Polish people’s responsible behaviour, compliance with safety rules, and a growing number of those vaccinated against COVID-19: all this enables us to look to the future with optimism. If the favourable trend of decreasing new infections continues, it will become possible to ease the pandemic restrictions.
In the new reality of pandemic, the possibility to organise B2B meetings, congresses and conferences is largely reduced. The events are held online, whereas the hybrid meetings are still waiting for their moment because of travel restrictions.
In such challenging times, the Kraków Convention Bureau decided that consistent #KrakówTheHostCity brand building, promotion and communication should be found among its main priorities.
Kraków is the first city in Poland to offer a modern tool for keeping the records of non-hotel lodging facilities, such as hostels, apartments, and guest rooms. The municipal app, called Krakowskie Obiekty Noclegowe (eKON), is now available in two language versions (Polish and English) at ekon.um.kraków.pl
For the sixth time, the ICE Kraków Congress Centre has been singled out for distinction at the international Meetings Star Award competition. Just like last year, ICE Kraków was honoured with a gold quality certificate in the Convention Centres category, obtaining a score of 4.91 on a 5-point scale.
International Tourist Guide Day has been celebrated for over 30 years. On this occasion, an online meeting will be held on 5 March at 5 p.m. to discuss important topics in the field of tourism and tour guiding.
Kraków came second in four categories, and fifth in terms of “cost effectiveness” in the fDi Intelligence 2019/2020 ranking of the best Polish cities prepared by experts from this industry magazine owned by the Financial Times – a prestigious British newspaper of international renown.
We look into 2021 with great hope, believing that we will meet you soon at the International Exhibition and Convention Centre EXPO Krakow. Related to the change in the functioning of the company, caused by the decision of the Ministry of Health to transform the facility into a temporary hospital, we invite you to the KRAKDENT® International Dental Trade Fair later than usual - on June 10-12, 2021.
The International Book Fair in Kraków® attracts thousands of readers from all over the country. For three days, the KRAKDENT® trade show turns the city into a capital of the dental industry. ENOEXPO® stimulates the taste buds of wine connoisseurs from the farthest corners of the world. Who stands behind some of the largest industry events in Poland?
The current situation is forcing us to take action; action that inspires and has the power to drive change. We seek new solutions in our fight against COVID-19 and aspire to minimise the social and economic impact of the pandemic.
The foundations of the KRAKÓW NETWORK Protocol, announced in December 2020, are providing a clear model of cooperation between business partners in the new realities, based on joint risk management, innovative business models, driving Kraków’s competitive advantage through engaging local representatives of the meetings industry, and digitalisation and promotion of hybrid events. Kraków is preparing to launch an offence on the MICE sector in the coming years.
