Technical Setup
This group of services relates to the provision of equipment such as LCD projectors for presentations, desktop computers and laptops, printers, DVD players and the cybercafé.

The presence of a sound technician is mandatory whenever sound appliances and other technical equipment are requested. Meeting coordinators, IT officers and document assistants, and various other types of staff assist in coordinating and facilitating a successful meeting, whether it is held at Gigiri, elsewhere in Nairobi or further afield.
