The creation of an ambassadors’ network as a tool for city promotion is an initiative with major potential, which is being used in cities worldwide. City ambassadors, actors linked to the city who are also well-known in countries or entities around the world, help represent and spread local assets on an international scale as well as seize opportunities through the territory.
