The Preston Marriott was the base for the G7 delegations for the duration of the 3-day event.
Today was straight forward. Delegations were arriving. No simultaneous interpretation equipment required, other than Tour Guide kit on stand-by in case in bi-lateral meetings grew in size. All the documentation, agendas, programs translated and in the welcome packs.
The interpreting team stayed together on-site until required to assist in greetings and the scheduled bi-lateral meetings.
In the evening, the interpreters mingled and assisted as required, providing consecutive interpretation and whispered consecutive interpretation as needed, getting to know the speakers and delegates in preparation for the events to come.
