In the past 3 years, CTP has helped CLDP conduct legal workshops in dozens of countries.  We work with local experts to provide comprehensive, affordable logistical and event management solutions, enabling the CLDP experts to focus on the program details and relationship building with foreign counterparts.  Typically our work entails transportation, lodging, venue, interpretation, conference materials and on site management, anything required by CLDP to conduct a smooth and effective program.
