The adviser and daughter of US President Donald Trump, Ivanka, prefers a simple welcome when she arrives at the Shamshabad airport.

While the government was gearing up to accord her a grand welcome, she prefers the welcome that would be accorded to any delegate.

Ivanka, who will be participating in the three-day Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES)-2017 on November 28 reportedly informed the Indian and Telangana governments her decision through the US Consulate.

From the airport, Ivanka will reach the Hyderabad International Convention Centre (HICC) - the venue of GES-2017 - by road, where she will address the GES along with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao.

Telangana IT minister K Taraka Rama Rao is also expected to share the dais.

During her stay, Ivanka will be accorded 5-tier security, akin to that received by the US president.

Ivanka will have her own bullet-proof, armoured vehicles, with specialised weapons and trained sniffer dogs for protection. The US secret service will be in charge of the first two rings of her security.

India's Special Protection Group (SPG) will take care of third layer. Atleast 3,500 personnel from the police, IB, Special Intelligence Branch and counter-intelligence will be in mufti in the fourth and fifth layers.

Police have installed over 500 CCTVs for the summit. The Anti-Naxal 'Greyhound' and Anti-terror 'Octopus' NSG commandos will be deployed around Hotel Taj Falaknum Palace where she will be attending a dinner.

While door-to-door searches in the vicinity of the old city have already been in place, it is believed that Ivanka and a few other delegates will be shopping at the Charminar, Lad Bazaar, and Golconda.

However, the officials are tight-lipped about her itinerary.

The state Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL), which will be responsible for testing the raw material that will be used to prepare food for Ivanka, has readied three teams for the purpose.

Each team, consisting of five officials, will check food at the HICC and also at the Taj Falaknuma. Around 1,500 guests will be ferried in 40 buses from HICC to Falaknuma palace for the dinner.

The government has been decking up the city ahead of the summit, particularly the areas around the summit.

Around 1,000 beggars in the city have been moved to ashrams located in Chanchalguda and Cherlapally jails.
