Thanks to dedicated individuals in research, academia, and business, Gothenburg has hosted several major conferences throughout the year. This has further strengthened Gothenburg’s position as an outstanding knowledge and meeting hub. During the city’s annual diploma ceremony on December 5th, these meeting ambassadors were acknowledged for their significant contributions.

To highlight and express gratitude to those who have played a particularly significant role for Gothenburg as a meeting destination throughout the year, Göteborg & Co organised a formal ceremony at the City Hall Börsen. On Tuesday, outstanding ambassadors were rewarded with diplomas for their exceptional efforts. Their expertise and reputation have been crucial for Gothenburg’s hosting of important meetings in areas such as medicine, technology, and journalism.

Gothenburg Mayor Aslan Akbas personally handed over the diplomas to the ambassadors. Representatives from the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology also participated in the ceremony to further reinforce the recognition of the ambassadors’ contributions to the city.

In addition to those present at City Hall Börsen, eight more meeting ambassadors were honored with diplomas.
