Ambassador programme for Nottinghamshire

Universities, hospitals and charitable associations across Nottinghamshire are being called upon to help increase conference business in the county. The Nottinghamshire Convention Bureau, Experience Nottinghamshire’s business tourism arm, is launching a new Conference Ambassadors scheme on Wednesday 25 January. Association conference and events business is worth millions to the UK economy. This scheme will help Nottingham lecturers, doctors and consultants to encourage the associations they are members of to bring their conferences to the county. Ambassadors will get the support of the Nottinghamshire Convention Bureau throughout the conference organisation process, from preparing the initial bid and finding the ideal venue, providing marketing support and tendering services, through to booking accommodation and providing a warm welcome for delegates. As well as promoting the city as a top-notch conference destination, the Conference Ambassadors scheme will draw attention to the groundbreaking research and centres of excellence that the city is home to. Experience Nottinghamshire chief executive John Heeley said: “Hundreds of conferences are organised by Nottinghamshire organisations every year – but many of them are held outside the county. We want to make sure that as many of them as possible are held within our borders, bringing business to our excellent venues, hotels and support services. “The Nottinghamshire conference offer is diverse, flexible and professional, and locally-based members of national and international associations are perfectly placed to raise their own profile as well as Nottinghamshire’s in bringing their next event home.”
