COMPARISON WITH THE REGION
Of all the Polish cities Krakow is the one with the greatest soul and is the most fraught with history. Being the main tourist city it has excellent conditions in place for the development of congress tourism. With the construction of the new convention centre it has also received a real affirmation. In Poland Krakow will be the destination of the new generation, which will soon be recognised as a high quality, compact and most versatile meetings destination in Poland due to the cultural heritage, new meetings capacities and because of its huge scientific potential. The activities of the Convention Bureau are a good indicator of what the destination is capable of and what expectations it can meet. Krakow’s recipe is successful and a case of good practice for other more traditional central European destinations. I expect a fierce fight among the leading Polish destinations, which is moving into its next phase. Poland boasts 17 Nobel Prize winners and considering the size of the country it has a numerous scientific community. A large part of it is concentrated in Krakow, with more congress Ambassadors working around the world. This is another plus for the future of the destination.
