European Meetings and Events Conference (EMEC) will be organized by Meeting Professionals International (MPI) from Feb. 1-3, 2015, in Krakow, Poland.
MPI EMEC is an annual meeting that brings together more than 20,000 planners and suppliers from more than 90 countries around the world. This is the first time the conference will take place in Poland.
“The offer prepared with the cooperation of the Ministry of Sport and Tourism, Krakow Convention Bureau, ICE Krakow Congress Centre, MPI Poland Club and Poland Convention Bureau PTO interested the association, and magical Krakow was chosen as the host city EMEC 2015,” said Krzysztof Celuch, Poland Convention Bureau, Polish Tourist Organization, and chair, Poland organizing committee.
The conference is attended by more than 300 representatives of the meetings industry. This is an opportunity for Poland to establish business contacts, which may bring tangible benefits for the country in the future. In addition to its educational value, EMEC is an event aimed at building a strong brand of a country in the international arena.
“It is a great honor for us to host such a prestigious event as EMEC 2015 in Krakow at the ICE Krakow Congress Centre. I am convinced that our city will delight its organizers and participants, and that the modern facility of ICE Krakow will meet all their expectations,” stated Izabela Helbin, director, Krakow Festival Office.
MPI prioritizes strong promotional activities for each host country, which in this case involve promoting Poland during trade fairs preceding EMEC 2015, such as IMEX, IMEX America, EIBTM and World Education Congress. The presence of Poland in social media of the association as well as the use of different MPI channels will be an additional advantage to promote Poland.
