During last year, the number of conferences held in Lodz has doubled. This is data which underlines the success of the Lodz Convention Bureau, acting within the structures of the Lodz magistrate since 2013.
– In the past year there have been over 1,100 scientific conferences. Then there are corporate events, which are usually organized in hotels without public announcements – says Anna Mokrosińska, head of the Lodz Convention Bureau. – It was the most difficult year for us, because it was the first one. In the following year we intend to consolidate our position in the market and use our contacts on how to best promote and sell the great variety of meeting rooms and event services in Lodz.
The Lodz Convention Bureau was established through EU funding in the amount of 1.7 million zł.
We are particularly keen on business tourism and to support the work of those institutions that deal with the organization of congresses and conferences. We want to become a major center of business tourism, says Krzysztof Piatkowski, Vice Mayor of Lodz.
