The summit will take place from 18 – 21 November in Bangkok and will bring together 1,300 delegates aged between 18-30 from all over the world. George P Johnson will be responsible for delivering the end-to-end event experience, and won the contract in a pitch process involving six different agencies. The agency will initially work with One Young World for the 2015 summit, with a view to working towards a longer-term partnership.
Jason Megson, managing director at George P Johnson, said: "The opportunity to lead a large and challenging project that truly delivers change for good was one that the entire agency got behind in spades, plus co-founders Kate, David and the wider One Young World team are an inspiring bunch to work with on a daily basis. We couldn’t be more delighted with this recent win."
The One Young World Summit will bring together young talent from global and national companies, NGOs, universities and other forward-thinking organisations, and intends for delegates to meet and make lasting connections with peers from almost every industry, sector and country.
During the summit delegates will debate, formulate and share innovative solutions for pressing issues faced by the world. World leaders, acting as the One Young World Counsellors, will listen to the debates.
