Prague Convention Bureau has been awarding Congress Ambassadors with the greatest credit for the development of congress tourism in Prague in the previous year since 2010. The aim of the event is to award renowned Czech scientists, top experts, professors, and doctors who represent the Czech Republic in international professional associations, actively lobby in favor of Prague and then participate in the preparatory work of scientific, program or organizing committees of international congresses held in Prague. The awards are also handed out in the “Corporate Event of the Year” category. For 2016, following Ambassadors were awarded:
“Convention industry is an increasingly important sector of Prague’s economy, this fact being confirmed by the statistics of the Czech Statistical Office, which, last year, recorded the largest number of conferences in the capital over the past decade. In total, there were 4,426 conventions in Prague. I would like to thank all the congress ambassadors, who participated in the process of acquiring the events for Prague, for this achievement,” said Roman Muška, Managing Director at Prague Convention Bureau.
An independent Committee, composed of key tourism, academic as well as public sector representatives, decided about the winners in each category. The invitation to the committee was accepted by: doc. Ing. Monika Palatková, Ph.D., General Manager at CzechTourism; PhDr. Nora Dolanská, MBA, General Director at Prague City Tourism; Ing. Marta Nováková, President at Czech Confederation of Commerce and Tourism; prof. RNDr. Václav Pačes, DrSc., scientist, educator and biochemist; and prof. MUDr. Tomáš Zima, DrSc., MBA, Rector of the Charles University in Prague.
