Meeting ambassadors honoured by Gothenburg

Published by Linda Nordberg 3 December, 2018 in Meetings.

The development of Gothenburg as a city of meetings is making progress, largely due to dedicated individuals in research and academia. Gothenburg is further strengthened as a city of meetings through international networks. For the third consecutive year the city awarded diplomas to people who made meaningful contributions to the city of meetings.

In order to formally thank and honour people who have been particularly meaningful for Gothenburg as a city of meetings, the Gothenburg Convention Bureau held a ceremony at Chalmersska huset (The House of William Chalmers) in late November. These key individuals, who are active in the fields of medicine, dentistry, software development, environmental economics, architecture and non-destructive testing, all serve as ambassadors for the city and have played a crucial role, through their expertise and reputations, in ensuring that Gothenburg hosts meetings.

For the third consecutive year the city awarded diplomas for meaningful contributions to the city of meetings. This year, eight recipients accepted diplomas from the chairperson of the Municipal Council and representatives of the administration at the various institutions of higher learning.
