The campaign

“Poland. More Than You Expected” campaign’s target groups include event organizers in both corporate and institutional sectors from German-speaking, English-speaking, Scandinavian, and Benelux countries, as well as the "New Europe" region.


It focuses on organizations involved in hosting international congresses, conferences, training sessions, corporate events, and incentive travel. Through destination guides crafted in cooperation with the largest and most recognized media in the meetings industry, the campaign showcases Poland as a communicatively accessible country with modern infrastructure, aligned with global meeting industry trends.

“Poland is a country rich in history, culture, and natural beauty. But that’s not all! (...) Poland is a place where modernity meets cultural heritage, offering countless opportunities to host events in historic venues, castles, palaces, and museums. Our cities boast state-of-the-art conference centres equipped with the latest infrastructure, making them perfect for hosting large gatherings. Poland is blessed with picturesque landscapes, mountains, lakes, and forests, making it an excellent location for outdoor events”' – says an introductory blog post on the campaign’s dedicated landing page.

The comprehensiveness of the campaign, run also on social media and in cooperation with influencers in the MICE industry, as well as its multisensory, represented on Poland's stand on IMEX America in Las Vegas and IBTM World in Barcelona (artwork, Musical Mornings and concerts with Basia Giewont and local cuisine tastings), has been appreciated by the jury of MP IMPACT Award, which nominated “Poland. More Than You Expected”, alongside two other campaigns, in the Campaign category.

More about the activities at the IBTM World trade show as part of the campaign, both on-site in Barcelona and online, can be found on the Meetings.Poland.Travel website - Let's Talk Business.


For Poland, whose impressive growth in the meetings industry was hampered first by a pandemic and then by war in neighbouring Ukraine, is a particularly important distinction. The campaign was developed and overseen by the Polish Tourism Organisation Poland Convention Bureau in collaboration with the PR agency, oLIVE media.

The winner will be announced during the MP IMPACT event on December 12th at the Copernicus Science Center in Warsaw.
