Gdańsk after the CONVENE fair
The CONVENE fair in Vilnius (February 10-11) ended with a business success of Gdańsk for the second time! More than 70 guests visited the stand of the Gdańsk Convention Bureau/GOT.
Gdańsk has been represented at the CONVENE fair since 2012 when the first edition of the fair was held. From the very beginning, organizers of the event have focused on the high quality of meetings; this is why even agencies, tour operators and representatives of associations particularly interested in the organization of meetings in Baltic countries are invited to participate in the fair. In this year’s edition of CONVENE, more than 170 hosted buyers could get familiar with the offers of ca. 80 exhibitors, including Gdańsk.
The interest in Gdańsk and the region
Representatives of the Gdańsk Convention Bureau/GOT held more than 70 business meetings, mainly with customers from Germany, Austria, Scandinavia, Belarus, Italy and Turkey. For most of them, Poland is a new destination when it comes to the organization of business meetings. Customers’ queries mainly referred to direct flights, accommodation facilities (mainly 4- and 5-star hotels), conference facilities and offers involving the organization of team-building and incentive events. The first effect of the participation in the CONVENE fair is the preliminary enquiry concerning the organization of a few study visits within the next few weeks.
The Vilnius Convention Bureau is the organizer of the CONVENE fair.
