Meetings Prague awarded distinguished Czech scientists, professors, doctors and other top experts for their contribution to the meetings industry in the Czech capital again. Representatives of the Prague Convention Bureau, the umbrella organization for the Prague meetings industry, the City of Prague and the Ministry of Regional Development presented prizes to the winners in a total of six categories as part of the 12th Ambassador Awards Evening this year. The awards ceremony took place on 25 April 2023 at the Residence of the Mayor of Prague.
The Ambassador Awards Evening was held under the auspices of the Mayor of Prague, Bohuslav Svoboda, who also personally attended the awards ceremony. The winners of each category were, in line with tradition, selected by an independent committee consisting of 12 experts from the meetings industry.
“Organizing congresses in Prague has always been an immensely interesting activity for me. On the one hand, Prague is a beautiful city that attracts many people, but at the same time, in my field of expertise, the Czech capital has several historical firsts, such as one of the first wastewater treatment plants on the European continent. At the same time, there are also other treatment plants in Prague, the newest one from 2018, which is probably the most modern facility in Europe,” said Professor Wanner and added: “While organizing various professional events in Prague, we had the opportunity to present both types of research at our university and the work of colleagues from the Water Association of the Czech Republic. It was interesting to see how our younger colleagues were engaged in the organization and how they gradually took the initiative in organizing congresses and conferences.”
