London-based CTN appointed for G8 Summit in Northern Ireland

UK corporate and events agency, CTN Communications, has been appointed by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, on behalf of Her Majesty’s Government, to help stage this month’s G8 Summit at Lough Erne in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, 17-18 June 2013.

The UK currently holds the presidency of the G8 and the upcoming Summit, to be hosted by the Prime Minister, will be an opportunity for G8 leaders to have frank discussions about the important global issues of the day.

CTN will manage all production aspects of delivering the Summit at the Lough Erne Resort, accommodating the leaders, their delegations and accredited media. CTN will also provide the conference and media filing facilities and will act as host broadcaster, providing pooled television pictures and the facilities needed to help UK and International broadcasters cover the event.

The London-based agency has more than 20 years’ experience working with global businesses and brands, including more than 15 FTSE 100 companies. CTN has experience working with Government and is currently engaged by the Ministry of Defence and the Foreign Office on separate assignments. The CTN team also produced the Thames River Pageant last year as part of the celebrations to mark The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

“CTN is delighted and honoured to have been asked to help produce the G8 Summit,” said Chief Executive of CTN Communications, Stephen Watson.

“This is a hugely important and high profile undertaking, which needs to be delivered to a high standard, on time and within budget. Lough Erne is one of the most beautiful locations in the UK. It will be our task to help create a Summit that has an intimate feel, while accommodating the people, facilities and infrastructure necessary for an event of this nature.”

The G8 is made up of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the USA and the UK. The EU is represented by the President of the European Commission and the President of the European Council.
