20 November 2017.- ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño will be responsible for the design and production of the graphic images and the different scenographies at the First Global Forum of Local Governments to be held in Seville on the 22nd, 23rd and 24th of November. In addition, APD will be in charge of the audio-visual and technical equipment during the three-day event.

An international event aimed at becoming a meeting point between cities where they can discuss the global challenges set by the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development and such topics as digitalization, globalization and sustainability.

75 delegations of local governments from around the world are expected to attend, facilitating collaboration between regions and sharing actions carried out in different cities to improve their sustainability offerings at the environmental, economic, technological and social levels.

In this line, innovation, sustainability and multiculturalism are the three axes on which ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño has developed its graphic presentation for the event, based on triangulation networks that evoke the cultural exchange between cities.

For the opening ceremony, APD will install a large photocell with a podium for the family photo and a lectern for the speakers and the delivery of the “Golden Experiences” awards. In addition, there will be a large sculpture to be appreciated by the visitors during the main events of the Forum.

General assembly room and exhibition area

The main venue of the Forum will be Pavilion II at the Seville Convention Centre, a new building designed by the architect Guillermo Vázquez Consuegra. This space will house the activities planned during the event program, including lectures, monographic meetings, presentations and an exhibition area.

To reinforce the corporate identity of the event, ACCION Producciones y Diseño will install a large format graphic, a large green carpeted corridor, a photocall and a touch screen where participants can sign. Later, their signatures will be shown on the screen in the general assembly room.

This room, with capacity for 500 people, will have a large vertical garden as a backdrop for the participants’ presentations and will have the necessary audiovisual equipment to project multimedia content on a LED screen, streaming video transmissions.

At the same time, work meetings will be held in different rooms, each with a different thematic decoration: Smart Cities, Intelligent Cities, Climate Change, Inclusive Cities and Sustainable Destinations.

In addition, there will be a large screen in the central area to broadcast the events in the assembly room live to the viewers.

Carbon neutral event

In line with ACCIONA’s integral commitment to sustainability in all its activities, this will be a “carbon neutral” event, compensating the CO2 emissions linked to the event so that the final emissions balance will be zero.
