The 11th annual Conference of Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity brought together 11,500 delegates from 172 countries in Hyberabad, India.

The event management company was responsible for organising the conference, which had the theme of biological diversity and protection, as well as accommodating delegates and managing the audio and visual requirements.

Sian Jones, from the Asian Conference Awards, said: "To handle a mega conference of over 10,000 delegates in India was a challenge and the magnitude, complexity and the duration of this conference tell their own story. The organisers achieved so much over a very short timeframe and did a great job in mobilising their resources and equipment from overseas."

Established in 2012, the Asian Conference Awards recognise conference companies and their suppliers throughout Asia and the Middle East.
