25th Ministerial Meeting OSCE

07/01/2019, Fiera Milano Congressi

The event: 

On December 6 and 7, the 25th Ministerial Meeting of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) was held in Milan. Fiera Milano Congressi hosted the event, which closes the Italian rotating presidency of the international organization based in Vienna. Foreign ministers from the 57 member states and the 11 partner countries of the organization took part in the meetings.

The request:              

We have been selected for the proven experience that binds us to Fiera Milano Congressi in the management of major events including the 2014 European Semester, the EXPO 2015 and the last meeting of the Dalai Lama. In this case, we aimed to guarantee the perfect execution of the interpreting service and to offer a performance in line with the authoritative nature of the event.

Our solution

As the only Italian partner of the global Congress Rental Network founded by BOSCH, we have made available our extensive technology and profound expertise in the management of Simultaneous Interpreting and Conference System.

The event employed 5 rooms with interpreting service for a total of 400 BOSCH Conference System microphones and 34 interpreting booths in line with European safety regulations, as well as two rooms reserved for the press conference.

The most important speeches of the event took place in the Silver plenary hall in the presence of 1000 participants in which 82 Conference System and 7 cabins for the interpreters were installed.

In the three main rooms we installed 3 Panasonic Autodome cameras with the TC Group proprietary remote control software that allows automatic video capture of the delegates when they take the floor.

All video speeches were then transmitted to major national and international media including RAI CNN, BBC.

Final result


A meticulous event planning ensured a prfectservice execution and organized technical coordination.

Flexibility and collaboration have dealt with the variables inherent in a complex event like this for the number of interventions and speakers involved.

OSCE and Fiera Milano Congressi expressed overall satisfaction with the service rendered.
