The Program of this forum is dedicated to entrepreneurs, business community organizations, and local governments. On Sunday (September 3, 2017) there will be a day off from official meetings. From the south, the Forum’s guests can reserve previously booked hotel rooms, and in the evening visit Old Town and attractions of Tarnów in the company of a guide. On this day, the organizers provided only one orientation meeting for the invited foreign guests. The President of Tarnow will host a Polonia welcoming dinner, which will include, the Tarnów City authorities (Board, Counselors, and Directors of Departments), among others. The official inauguration of the Second Polish World Economic Forum will take place on Monday at 10:00 am at the Ludwik Solski Theater in Tarnów, at ul. Mickiewicz 4.
In the Forum Program a series of thematic panels devoted to economic cooperation between Polish companies and businesses operated by Poles abroad will be held. The possibility of supporting Polish companies in their countries of operation, along with the cooperation of organizations to promote the Polish Brand and the image of Poland and Poles in the World are planned. Individual Regions of Poland (provinces, counties, and municipalities) will have the opportunity to meet with Polonia organizations that are interested in being permanent and long-term co-hosts. Polish cities will have the opportunity to establish contacts to sign agreements within the international partner city project labeled „Sister-City”.
For two days, registered participants of the Forum will participate in B2B meetings, and Polish entrepreneurs, local authorities, and organizations will have the chance and opportunity to present their own offers dedicated to Poles, especially in terms of investment, cooperation, tourism proposals, and Health tourism (spas, medical-spa, specialist clinics).
