Rimini Mundi Prize: 12 new ambassadors welcome the future of international conferences

Twelve new ambassadors will enrich the “diplomatic corps” of the Rimini Convention Bureau Riviera, celebrated at the Fulgor cinema together with the Italian exhibition group by handing over Rimini Mundi Award.

“Conferences and congresses produce ever-increasing numbers, both in absolute terms and in terms of international – IEG CEO Corrado Peraboni said at the launch – This makes the offer of our leading hospitality segment even stronger during the year. I add another value, the cultural contamination that the knowledge from the conferences transfers to the territory and further enriches the city. We have rewarded “relationship champions” who epitomize teamwork; alone you can sometimes win, but if the action is carried out by a coherent system, you really act as protagonists in the global competitive arena”.

Ambassadors of the territory were welcomed on stage The Mayor of Rimini, Jamil Sadegholvaad: “I congratulate you for bringing expertise and passion to the city; you have specifically contributed to the support of our tourism industry. We are returning from the complicated year 2023, which finally returned positive numbers for our city. We are not stopping, the investment program aims to provide us with new multifunctional structures that will accompany us towards further development”.

Each of the award-winning ambassadors has therefore been a decisive figure, enriching the conference calendar of recent and future years with events that they have devoted themselves to and are worth around 50,000 visitors, helping to project Rimini into the ranks of ICCA’s first world cities that are important for its international conference activity.

The Ambassadors Club thus includes 74 personalities who, through their role in the professional field, play a vital role in making Rimini visible as a destination for national and international meetings and conferences.

The mayor of Rimini rewarded them Jamil Sadegholvaaddirector of social-health activities of Romagna AUSL Mirco Tamagnini, Alessia Mariotti President of the Rimini Campus of the University of Bologna and CEO of IEG, Corrado Peraboni. The Rimini Mundi Prize, sponsored by the city of Rimini and the Emilia-Romagna region, will return in 2024.
