POT presentation at a session held by a team of the Ministry of Internal Affairs
Wojciech Ścibor, leader of the “Poland See More - Weekend at Half Price” project, discussed the first effects and outcome of the campaign. The presentation, which contained also information about the origin of the undertaking, was given at a forum held by a special team supervised by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration.
On 16 October Wojciech Ścibor, Deputy Director of the Department for Tourism Product and Regional Cooperation at the Polish Tourism Organisation (Polska Organizacja Turystycza - POT), took part in a session held by a team launched for the promotion of Poland at the self-government and civic level, and working under the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration.
In the course of the meeting Wojciech Ścibor explained the origin of the conception and purposes of the campaign, and summed up the first effects of its third edition.
Listeners attending the session reacted extremely favourably. Ścibor spoke, i.a. about the fact that “Poland See More - Weekend at Half Price” is addressed to the tourism industry and managers of tourist attractions as well as individual tourists, who at this particular edition – 6-8 October 2017 – could benefit from the specially prepared 50% lower prices of tourist and tourism-related services across the whole country.
The prime objective of the campaign is to present nationwide tourist offers and encourage Poles to spend more leisure time away from their place of residence and take advantage of tourist highlights and services throughout the country, also outside the main vacation season.
The mission of the campaign is to create conditions for learning about, and enhancing passion for, tourism, culture, customs, history, historical monuments, attractions, trails, religion, Nature, geography, etc., and for discovering the national identity of our ancestors and the Polish past.
The campaign’s third edition broke the record number of involved entrepreneurs, which this year totalled 562, i.e. 100 more than during the spring edition of “Weekend at Half Price”.
