Poznań City

Poznań has long-time experience in organizing international meetings and events, impressive conference and hotel infrastructure, and a stimulating cultural and culinary offer. The former is modern, convenient, and centrally located and the latter combining tradition with innovation, undoubtedly making Poznań a potentially exhilarating experience for both WCTR delegates and participants. It combines a unique heritage with a rich cultural offer, lively atmosphere, and spirit of entrepreneurship. Poznań is a dynamic city, where almost 1,100 years ago, the Polish state emerged. Populated by 540,000 inhabitants, it is the 5th largest and most popular destination in Poland, located at the heart of Europe. Over 120,000 students make the city teem with life. International events play a vital role in the local economy. Since 1921, Poznań has been host to the most prominent trade shows in the country, organized by Grupa MTP (and Poznań Congress Center), the largest exhibition and meetings organizer in Central-Eastern Europe.

Poznań, the capital of the region of Greater Poland (Polonia Maior, Polish: Wielkopolska), is inhabited by over half a million well-organized, economically minded, and hospitable people. The city is located at the crossroad of the largest European transportation routes connecting Moscow with Berlin, Paris and Madrid, Budapest and Prague with the Baltic coast, and the Scandinavian Peninsula. This city location, which favours the coexistence of many nationalities and cultures, was conducive to Poznań being an important meeting place in Europe. For over 750 years, many events significant for the history of Poland and Europe have taken place in Poznań. The areas around Poznań played a crucial role in Polish history. The region, which later became known as Greater Poland (Wielkopolska), was the cradle of Polish statehood. The Cathedral on the island of Ostrow Tumski is the oldest in Poland and in 966 Prince Mieszko I was baptised here, starting Christianity as the official religion.

Greater Poland (Wielkopolska) from its very beginnings was in the sphere of West European influence. The historical process shaped the specific ethos of the region's inhabitants, which became particularly visible in the 19th and 20th centuries. The inhabitants of Poznań are well known for their flair for thriftiness, good organization of work, and rational actions. The city's economic potential is its great asset – a good and stable economic situation, a high level of entrepreneurship, and, first of all, human capital. Poznań is one of Poland's most important academic centres, with 8 large states and several private universities.
