What is the Stavanger region Convention Bureau Ambassador Programme?
The Region Stavanger Convention Bureau Ambassador Programme provides support to individuals who influence their professional associations and groups to meet in the Stavanger region. The programme is open to anyone who is interested in attracting a national or international meeting to the region.
Could I become an Ambassador?
Yes, if you are involved in a professional association or group and are keen to invite that group to meet here in the Stavanger region.
What is expected of me if I choose to become an ambassador?
You will work in partnership with our conference, incentive, corporate and events team at the Region Stavanger Convention Bureau in an effort to bring a future conference to the region. You can choose to be as involved in the programme as you wish, and you are not obliged to take on any additional responsibilities in your role as Ambassador beyond the requirements of the conference which you are bidding to attract to the region.
What type of support is offered?
We provide free and dedicated conference support services, from the bid stage through to the conference taking place in the region. For a more detailed overview of the services offered, please get in touch with us.
Will it cost me something to become an ambassador?
No, all of the services provided to support our local ambassadors are offered free of charge.
What are the main benefits of becoming a conference ambassador?
Becoming an events ambassador will allow you to raise the profile of your research amongst your peers, both nationally and internationally, as well as establish a platform for research projects and international collaboration. Conferences and conventions can furthermore boost the image of your institution and the region as a whole, and make a significant contribution to the region's economy. As an ambassador, you will be invited to attend regular networking events with your fellow ambassadors, receive regular newsletters on what is happening around the region and where appropriate receive acclaim for and exposure for your work.
