Major Overseas Cities’ Strategy for Using Unique Venues and Actual Cases 3. Use of the UK Prime Minister’s Office for Summit Talks

3. Use of the UK Prime Minister’s Office for Summit Talks
2009 G-20 London Summit held a program at the UK Prime Minister’s Office
2009 G-20 London Summit was held in London. While most of the summit was held at ExCel London, an exhibition and convention center in London, specific programs proceeded in various locations including ExCel London during the summit period. And one of the venues was the UK Prime Minister’s Office. Hosted by Prime Minister Gordon Brown, the summit dinner excellently exploited the Prime Minister’s Office and was described as having made a wonderful presentation of the United Kingdom. While dinners and meetings proceeded, tea time for the first ladies also proceeded. 10 Downing Street is frequently used in inviting and receiving distinguished guests to events hosted by the UK Prime Minister. Receiving dignitaries of the world into the Prime Minister’s Office, a traditional building, is a an outstanding case in which a country’s history and culture are widely publicized and the class of a host city is upgraded.

No. 10 Downing Street, a place massing buildings related to the UK government
Downing Street represents the UK government and includes the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and Home Office. No. 10 is for the Prime Minister’s Office, while No. 11 has the Office of the Chancellor of the Exchequer. As the Prime Minister’s Office has stood there since the 18th-century establishment of the modern cabinet system in the UK, Downing Street stands for the UK government and is one of the streets that are historically the most renowned. The name came from George Downing (1623-1684), a person who made major contribution to the Restoration who constructed buildings in the area and leased them to the HM Treasury. And the UK Prime Minister’s Office at No 10 has been used as the Prime Minister’s Office since it was granted to Robert Walpole in 1732 by George II. The construction of the building was carried out in 1680 by George Downing, a diplomat and general. The building includes Cabinet Room, White State Drawing Room, and Terracotta State Drawing Room, and pictures of former prime ministers are hanging in the stairway.
