Jakarta, 12 May 2022.   The leading Professional Convention Organizer (PCO) in Indonesia, PACTO CONVEX, will be PCO of the Seventh Session of the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (GPDRR) 2022.   GPDRR 2022 will take place as an in-person event from 23rd to 28th May in Bali, Indonesia, co-hosted by Indonesia’s National Disaster Management Authority (BNPB) and UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR).

GPRDD 2022 is expected to welcome over 5000 delegates from 193 United Nations (UN) member countries for a six-day conference at Bali Nusa Dua Convention Centre (BNDCC) and Bali International Convention Centre (BICC), Nusa Dua.

We are delighted by the appointment of Pacto Convex as official PCO for this major global conference.

We look very much forward to cooperating with BNPB and UNDRR for this important conference.
