events Case Study


COP28 was the 28th United Nations Climate Change conference held from 30 November to 12 December 2023 in Dubai, UAE. Over 70,000 delegates attended the ‘Blue Zone’ to review progress against the Paris Climate Agreement and work together to achieve actionable solutions. Members of the public were able to visit the ‘Green Zone’ to understand how they could play their role as climate actionists.

Trivandi was appointed to provide protocol and operational expertise to the COP28 team, lead and mentor government colleagues, and support the overarching goal to deliver a COP of action, through seamless operations and optimal guest experience.

A total of 49 staff members were embedded throughout the planning and delivery stages to support operations for Heads of State, Government and VVIPS attending pre COP28 in Abu Dhabi and COP28 in Dubai, as well as drive operational integration and delivery of the event as a whole.

The work required a delicate approach to stakeholder mapping and engagement, and a functional and user-friendly approach for operational delivery to be successfully achieved.
