The key theme of the 9th ABSL conference is "Poland. The place to grow." The host city – Poznań fits this motto perfectly. Talented people are the driving force behind its growth.
Educated and skilled specialists, a multicultural environment and a high standard of living – in addition to a developed infrastructure and convenient location – are Poznań's greatest assets attracting foreign investment to the city. Poznań is one of the largest academic cities in Poland and one of the most important locations for business in the entire CEE region.
For years, the city has focused on innovation and development of the business services sector. Favourable business conditions are created by a diversified economy with a strong start-up environment as one of its elements.
The core values of the City of Poznań are openness, co-responsibility and co-creation. The city is undergoing intensive transformations in many directions: the city centre and areas by the Warta River are being revitalised, new hotels are being built, the office market is developing dynamically, and the cultural and recreational offer is being expanded. What is the purpose of these measures? To become even more friendly for residents, tourists and investors, because it is thanks to them that the City can develop.
