(GTO)show in London!
The Gdansk Tourism Organisation held a unique roadshow in early December. Why unique? Because it took place in the heart of London!
Local tourism, incentive and event industry companies were invited to the Hilton London Tower Bridge hotel to meet with us.
Our main goal was to promote Gdansk as a new destination for the British market to organise conferences and congresses, events and MICE. Representatives of 14 companies attended the meeting: Hotel 4meetings, Turnedee.com, Top Events Ireland and UK, Griffins Estate LTD, DPT Legal, M.I.C.E, Travelling Weasel, Group Stay, DMS Advantage, Vosaio Travel Group, Expedio.com, Miramar Travel Ltd., Gill Butler Events and ZOPOT London.
In the nearly two-hour meeting, the Gdansk and Pomerania provinces were presented both in terms of tourism and business. We presented our offer of conference venues, accommodation and flight networks, as well as the opportunities offered by the Gdansk Convention Card. After the main presentation, which was hosted by GTO’s President Lukasz Wysocki, it was time for the most important part of the evening: 8 of our Polish partners had the opportunity to network with the invited guests. Event participants included:
- Hotel Grand Lubicz
- Hotel Mistral Gniewino
- Hotel Hampton by Hilton Old Town
- European Solidarity Centre
- Hotel Courtyard by Marriott Gdynia Waterfront
- Travel Gdansk
- International Gdansk Fair – Amber Expo
- Intercrac DMC
- Hotel Hilton Gdansk
At the end of the meeting, an obligatory business card lottery took place. The participants could win 3 vouchers for a stay at the following hotels: Hilton Gdansk, Courtyard by Marriott Gdynia Waterfront and Hampton by Hilton Old Town. In addition, every guest received a gift package, which included a suitcase, a fountain pen, chocolate and pralines.
After the meeting, all Polish and British attendees joined us for the informal part of the event, which took place at the nearby restaurant, Horniman at Hays.
We hope to see the results of this event soon.
