Dating back to 2006 when Convention Bureau Wrocław launched it as part of the operations of local Ambassador Clubs, Wrocław Congress Ambassadors programme complements its nationwide Polish Congress Ambassadors counterpart.
The goal of the Polish Congress Ambassadors Programme is to secure new congresses for Poland and effectively help Poles active in the structures of international organisations, e.g. scientists and professionals representing various industries, draw events of this kind. The initiative is run together by Polish Tourism Organisation (Polska Organizacja Turystyczna - POT) and the nongovernmental Polish Conference and Congress Association, with regional support offered by operations of local Ambassador Clubs.
The group of Wrocław ambassadors continues to grow, with the Ambassador Club now composed of 49 members. Active throughout the entire year, Wrocław Congress Ambassadors are involved in planning and participate in many noteworthy events. The title of a Wrocław Congress Ambassador is meant to be a distinction confirming efforts aimed at promoting the city as the best destination for conferences and congresses. Thanks to the Programme, Wrocław is now securing more and more international events dedicated to highly diverse subject matter.
