GCB Participates In The National Leader Of Innovation Competition

Gdansk Convention Bureau will for the second time apply for the National Leader of Innovation title. The bureau will submit their project 'Volunteers for Gdansk' in the category 'Innovative European Union Project.' Only projects financed by the European Union or other irreclaimable, foreign fund sources will be taken under consideration.

The idea behind Volunteers for Gdansk is to create a database of volunteers who would help meeting organisers during a conference or any other event. The main goal of the project was to create a friendly environment for professional meeting organizers and thus, increase the number of events held in Gdansk.

"The "Volunteers for Gdansk" programme is getting very popular. Since the creation of the volunteer database in August 2009 we registered almost 500 people,” said project coordinator Agata Walczak. “There are people of every age, eager to help and not afraid to take on challenges."
