Patrons of the Programme

Convention Bureau member companies who set up the Gijon Ambassadors Programme in 2004.

galardon embajadoresOrganised as a Business Tourism Club for the Principality of Asturias, it brings together different sectors including conference centres, unique venues, hospitality industry, professional event planners, banquet restaurants and catering services, carriers and all types of specialised services (from professional photographers and stand assemblers to conference interpreters). In other words, the Club brings together all the professional "stakeholders" of the event planning industry. This holisitic vision, based on each sector's perspective, and thorough knowledge of customer needs has enabled local companies and public authorities to devise joint strategies for promoting and marketing our city. This ensures quality services with our client's objectives always in focus.

The members of the Convention Bureau, i.e. specialised companies, award the Gijon Ambassador title to scientists, doctors, researchers, and teachers, etc. in recognition of the difficulties faced and efforts invested in reaching out the scientific association to which they belong to prepare and organise meetings in our city.

The primary goal of this programme is to spur and motivate other professionals, while at the same time acknowledge the contribution already made in the past to the development of the city. It also seeks to facilitate the relationship between member companies and our customers to better understand their needs, improve and adapt our services to emerging trends, and innovate and design more efficient and effective meetings.

The Governing Board of the Convention Bureau consists of representatives from different subsectors who meet annually to elect the candidate for this award after consultation with all partners.
