7th POLISH CONFERENCE “CULTURE AND TOURISM – MEETING PLACES”

The Regional Tourist Organization of the Łódź Voivodeship and the Urban Geography and Tourism Institute of the University of Łódź have a great pleasure to inform you about the next edition of the “Culture and Tourism” Polish Conference, which will be held on 6-7 November 2013 in the modern DoubleTree Hotel in Łódź.

This event, which is subsidized by the Ministry of Sport and Tourism, is the seventh one in the cycle of meetings dedicated to the cooperation of cultural institutions with tourism industry. This is a Polish forum for the exchange of opinions, an important source of knowledge on methods of creating and improving cultural tourism products, and an opportunity to learn about the latest tourist achievements in various regions of our country.

This year’s title of the conference refers to specific places which attract tourists as well as culture lovers. They include cultural heritage objects, monuments, historical objects, and objects listed by UNESCO. Many of them are under conservator care and are used by cultural institutions, i.e. museums, galleries, or community centres. Meeting places also include objects which are constructed nowadays, i.e. scientific centres which promote knowledge and expertise or entertainment places visited by people at all ages and with various needs. Identification of places where tourists meet directly with culture will be the main purpose of the conference. Other important elements will include a discussion and an exchange of opinions on efficient creation of an attractive, safe, and friendly space for meetings, one which forms favourable conditions for enriching emotions and experiences of tourists in their contacts with culture.

We will inform you about the detailed programme of the conference when the recruitment of speakers has been completed (July 2013). The registration of participants will start on 15 June 2013 through an on-line application form available on the conference website.

More information, application forms for speakers, guidelines for authors, and reports from the preceding editions are available on http://konferencja2013.rotwl.pl/english

We would like to invite all people interested in the raised issues and fans of our conference. We count on the great exchange of information, opinions, and experiences.
