Leiden-based public figures from the knowledge sector and business life are stepping up for Leiden
International conferences are essentially ‘the showcase’ for outstanding performances within a certain discipline. By bringing conferences to the city, the international spotlights are on the high standards in the knowledge sector in Leiden. The contribution of Leiden’s public figures from the knowledge sector and business life - the ambassadors for Leiden - is an essential link in building the image of ‘Leiden Knowledge City’. When, after founding this partnership, the first steps were taken in asking Leiden leaders as ambassadors, the interest in joining this network turned out to be above expectations. The confidence in Leiden as an international conference city is incredibly high. All the ambassadors are ready and eager to put the knowledge which can be found in Leiden on display to the world.
