What makes Poznań stand out among other European cities is its compact nature. This means there is a mere 7 kilometers between the airport and the city center, and the main accommodation facilities, including  Poznań Congress Center and the main train station are all within a short walking distance. Another thing worth knowing is that a taxi from the airport to the center shouldn’t cost more than 3-7 EUR.








Poznań's hotel infrastructure offers accommodation in every price category and perfect conference facilities. Visitors can stay in larger, centrally-located hotels belonging to renowned chains or quieter, picturesque hotels away from the city center. It is also worth considering a reservation in one of the historic manor houses or palaces for which the Wielkopolska region is so rightly famous, or in a lakeside complex. Each venue possesses conference support facilities, therefore creating a wide range of possibilities to choose from in order to meet the conference organizer's preferences.

The conference-aimed accommodation facilities are also worth having a look - Business hotels, as well as Wellness hotels, Poznań’s exceptional Boutique hotels and Family hotels for those traveling with family.






Poznań boasts an extensive transport network encompassing tram and bus routes serviced by modern vehicles. With a timetable of service both day and night and divided into weekday, Saturday or Sunday and Holiday services, public transport is the most efficient means of getting around the city. Visitors to the city also receive assistance in the form of the electronic information system installed in vehicles, which announces the next stop -> Komunikacja miejska w Poznaniu.

In the explanation behind choosing Poznań’s candidacy, the organisers stress its historical value as one of Poland’s oldest cities, while at the same time being a inexpensive university town, with students constituting nearly a quarter of the population. A large deciding factor was also the strong international position of Adam Mickiewicz University. Poznań has hosted this range of events in the past - for example, the 2008 Climate Summit. Its good aerial communication with cities like Copenhagen or Frankfurt, as well as numerous rail connections are yet another of Poznań’s many assets. In their decision, the organisation also mentioned the location of Poznań Congress Centre, situated in the vicinity of the Old Town’s wide cultural offer, as well as many hotels and the airport.


The recently acquired events listed above only confirm Poznań’s ever-stronger position in the European business tourism market.



Poznań’s offer of conference spaces and venues is also of much validity - starting from the largest POZNAŃ CONGRESS CENTER (above) to conference hotels such as IBB Andersia or Novotel Poznań Centrum, to historical and cultural venues (below).
