Founded 30 years ago, the National Democratic Institute (NDI) is a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization that works to support and strengthen democratic institutions worldwide through citizen participation, openness and accountability in government. Each year, NDI hosts a dinner to present the Democracy Award, honoring individuals and organizations that have exhibited a sustained commitment to democracy and human rights. This dinner typically includes 800-1000 guests and is not held in Washington, DC.
With their 30th Anniversary Gala, NDI sought to update the event while effectively communicating their important global work.
We successfully produced an extensive and complex program that included a sitting head of state, a former Secretary of State, an Ambassador and prominent leaders in business and civic innovation. NDI was thrilled with the results, which included a complete redesign of the stage and program format as well as the oor plan. As a result of this success, NDI trended on Twitter for the rst time in their history, and has retained Du4 to produce future high profile annual events.
