Academics Promote Wales Through New Ambassador Programme

ICC Wales has launched a recruitment drive for the Ambassador Wales Programme at Swansea University underlining its commitment to attracting national and international association conferences to Wales. The Ambassador Wales Programme brings together a leading network of professionals who believe in championing Wales as a conference, event and business event destination, with university academics seen as ideal candidates to promote this cause.

During the event, which took place in the College of Engineering at the university’s Bay Campus, academics had the opportunity to discover more about the ICC Wales development in Newport, South Wales, as well as the benefits of being an active ambassador for Wales. The ICC Wales team will be visiting more universities in the coming months to further promote the benefits of joining the Ambassador Wales Programme.

Giving a presentation on the new convention centre, Ian Edwards, Chief Executive of ICC Wales, said: “Large conferences at ICC Wales will tap into the expertise of university research in the local area and engage university academics as speakers, so there is a real opportunity here to boost the university’s profile.”
