  • Sponsoring the Consuls Reception provides exceptional visibility for internationally-minded individuals and organizations. This landmark event in Boston’s international calendar gathers the nearly 60-member local Consular Corps and some 200 leaders from business government, education, and the arts for a lively evening of networking, delicious light food, and drinks. Past speakers have included John Fish of Suffolk Construction, Governor Deval Patrick, Ambassador Nicholas Burns, Juliette Kayyem, and others.
  • Sponsoring the Consuls Reception provides critical support for WorldBoston, a 54 year-old nonpartisan organization which embodies the slogan, “The World in Boston and Boston in the World”. This year WorldBoston’s Citizen Diplomacy program is hosting over 500 international leaders in their fields, and connecting them with peers and professional resources in Greater Boston. And our Global Education program is offering over 40 events, such as our Chat & Chowder and Great Decisions series and our exciting high school international affairs tournament, to engage internationally-minded Bostonians in topics of global importance.
  • Sponsoring the Consuls Reception provides benefits that last all year. Sponsorships at the Diplomat level and above translate into WorldBoston institutional membership for a full year, including early access to WorldBoston events, gift memberships, deep discounts on tickets, and more.
