Having received the Professional Incentive Travel Company certificate for 2021-2022, Polka Travel joined the group of ITCs recommended by Poland Convention Bureau of POT.
Polka Travel is a boutique agency and a passion project of two travellers, a philologist and a culture studies graduate who have been connected with the tourism industry for 25 years. Both show great enthusiasm for showcasing the enchanting and astounding side of Poland seen from a local and fresh perspective. In 2020 they launched a brand-new project, the WOWland portal presenting Poland’s most magnificent and intriguing regions along with their less-known advantages, such as the exceptional flavours of Polish cuisine.
“Adopting a human-centred approach, we create itineraries off the beaten track to explore local traditions. The trips we stage are intended to pass on our love of good food, wine, literature and the surrounding nature. The scope of our offer includes food tourism, enotourism and programmes aimed at women”, explains Majka Szura, one of Polka Travel’s owners.
Polka Travel also joined the Tourist Voucher project and its owners are known as long-time active members of industry associations, such as SITE Poland and SOIT. In 2020 they took part in fam trips staged by the Poland Convention Bureau unit of Polish Tourism Organisation (Polska Organizacja Turystyczna - POT) and act as great ambassadors of Poland both at home and worldwide.
The recommendations awarded by the President of POT are available for businesses specialising in event planning and organisation, boasting appropriate corresponding experience, technical facilities and a trained team of employees making it possible to fully implement a congress or an incentive programme.
The recommended companies can rely on active promotion through PCB POT’s actions, such as information in promotional brochures and presentations for foreign organisers, websites (including Poland Online Site Inspection) and social media. In addition, the organisers in question are invited to join undertakings arranged by POT, such as presentations, international trade shows, fam trips, workshops and training sessions.
