Created in 2007 at the initiative of the Convention Bureau, the Bordeaux Ambassadors Club now has more than 200 members. It brings together people from all fields: academic, research, scientific, economic, industrial, all members of networks or of a national or international association who are in a position to organize a conference for this association in Bordeaux (or have already done so).
Bordeaux, a symbolic conference destination
Bordeaux was ranked 4th by the ICCA in 2018 out of all French cities hosting national and international conferences (in number of participants). It is also recognized for its innovative "competitive clusters" and its academic excellence in sectors such as aeronautics, optics and lasers, the wood industry, geosciences, health ICT and neuroscience.
The Bordeaux Ambassadors Club plays a vital role in the promotion of the Bordeaux Metropole on the national and international stage. The ambassadors are recognized figures in academic, scientific, medical and economic organizations within the region. University professors, business executives, researchers and opinion leaders support Bordeaux as a "conference destination", thereby promoting the city's attractiveness and reputation.
75% of congress come to a city thanks to the influence of a local contact.
