Become an Ambassador

Member of the Chapter of the Polish Congress Ambassadors Program in 2012-2015

"Poland’s accession to the European Union in May 2004 resulted in a significant increase of the number of congresses, seminars, symposia and conferences staged in our country. Its setting in the very centre of Europe puts Poland in a privileged position of a bridge between the European Community and countries that have not yet joined the European Union, especially former members of the Commonwealth of Independent States. This special status should be used not only to hold meetings connected with specific fields of science, culture and tourism – but to enliven the regional relations of Polish economy. This is an ambitious task also for more than 150 members of the National Chamber of Commerce – regional, industry and bilateral economic chambers and organisations and institutions statutorily supporting the country’s economic development. The organisation of international meetings in Poland is an excellent promotion for the country and national economy, an opportunity for effectively developing its innovations and boosting its competitiveness. In addition, it offers a chance to actively participate in the process of building a global economy, as well as to productively support Polish entrepreneurs in foreign markets, with particular emphasis on the European Union”.

”I would like to encourage everybody who considers the organisation of international conferences in our country to become acquainted with the Programme by contacting the Poland Convention Bureau of the Polish Tourist Organisation.”

"No internet, telephone or satellite transmission will ever replace contact with a live human being. Face-to-face conversations, shared experiences and direct discussions are feasible only in the case of congresses, conventions and conferences. Only they make it possible to form friendships and exchange opinions plus offer a chance of international cooperation, training of assistants, etc. On the spot, you can become familiar with the achievements of organisers, such as hospitals, research labs, buildings, etc. During international congresses you get to know (and usually also like) the host country, and this is something that no film or brochure can offer. After many years you might not remember the “latest achievements” showcased at a congress, but you will recall social gatherings, elusive aromas, candlelit evenings, parts of concerts, flavours of national dishes, and the people that you would like to meet once again”.

”The Title of Honorary Polish Congresses Ambassador is an honour, privilege, but also an obligation. It is an encouragement to take on assignments with the objective of promoting the image of Poland’s regions and achievements worldwide. By acting within scientific, economic, cultural and health organisations, and participating in international meetings, the candidates nominated for this honourable citation are spreading knowledge about their city, region and country, and fulfilling the social role of Polish Ambassador.”

Polish Congress Ambassador 2009

”Activity in the world of science requires not only conducting research, but also the promotion of one’s own achievements in the international community. The most convenient form of this promotion is scientific and business meetings. The Polish Congress Ambassadors Program gives significant help in planning and organising such meetings. The programme brings benefits not only to its organisers, but also, in the broader meaning, it promotes and publicises information about society, culture and our country. As Polish Congress Ambassador, I would highly encourage everyone to integrate activities to assist the organisation of scientific and business meetings within our programme”.

Full Professor of Warsaw University of Technology 
The President of the Polish Combustion Institute
Polish Congress Ambassador 2008

"By working in such a narrow scientific field as combustion, I am recognised and trusted enough for the international organisation to entrust me with organisation of meetings and conferences, which, besides their content value, are a great opportunity to promote Poland. It is very rewarding.”
