ÅCB’s Conference Ambassador of the Year
Klubbhuset Pelaren in Mariehamn is ÅCB’s Conference Ambassador of the Year 2016. Åland Convention Bureau has initiated the Conference Ambassador of the Year Award to reward a person or organization that has contributed in highlighting Åland as a conference and events destination.
This year we have awarded Klubbhuset Pelaren / Åland’s Fountainhouse to the ambassador for hosting Fountainhouse Network’s annual spring conference that was participated by over one hundred delegates in 2016.
This conference is a perfect example on how a small organization can stand for meeting arrangements and invite its network for a conference in the Åland Islands.
Welcome to contact us for a conference for your network!
