Experience with the Ambassadors Programme


Antoni Torrens i Jover – European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC)

It was a very positive experience for me taking part in the Associative FamTrip of the Catalunya Convention Bureau in May 2019. It was a very productive trip and perfectly organised. As a member of the Ambassadors Programme I would like to be able to organise a congress in Catalonia with the support of the CCB. The European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC), of which I am Treasurer and member of the Executive Committee, represents 25 European countries and more than 7,500 researchers and organises two congresses every year, distributed across Europe. What I have seen and experienced on this trip around Catalonia has enabled me to confirm that we have great infrastructures, modern facilities and an excellent tourist and congress offer, and not only in Barcelona, but also in other areas such as Tarragona, Reus, Sitges, Lleida, Cardona, Girona and Lloret-Costa Brava. If to all this we add teams of people who are very capable, professional, cordial and with a profile clearly directed at the client, then the offer becomes even more attractive. 


Meritxell Teixidó – Universitat Autònoma of Barcelona (UAB)    

Just a year ago I came to form part of the Ambassadors Programme. An experience with which, at the hand of the Catalunya Convention Bureau, I have been able to know better the potential of the Catalunya brand for the organisation of events on a world scale. I feel our tradition and culture, a key ingredient that I wanted to include in the scientific congress I am organising for September 2020 in Sitges.

The 36th European and 12thInternational Peptide Symposium of which I am the Symposium Chairperson, will be the occasion where the approximately 800 delegates from around the world come together for a week in Sitges, sharing the most relevant scientific results in the field of peptides, from their preparation to biomedical uses and in the field of new materials.
Moreover, it is also undoubtedly a privileged balcony to discover Catalonia from, our research, culture and traditions, thus giving the aroma that I want the congress to have.
