On 8 June 2017, in the training centre of Frankfurt's Fire Station 1, Councillor Markus Frank appointed two new Congress Ambassadors. The men, Robert Sader and Klaus-Peter Hunfeld, both professors of medicine, have shown considerable commitment to the City of Frankfurt as a convention destination. Prof. Dr. Dr. Dr. Sader is the Director of the Clinic for Oral, Dental and Cosmetic Facial Surgery at the  J.W. Goethe University Hospital, Frankfurt am Main, and Prof. Dr. med. Klaus-Peter Hunfeld is Chief Physician of the Central Institute for Laboratory Medicine, Microbiology and Hospital Hygiene at the North-West Hospital. Prof. Sader has already secured two upcoming conventions for Kap Europa, the Osteology Symposium in 2018 and the 67th Convention of the German Society for Oral, Maxillary and Facial Surgery, scheduled for June 2019, which around 500 participants are expected to attend, whilst the city owes to Prof. Hunfeld the fact that the first Rhine-Main Hygiene Day will be held at the West End Campus in October and the Annual Symposium of the Interdisciplinary Group for Laboratory Medicine and Flow Cytometry e.V., in which 300 are expected to participate, in Kap Europa in March 2018.

The conference and convention business is of great importance to Frankfurt am Main with just under 74,000 conferences and conventions attracting annually more than 4.5 million people to the city. For over five years now, an increasing number of Congress Ambassadors have been striving to raise to still greater prominence the profile of Frankfurt as a location for international conferences, meetings and conventions.

Background

The Frankfurt Congress Ambassadors initiative is supported by Tourismus+Congress GmbH Frankfurt am Main through its Frankfurt Convention Bureau, Messe Frankfurt Venue GmbH through its Congress Frankfurt department and the IHK Frankfurt am Main. The aim of the project is to further strengthen the position of the "metropolis on the Main" as a location for scientific conventions. This involves the recruitment of persons in managerial functions as honorary multipliers/ambassadors for the city of Frankfurt as a convention location.
