The Nottingham International Ambassador scheme consists of 60 international ambassadors, which is a joint initiative between the Nottingham Event Team – the event and conference bureau at Experience Nottinghamshire – and Invest in Nottingham.

The programme recruits influential representatives who have strong British and international connections to help fly the flag for Nottingham.

David Randall, director of Conferencing and Events at Experience Nottinghamshire, said: "We are honoured to add Rebecca Adlington’s name to the prestigious list of Nottingham International Ambassadors and delighted that Rebecca is supporting this major project to promote Nottingham on the world stage. 

"Rebecca is one of our greatest ever Olympic athletes and is well-known around the world. The fact that she is from Nottinghamshire and has agreed to promote Nottingham through her work is terrific news for the region."

Randall continued: "Almost 60 Nottingham International Ambassadors cover a broad range of sectors and have business in countries including Germany and China. The regularly increasing number of International Ambassadors are provided with all the resources they need to help them showcase Nottingham as a place to hold events and do business."
