was to make everything progress as smoothly as possible and in a timely matter.
Our main goal was that all the stakeholders and participants, who were mainly from African and Japanese governments, could experience the event in the most comfortable way possible. During the preparation stages, we spend a lot of time for planning this conference, and the staff involved in the overall management consisted of more than 500 members.
JCD coordinated closely with the many people involved and divided the staff onto different operations. We stayed flexible to deal with sudden changes and additional requests and made sure to be ready for any situation that could occurred, able to fulfill the clients' requests at the best of our capabilities.
