Gdańsk Convention Bureau advances

This year, the Gdańsk Convention Bureau (GCB) will continue implementing the two major projects for which it received external funding. The first project, “The promotion of business tourism as the brand of Gdańsk and the Pomeranian Region”, involves, amongst others, the following activities:

The creation of up-to-date promotional materials, active membership in international organizations such as International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) and Meetings Professional International (MPI). Exhibiting at trade shows, the development of business tourism products, site visits for journalists and tour operators and road shows in the specific European capitals.

The project is co-financed by Regional Operational Program for the Pomerania Region in 2007-2013 (RPO WP) and is 3 years in duration, 2009 - 2011.

The second project, “Volunteers for Gdansk” is conducted in partnership with The Regional Center of the Volunteers in Gdansk. Its primary purpose is to engage volunteers to help organize events in the city. The project is co-financed by the Operational Program of the Citizens Initiatives 2010.

Both projects aim to achieve the first goal of the Gdańsk Tourist Organization's strategic development plan for 2009-2016, namely, establishing Gdańsk and Pomerania Region as Leaders of Polish conference destinations.

GCB will also organize two ICCA conferences in 2011: ICCA Research, Sales & Marketing Programme and ICCA Central European Chapter Meeting.
