Gdansk Convention Bureau promotes Gdansk and Region organizing study tours
Thursday 26, August 2010
Gdansk Convention Bureau is organizing the first study tour to Gdansk and Region (Poland) for foreign journalists and tour operators that is held from September 6th till 8th 2010.
Study tours are part of "Business tourism promotion as a trademark of Gdansk and Pomerania" project, implemented by the Gdansk Tourist Organization / Gdansk Convention Bureau and co-financed by Regional Operational Programme for Pomorskie voivodship (2007-2013). Gdansk Convention Bureau covers all costs including plane tickets, accommodation in a 4 star hotel, transfers etc. The tour will be directed by Gdansk Convention Bureau and PCO - HORN.
During each visit we will present Gdansk & Region (Pomerania) potential as business tourism destination. Forthcoming study tour will bring together a small group of Scandinavian and German journalists, tour operators, event agencies working in the Meetings Industry Sector. The intent is to provide and exchange information about Gdansk & Region, its high quality conference venues, meeting facilities, convention centres, hotels and its possibility to host international corporate events, convention and congresses. As one of EURO 2012 host cities Gdansk gained lately new multi-functional centres that are definitely worth to see and will hopefully make Region ideal meeting destination.
During each visit, participants will visit minimum 6 selected conference venues and hotels, and will take half day trip to the Museum in Malbork. During forthcoming study tour our guests will have a chance to visit: Hilton Hotel, RadissonBlu Hotel, Sheraton Sopot Hotel Conference Center & Spa, Mercure Hotel, Scandic Hotel , Dwor Oliwski Hotel, Grand Hotel and Gdansk Hotel. Will also visit Ergo Arena (multifunctional centre) and Polish Baltic Philharmonic (conference centre). Visitors will also meet Gdansk Convention Bureau team, learn about GCB work and how GCB assist international conferences. The most interesting incentives will be presented to everyone as well.
Till the end of 2011 seven visits are planned with a total number of 42 participants. Each trip will promote Gdansk and Pomerania Region as a top European business destination.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
