Conference Ambassadors are typically persons who are influential in their respective professional and industry associations, as well as being industry specialists. They may already have practical experience securing and organising conferences in their chosen field, or have demonstrated the potential to do so. In their ability to influence peers and promote locally held events, Conference Ambassadors often serve as spokespersons for Dublin, as a professional conference destination,especially while attending conferences and events overseas. They also serve as a valuable role during the bidding process, where the local chapter of the international association is often required to lead the bid.
