SDG tent at Davos

SDG tent at Davos – “a place for companies with a purpose”

End January, The World Economic Forum (SEF) took place in Davos. The WEF is an annual meeting of the CEOs of the largest companies in the world, international politicians, intellectuals, and journalists.

High on the WEF’s calendar this year was the environment, and climate, which fitted-in seamlessly with the United Nations sustainable development goals. A number of these goals are: ending extreme poverty, inequality, injustice, and climate change. Those are the core of DSM’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
In Davos, their SDG tent offers space for companies presenting their goals to end extreme poverty, inequality, injustice and climate change.

Design & fit-out of temporay event accomodation

Hypsos took care of the design and fit-out of this temporary multifunctional accommodation, in which several presentations, meetings, and dinners took place. One of the areas was turned into an internet café to facilitate visitors and a kitchen area was set-up, for preparing dinners for up to 160 people.

In the SDG tent a total of 40 presentations were given, and over 3,000 visitors were received. Including the Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and Dutch Queen Maxima, who visited the SDG tent twice and, of course, DSM CEO, Mr. Feike Sijbesma.

The fit-out of this temporary structure high up in the Alpes was quite a logistical challenge. Still, thanks to a unique collaboration between DSM, Hypsos, Maison van den Boer and Losberger De Boer, we have been able to create a beautiful presentation, including all graphics, lighting and AV.
