Over 1,600 senior government officials, delegates from Member States, business leaders, representatives from non-governmental organizations (NGOs), academics, United Nations and international and regional organizations, activists, and trafficking victims from over 116 countries participated in the Vienna Forum, which provided a platform for a new campaign of coordinated action to tackle trafficking in persons. Additionally, 150 journalists were accredited for the Forum.
Twenty-eight panels, workshops, special sessions and side events explored the themes of the Vienna Forum and offered an opportunity for dialogue between participants. Special exhibits held throughout the City of Vienna, including “The Journey” (which received over 5,000 visitors during its five-day stay), a photo exhibit, cartoon competition and film forum, raised the visibility of the issue of trafficking in persons among the public.
