Project description: The project’s main objective is the appraisal and monitoring of the economic influence of the meetings industry on Krakow’s economy, using good practice from Switzerland. The project involves implementing the objectives of the Partnership Fund by promoting, creating and enhancing the partnership between Polish local government units (the Office of the City of Krakow - project leader) and institutions (the Foundation of the Krakow University of Economics and the Krakow Festival Office - partners) and Swiss institutions (ITO - partners) through the exchange of good practices and know-how.

The aim of the project is to analyse, evaluate, and monitor the influence of the group business meeting industry on Krakow’s economy. In doing so, the project will draw on good practice fostered in Switzerland.

The project seeks to meet the objectives of the Swiss-Polish Cooperation Programme Block Grant’s Partnership Fund through a mutual exchange of good practice and know-how, which in turn serves to promote, create, and enhance the partnership between the units of the Polish local government (Krakow’s City Council), Polish institutions (the Foundation of the University of Economics in Krakow and the Krakow Festival Office), and Swiss entities (the Institute of Tourism at the University of Applied Sciences).
