Sheffield’s Conference Ambassador Programme is a city-wide initiative dedicated to attracting major national and international conferences to Sheffield. The programme supports academics, medical specialists, and experts from industry sectors in bidding for conferences to be hosted here.
Sheffield's Conference Ambassadors are experts in their field, in everything from particle physics to orthopaedic surgery, and a world of specialisms in between.
By bringing events to the city, these ambassadors not only generate substantial economic impact, but also raise the profile of our prestigious institutions and research areas - they are telling the world where Sheffield leads the way and are helping to drive the city's reputation as a conference destination.
When you bid to host a conference in Sheffield our team are ready to support you at every stage of the process. Those that join our ambassador programme receive access to comprehensive support. We will help you pull your bid information together. We will provide organisational support such as identifying the best venues and hotels, event management companies and special experiences and offers for your delegates.
Better still our ambassadors join a network of like minded individuals. We’ll invite you to networking events, our annual dinner and give you access to VIP opportunities. And you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you are directly contributing to the economic success of the city and Sheffield’s reputation on the international stage. What’s not to like?
If you would like to find out more about the programme or discuss a possible conference you would like to host, we'd love to hear from you!
