Representatives of facilities serving the MICE industry, Krakow-based PCOs (Professional Congress Organizers) and the hotel, restaurant and transport industries met at the 2nd KRAKOW NETWORK event in the ICE Kraków Congress Centre on the 16th of June. The aim of this initiative is to create a strong business group of entities from various sectors of the tourism industry whose activities will lead to an increase in the number of business events organised in the capital of the Malopolska region. The cycle is organised by the Krakow Festival Office – the operator of the ICE Kraków.

The meeting helped to formulate the ideas that will serve as a basis for the model of co-operation aimed at strengthening the position of Krakow on the Polish market of specialised tourism. The participants discusses the creation of a package of guaranteed promotional benefits for congress organisers and a conference support program based on support from municipal entities. They also proposed the appointment of a co-ordinator of the calendar of events handled by the Krakow Convention Bureau that are due to take place in Krakow facilities in the next few years. This will help individual players of the MICE industry to improve the offer preparation process in good advance. The issue of the change of the form of the program of Polish Congress Ambassadors, whose involvement is of key importance for the acquisition of the most prestigious international events, was also brought up.
