Poznań is a place where the energy of the New Europe is merged with the civilization of the West. A metropolis with over half-a-million residents, Poznań is situated in the most economically developed region of Poland, closer to Berlin than to Warsaw. Poznanians can be counted on – they are well-educated, competent and welcoming.

The city is focused on achieving success, grounded on a 1000-year tradition of competence. The most ambitious of projects and the bravest of visions have a chance to succeed here. The state of Poland was born in Poznań and it was also the location of the Greater Poland Uprising, the only successful armed bid for independence in Poland and a proof of the exceptional resourcefulness of its citizens.

The people of this metropolis also stand out in terms of their spirit of enterprise, renowned for generations. During the great economic crisis at the beginning of the 20th century, Poznań managed to establish itself as one of the biggest trading areas in this part of Europe. Today, the Poznań International Trade Fair Centre successfully hosts large international events including the 2008 United Nations IPCC climate conference and a 2010 meeting of the delegations of 46 ministers of culture from Europe and Asia, under the auspices of the Asia-Europe Meeting.


About University

The University of Commerce and Services (WSHIU) in Poznań is the only non-public institute of higher learning in Poland established by the Organization of Economic Self-Government. Its founder was the Wielkopolska Association of Trade and Services in Poznań – a social organization of people from Greater Poland who deal with (directly or as shareholders in business entities) economic activities in the field of trade and services. This organization dates back to 1904. In the interwar period, it contributed to the establishment in 1926 of the Poznań School of Economics, later transformed into the Higher School of Economics, now called the University of Economics in Poznan. At the beginning of the 1920s it was also one of the co-organizers of the Poznań Fair which gave birth to the Poznań International Fair.

Defined by the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO), international tourism
comprises the activities of individuals travelling to and staying at places outside their usual
permanent places of residence for a period not exceeding 12 months for leisure, business
and other purposes. Based on this broad definition, the tourism industry includes all socioeconomic activities that are directly and-or indirectly related to the provision of goods and
services to tourists. The UNWTO identifies 185 supply-side activities that have significant
connections to the tourism sector (UNWTO, 2003). These activities include the services of
various sectors, such as transportation and communication, hotels and lodging, food and
beverages, cultural and entertainment services, banking and finance, and promotion and
publicity services. Defined by this impressive network of socio-economic activities and the
infrastructure needed to support it, tourism is one of the largest sectors in the world as well
as an important category of international trade.
