PSP were honoured to deliver the International Net Zero Local Leadership Summit & Conference live from our Virtual studio here at HQ. The event was designed to speed up the shift to Net Zero in the lead up to COP26.
Working in partnership with the UK100 and West Midlands Combined Authority for the first time, the 1 day event hosted on our own VEH platform saw over 500 International viewers log on to partake in numerous sessions and interactive breakout sessions throughout the day.
Hosted live in the studio by Polly Billington - Chief Executive of UK100 and Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, we connected over 20 remote presenters from across the country. Amongst the 32 Mayors from across the UK and over 30 local leaders, key speakers included Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester, Tracey Brabin, Mayor of West Yorkshire, and Steve Rotheram, Mayor of Liverpool City Region. Kwasi Kwarteng, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, also took part.
With 8 technical crew on hand to deliver the rehearsals and live event day, the project ran seamlessly with some great feedback from the clients, viewers and presenters.
The event highlights were broadcast on BBC channels and a full event write up can be found on the UK100 website.
“I was hugely impressed by the professionalism of the PSP team and their technical knowledge. Both the studios themselves and their online conferencing facilities were first class.”
Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands
"PSP were great to work with: extremely patient, well resourced and helpful. Everything we asked for we got. They were flexible too, keen to make the whole event work, and supported us with technical changes."
Polly Billington, UK100 CEO
