Poznań - city of congresses and conferences

Poznan is a city popular among associations to organize international meetings. Below we present events organized over the last years, which confirm the city's growing position on the business tourism market.

 

Poznan wins mainly thanks to the enormous possibilities and location of the Poznan Congress Center, located in close proximity to the airport, hotels and many cultural and gastronomic offers of the Old Town.  The organizers often emphasize the historical value of Poznan as one of the oldest cities in Poland and an inexpensive university city, where a quarter of the population is made up of students. The strong international position of Adam Mickiewicz University is also of great importance. Good air communication with cities such as Copenhagen, Frankfurt or Amsterdam and railroad connections are other advantages of Poznan.
