President's welcome letter


Dear Reader,

it gives me great pleasure to present the first edition of Poland: Online Site Inspection 2020, a comprehensive online guide for meeting planners. It allows event organisers to interactively and individually explore the many congress, conference and event facilities Poland has to offer – from anywhere in the world and at any time.

Official international statistics confirm that Poland is a safe and friendly country. Every year it hosts more and more meetings dedicated to culture, science, politics, sports and business.

The growth of the meetings industry is among the key promotional priorities of the Polish Tourism Organisation, whose structures have included the Poland Convention Bureau (PCB) since 2002.

Today Poland has at its disposal all the assets required for the meetings sector’s intensive development and for drawing more international events of all scope. Among them mention is certainly due to state-of-the-art hotels, numerous conference and exhibition centres, unique venues, first-rate transportation infrastructure, as well as organisations and companies ready to provide professional services aimed at business meetings in all size groups.

Intangible goods, cultural offerings, unmatched ambience and atmosphere all constitute major high points of Polish cities seeking the attention of tourists, meeting organisers, and investors.

Our meetings guide is an introduction to the conference and events potential of Poland. It contains information about the best and most highly recommended venues and service providers operating in Poland. In addition, we would also like to encourage all meeting planners to contact the regional and city convention bureaux – local experts who are happy to help with any MICE-related request.

I wish you a pleasant virtual journey through Polish cities and regions, and many successes in staging meetings and events in Poland.

Rafał Szlachta
President of the Polish Tourism Organisation
together with the Poland Convention Bureau Team
