AITO Conference to be held in Poland

AITO, The Specialist Travel Association, will hold its 2019 Annual Overseas Conference in the Polish city of Wroclaw.

The event will be held from November 21-24 2019.

The city, pronounced 'vrots-wahf', is in the Lower Silesia region in south west Poland.

AITO chairman Derek Moore said: "After an activity-packed 2018 mid-haul conference in Ras Al Khaimah, in 2019 we are heading short-haul, to Poland's fourth-largest city, to explore its fascinating and turbulent past and its lively cultural centre.

"The lesser-known city of Wroclaw has the perfect attributes for the AITO conference and we're confident that our delegates will benefit from its authentic character, its stunning historic landmarks and striking modern structures, along with its good-value array of entertainment, bistros, bars and restaurants.

"Wroclaw also offers quirky features such as the 200 bronze gnomes dotted around the city - symbols of a dark period of history in Poland - and the romantic 'Hansel and Gretel' buildings, which appear to hold hands.

"The Polish Tourism Organisation team has been extremely welcoming and supportive, and we're delighted to be working with them and to be able to explore the exciting venues, sights and events that Wroclaw has to offer."

Delegates can fly direct from Luton or Stansted or can fly to Krakow or Katowice and take the intercity train, or they can fly from Heathrow to Wroclaw via Warsaw.

The AITO conference accommodation will be based at a five-star hotel in the city centre, a short walk from the Old Town Market Square and overlooking Slowacki Park and the surrounding National Museum, Architecture Museum.
