Director of City Growth
Sheffield’s Conference Ambassador Programme is about supporting experts in their field in bidding for conferences to be hosted in Sheffield. It has been running for over 10 years, working in partnership with the city’s academics, medical specialists and experts from industry sectors.
Ambassadors are people with a passion for living and working in the city, who want to show off what they do to their peers, across the country and the globe. They want to raise the profile of their institutions and research areas and showcase the city - there’s no better way to do this than by attracting their leading industry conference to be hosted here.
Hosting a conference is a fantastic way to showcase you, your institution and your city, but they're also great fun as they bring people together. By bringing your peers to the city, they get to experience Sheffield first hand, which means you have the added satisfaction of knowing you're directly contributing to the local economy and helping to drive the city's reputation as a conference destination.
