Saudi Arabia, 2020

The Group of 20, or G20, is the premier forum for international economic cooperation. In 2020, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia hosted the fifteenth meeting of the G20, and RA&A served as a partner for the delivery of a successful G20. In the face of the pandemic, RA&A introduced the G20’s first-ever virtual platform and executed more than 150 G20 virtual meetings, culminating in the first-ever fully virtual World Leaders’ Summit. Throughout the Kingdom’s presidency, RA&A provided strategic guidance to the Kingdom, organized all G20 events, and provided bespoke solutions to complex technological and logistical challenges, all while ensuring the Kingdom was able to deliver on their significant national and geopolitical objectives. RA&A also lead various aspects of the content, programming, production and communications strategy for the G20 Engagement Groups’ hybrid summits (B20, L20, T20, U20, V20, W20, Y20) and for side events (Global AI Summit and the Riyadh Global Digital Health Summit).
