About the Program

Our Ambassadors are an elite group of meeting and events professionals who serve as advocates for MMBC and the broader meetings industry.

Professionals from across the country are included in our cohort, helping us to:

  • Share stats and stories about the industry’s value to people, businesses and the economy
  • Raise awareness of MMBC initiatives and opportunities to get involved
  • Encourage other meeting professionals to become industry advocates
  • Develop new content, including blog posts, videos and case studies on the ROI of meetings
  • Recruit supporters and third-party validators in business and government

If you’re interested in serving as an Ambassador, or would like to nominate a colleague, send us a note.
