Brussels Events Ambassadors Evening: 14 Event Organisers become Brussels Ambassadors

Brussels Events Ambassadors Evening: 14 Event Organisers become Brussels Ambassadors named 14 congress organisers as ambassadors of Brussels. The new ambassadors are organisations that have helped put Brussels on the map as an international MICE destination over the past two years.

It was the fifth edition of the Brussels Events Ambassadors Evening, which honours conference organisers. With over 900 international professional events each year, Brussels is Europe's leading city for conference hosting. Brussels aims to maintain this position, in part thanks to the ambassador programme. The ambassadors form a network of business people who are not only passionate about their sector but also about our region. As such, they contribute to Brussels’ image internationally. The network currently counts more than 150 ambassadors from various sectors: medicine, science, technology, art, economy,...
