60 professionals from the MICE industry visited ICE Kraków
The time of the meeting: 7.15 a.m. Place: the Warszawa Centralna railway station. Direction: Krakow! On the 6th of May, 60 representatives of the MICE industry visited the ICE Kraków Congress Centre and became familiar with the conference potential of the capital of the Malopolska region during the MP MICE Tour.
The dynamic development of the Krakow MICE industry is observed carefully by customers from the Warsaw and the entire Polish market. Making use of a new railway connection between these cities, meeting planners became familiar with the event potential of the city. During their visit to Krakow, owners and employees of agencies responsible for the production and fulfilment of events and representatives of the Ministry of Economy, the Events Industry Association, the Polish Television and PKP Intercity visited the ICE Kraków – the best congress centre in Poland in 2014. The one-day site inspection was organised in co-operation with the Meeting Planner website and PKP Intercity.
According to the most recent Polish Meetings and Events Industry Report 2015 prepared by the Poland Convention Bureau, Krakow ranked first on a nationwide scale in terms of the number of events related to the MICE industry. The capital of Malopolska has the full infrastructure that can be utilised by event organisers who choose Krakow as a location for their events: the rich cultural and historical heritage, the excellent catering and hotel base, the prestigious facility meeting DMC (Destination Management Company) and PCO (Professional Congress Organiser) standards.
The huge potential and the already built strong position of the capital of Malopolska are confirmed by the result of this year's prestigious MP Power Awards competition - Krakow received as many as 8 statuettes, including awards for the best congress centre for ICE Kraków and for the Head of the Krakow Convention Bureau Małgorzata Przygórska-Skowron.
