As a result of changes introduced this year to the Regulations of the Polish Congress Ambassadors Programme, during this year's Gala of Polish Congress Ambassadors, for the first time, besides the Ambassadors, Polish Congress Patrons will be honoured as well. The award for the Polish Congress Patron is a form of honouring and appreciating the role of a sponsor supporting a meeting or event being organised.
On 8 May this year, during the session of the Chapter of the Polish Congress Ambassadors Programme, 16 new outstanding personalities representing the scientific and business community, including 3 from Krakow, joined the group of Honorary Ambassadors of Polish Congresses! Until now, the title of Congress Ambassador has been awarded to nearly 250 people, including over 45 from Krakow and Malopolska Region.
