14 May 2021 - G7 summit to be hosted by events agency Identity, run by Michael Gietzen (Reeves 2001-03)

Michael Gietzen (Reeves 2001-03) is the managing director of local events agency Identity, which has been selected to host the forthcoming G7 summit.

The 47th G7 summit is taking place in Carbis Bay, Cornwall, from 11 to 13 June, with attendees including Prime Minister Boris Johnson, President Biden, President Macron and Chancellor Merkel.

Michael said, 'This will be the largest multilateral summit that the UK will host following its departure from the EU and, indeed, the UK’s first international in-person event since the pandemic lockdown.'

A crucial element of the delivery is sustainability and support to local suppliers, with Identity and the government working together to engage local firms as much as possible in the delivery of the summit.

Michael is pictured here in Cornwall with Janet Dodds, director of live events at Identity, who said, 'We are honoured to have been chosen and trusted to deliver this very important and prestigious event. Once again Identity will be able to showcase its expertise in the smooth execution of a major, high-profile international event. From a delivery aspect, we will apply our best-in-class experience of working with world leaders and, at the same time showcase the very best of Cornwall.'
