Over a thousand representatives of European countries, international organizations and United Nations gathered for this important event, this year presided over by Italy. Established in 2009, the Efdrr is the European regional platform of the Sendai Framework Agreement for 2015-2030 Disaster Risk Reduction; it is an important forum for discussion on the challenges facing Europe at this level. Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte and Mami Mizutori, the UN special representative for disaster risk reduction, opened the meeting. Head of Civil defence Agostino Miozzo moderated. Tecnoconference Europe–Del Fio Group provided all the technical services.
The forum was based on the Global Disaster Risk Reduction Platform held last year in Mexico, focusing on local resilience, economic risks and the 2020 priority goals.
Tecnoconference Europe has performed live shooting with a three-camera full HD video direction, one of which entirely dedicated to the sign interpreter, and one radio-camera. Through a complex emission direction, live images harmoniously coexisted with the numerous graphic contributions in speech support. A videoconference link with Boston was established with one of the world's leading experts on the subject.
The event was streamed live in multiplayer mode for all the interpreted languages on Civil defence's website.
Simultaneous translation took place in four languages (English, Italian, French and Russian) for a total of 800 receivers.
On the opening day, four rooms were connected to the plenary session in CCTV with a sophisticated fiber optic system.
