Summer season in the meetings industry in Kraków
Traditionally, the summer season has never been busy for the meetings industry. In addition, COVID-19 pandemic caused the postponement of the majority of meetings scheduled for the 2021 summer season for subsequent years.
Pursuant to the decision of the Minister of Health, trade fairs, conferences and congresses can be held again since June 6th, therefore organising business meetings has been permitted with the observation of the recommended restrictions. This is why we are even more satisfied than Krakow can host the participants of several large events.
