Prague hosts the Jubilee 10th Meeting Industry Awards ceremony

The Prague Convention Bureau paid tribute to distinguished Czech scientists, professors, physicians and other elite experts for their contribution to the Prague meeting industry, at the 10th Ambassador Awards Evening. The award ceremony took place on April 3 at the Residence of the Mayor of Prague.

Ambassador Awards Evening celebrates the 10th anniversary of its founding this year. More than 40 Prague congress ambassadors were present at the anniversary ceremony. The event was held under the auspices of Zdeněk Hřib, Mayor of the City of Prague, who attended the ceremony in person.

In all, 42 events were awarded over the course of the Ambassador Awards Evenings’ 10 years existence. The events attracted more than 130,000 delegates to Prague, generating more than 377,000 room nights.

“I would like to use this opportunity to express our gratitude to the ambassadors awarded this year, and to all our congress ambassadors. Their active engagement in the process, starting from the candidacy and ending with the congress itself requires a great amount of their effort and patience. The awarded and nominated congresses often hold many primacies and records indicating the increasing attractiveness of Prague as a meeting destination. Local scientific community can thus profit from numerous opportunities to develop and improve its knowledge in a wide range of scientific fields,” said Lucie Čapková from the Prague Convention Bureau Ambassador Program.

The Ambassador Awards Evening was held with the support of Prague City Hall, CzechTourism agency and Czech Convention Bureau and the event was moderated by Veronika Paroulková.
