Some of Warsaw’s recommended venues for meetings include:
Hotel Bristol is the oldest hotel in Warsaw and was founded by Ignacy Paderewski – world recognized composer. The exceptional nature of the hotel comes from its combination of subtle art déco elegance and XXI century modernity. The hotel is situated on the “Royal Route”, near the Old Town, the Royal Castle and the National Theatre. Since 1901, Hotel Bristol has hosted Warsaw’s most important events. The banquet salons offer an extraordinary experience, with contemporary comforts and conveniences in a distinct venue with artistic heritage.

There are also smaller meeting rooms (approximately 50m2 each) on the ground floor. The building has a heliport on the roof.
Sound Garden Hotel

The hotel’s designers used only natural and high-quality materials like wood and glass, all rain water is reused to better protect the Earth, and only natural cosmetics are available for guests.

Museum of Warsaw
It is as unique as the city itself, and with strikingly similar stories –rebuilt from the rubble after WW2. The recently renovated Museum of Warsaw is housed in eleven tenement buildings entered on the UNESCO List of World Heritage. The museum offers excellent spaces to rent, suitable for special events such as conferences, seminars, film shows, dinners or cocktails, as well as for some exclusive intimate VIP meetings. Space is available in the museum’s main building at the Old Town Square, as well as in other departments.
The Praga Museum of Warsaw
The Praga Museum of Warsaw deals mostly with documentation and research, but the people of Praga have generously donated many interesting items to the museum’s collection. As well as the exhibitions, the museum also organises workshops, film screenings and lectures. The historic annex boasts pre-war mural paintings that once decorated Jewish prayer rooms. Through cooperation with local activists, organisations and artisans, the museum has become an informal forum of the right bank of the city.
The Warsaw Convention Bureau is exhibiting at IBTM Barcelona from November 28-30, 2017. The Bureau team will be ready to provide information at the Poland national stand, D80.
