Bologna Ambassadors Award Ceremony 2024

Prominent personalities from the academic, scientific, business and sport communities will meet in Cappella Farnese, in Palazzo d'Accursio for the latest Bologna Ambassador Award Ceremony, to be held on Wednesday June 12, at 6 p.m. Leading institutional figures from the territory will be handing out the prestigious awards.

The event celebrates professionals from the city's academic, medical, scientific, professional, business, institutional and sport fields who will be honored as "Ambassadors" for improving the visibility of the destination and its scientific, cultural, economic and reputational development by bringing major congresses or other events to Bologna. This is an important result of the work carried out this year as part of the Bologna Ambassador project, an initiative aimed at leading personalities who are able to bring major events to the city thanks to their prestige and network of national and international relationships. The award is promoted by the Municipality of Bologna upon the initiative of the Bologna Convention Bureau, the Fondazione Bologna Welcome unit that operates to give the destination more opportunities to host valuable events.

The 14 Bologna Ambassadors awarded in 2023.

The awards ceremony will be preceded by a dialogue between key players in the area, who will discuss the growth of Bologna as an international destination in the MICE industry: in attendance will be Matteo Lepore, Mayor of the Municipality of Bologna, Maria Letizia Guerra, Delegate for public engagement of Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna, Mattia Santori, President of the Bologna-Modena Tourism Territory, Gianpiero Calzolari, President of BolognaFiereDaniele Ravaglia, President of Bologna Welcome Foundation, and Michela Pacifici, Co-Chair of the Conference Committee of the European Congress of Conservation Biology.

The evening will end with a cocktail reception in the stunning Palazzo Re Enzo.

It will be a valuable opportunity to celebrate the professionals who support the development of Bologna as a city for events, as well as to overview the present and future of the conference destination.
