ICT 4 all Exhibition, Tunis 2005
A mandate from the Tunisian government
Otto Frei AG was mandated by the Tunisian government to organise the major parallel event at the second phase of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS).
« Having had a successful partnership with Otto Frei AG at WSIS Geneva 2003, we were pleased to work with them once again at WSIS 2005. The success of the Global Knowledge Partnership in Tunis was in part due to the professional attitude and dedication of the Otto Frei AG team, which facilitated the organisation of our Pavilion, our 41 Forum and workshop events, our Multi-Stakeholder Partnership and ICT for Development Awards celebration, and our overall promotion. A remarkable effort indeed. »
Rinalia Abdul Rahim, Director of the Global Knowledge Partnership
Otto Frei AG worked closely with the World Summit on the Information Society Organisation Committee (COSMSI) and was responsible for the concept, project management and logistical support of the exhibition and conferences.
About the ICT 4 all Exhibition

The ICT 4 all Exhibition welcomed over 70'000 visits including Heads of State, Government officials and international professionals. A central place replicating the 'Porte de France' in downtown Tunis captured the essence of a bustling market place. At the central place, six vibrant events celebrated ICT innovations with a cocktail of presentations, multimedia performances, dance performances and award ceremonies to congratulate leading champions and innovations in the field of ICT.
The role of Otto Frei AG

While paying attention to all details of this complex undertaking, the team never lost their spirit of friendly helpfulness.
