The Ambassador's Club
of the Société du Palais des congrès de Montréal has awarded Dr. Suong Van Hoa
the title of Ambassador by Appointment, as well as the Agora Trophy, in recognition of their appreciation for his active and essential support. Thanks to Dr. Hoa, the 19th International Conference on Composite Materials will be held at the Palais des congrès in July 2013, bringing thousands of experts on composites to Montreal.
Created in 1985, the Club brings together influential and dynamic men and women who, through their professional activities and associative involvements, have been instrumental in bringing one or several large-scale events to the Palais. The members of the Ambassadors' Club attract the attention of decision makers worldwide as they strive to advocate the city and the Palais as a premier convention and exhibit destination. They sit on selection committees, which also enables them to play an active role in advancing the Palais' reputation among influential circles all over the globe.
Dr. Hoa will be officially honored during a gala on Thursday, October 6, 2011. The special event will bring the business and academic communities together to recognize the essential involvement of local champions in attracting large-scale events and the contribution of universities to business development.
