In 2019 the Ljubljana Convention Bureau, which operates as part of Ljubljana Tourism, founded the Ljubljana Ambassador Club.

Every month we determine the key ingredient, typical for Ljubljana, which is inspired by that month's offer at the Ljubljana Central marketTrnovska ledenka salad, Ljubljana's cabbage, yellow carrots, kifeljčar or tarragon, and many other ingredients have been writing a seasonal culinary story every month of the year. The products exposed in this way are part of the "green chain" philosophy, as they are locally grown. The vast majority of them travels to the menus of Ljubljana's restaurants from the surrounding farms, and it is these farmers who also give advice on which fruit or vegetables to promote that month. All participating restaurants are invited to offer at least one dish with a key ingredient of that month. In this way they also support local farmers by purchasing the ingredients that are in season.

Three recipes are then created every month based on the tradition of the Taste Ljubljana project, while also honouring modern culinary trends. They are created in a way that can suit different types of culinary offer: from snacks or drinks to more complex recipes and dishes. They are written is a simple manner so that the participating restaurants can upgrade them, depending on their ambitions and desires, as well as the personal interpretation of each chef.

The Culinary Calendar is a project that - in collaboration with local chefs and restaurants - tries to promote and further develop the seasonal and sustainable tourist offer in the city of Ljubljana.

The experience of the club’s members is a priceless source of inspiration, and also of entirely practical advice on how to obtain and successfully organise a major event at the international level. Stories about successfully realised events contribute to the understanding of the forms of support available to meetings organisers and raise awareness of the importance of conventions for the city and for Slovenia’s scientific and academic community.

The Ljubljana Ambassador Club is affiliated to the Slovenian Ambassador Programme, which is run by the Slovenian Convention Bureau with the support of the Slovenian Tourist Board.

Congress ambassadors offer a model which we hope will encourage young people to participate actively in international associations.
