The Polish meetings sector was showcased at the Meeting Matters industry workshop held at Villa Empain in Brussels for more than 70 association representatives (planners of conferences and congresses) from the Belgian market.
This year’s Meeting Matters industry workshop in Brussels is already the third edition of the event that each year grows in popularity. The main idea behind attending the workshop is to present the Polish meetings industry in individual talks, discuss the possibilities of staging events in Poland, as well as draw attention to activities of the Polish meetings sector.
“The exceptional formula of Meeting Matters makes it possible to exchange contacts between European convention bureaus and selected meeting planners representing Brussels-based international associations, all in a single evening. This is an excellent opportunity for an invitation to Poland, especially that in a survey half of the participants declared their interest in our country. We place emphasis on professionalism, safety, attractive flight connections, obviously a diversified price offer, as well as dynamically operating research centres and local associations”, sums up Aneta Książek, Chief Conference Expert with Polska Organizacja Turystyczna (Polish Tourist Organisation).
In addition to Poland, this year’s list of attendees included representatives of Estonia, France, Germany, Switzerland, Malta, Great Britain as well as Helsinki, Porto and Vienna.
