InterNations Global Awards: Ambassador Winners

Last year, over 6,400 events came to life across 420 InterNations Communities around the world. Your hosts, the InterNations Ambassadors, organize these events on a regular basis to make sure that there’s always a chance to meet other members in your community. With the 2018 Global Awards, we would like to recognize the efforts of our most outstanding volunteers who were selected based on the skills and attributes we look for when recruiting for this special role. Join us in reviewing the “best of the best” Ambassadors of 2018!

Ambassadors plan each event from start to finish: Selecting a venue and picking a date is only part of the role. Our volunteers often spend their free evenings designing innovative event themes and providing personal touches for each event.

They often must negotiate with popular venues in town to provide an enjoyable space for hosting, while also ensuring that the venue is satisfied with the arrangement and understands the InterNations mission. And while you’re enjoying the view, the venue, and the good company, Ambassadors are working behind the scenes to make sure each event goes off without a hitch. You can find them welcoming and checking in members, coordinating with bar staff, photographers, and DJs, and making sure ‘nobody stands alone’ on the night of the event.

Our vibrant offline life is made possible by our dedicated Ambassador Teams. The 2nd Annual InterNations Global Awards honors our Ambassadors worldwide for their outstanding achievements in event planning and implementation in their respective communities.

Now, we can finally announce the winners of each category.

About the Awards: InterNations HQ in Munich selected the top candidates from over 1,100 Ambassadors who hosted events throughout 2018. We narrowed the field to five nominees per category before the Global Awards jury deliberated in order to determine the winner and the honorable mention for each category.
