Ambassadors' programme

Ambassadors' programme 

The ambassadors of the programme are a group of people who benefit from a package of activities, tools and services in order to bring the destination to the world. The Geneva Convention Bureau is honoured to have a large number of ambassadors who help to promote the destination internationally in the convention world. 

The "Capital of Peace", as Geneva is known, offers infrastructure and solid expertise in several fields such as diplomacy, education, medicine and innovation. It is, in fact, the leading destination for numerous congresses and professional events. 

Why join us?

For anyone interested, you must be part of an association active in the national/international sphere, have the desire to take part in a congress bid and/or have already organised a congress as a local chair. Of course, you must also be convinced that we are the best destination to organise congresses, meetings or professional events.

What are the advantages of being part of this programme?

  • You will be able to participate in the private events organised each year.
  • You will be part of the agenda of events organised by the Geneva Convention Bureau for the partners and members of this programme.
  • You will have the opportunity to exchange with other members from different professional backgrounds.
