Place:Economic Forum (in Poland)

From HandWiki

Economic Forum is an annual international meeting of economic and political elites held in the first half of September at a ski and spa resort of Karpacz, Poland. The Forum was founded by Zygmunt Berdychowski in 1992 and it is organised by the Foundation Institute for Eastern Studies in Warsaw.[1] From 1992–2019, it was held in Krynica-Zdrój. The Economic Forum is one of the most notable meetings of the political and business leaders of Central and Eastern Europe,[2] and is therefore sometimes referred to as the "Eastern Davos".[3] According to the organisers, the mission of the Economic Forum is to create a favorable climate for development of political and economic cooperation in Europe. The opinions of the Forum's speakers are often quoted by the international media and discussed by leading analysts.[4] The Forum includes political, business, and nonprofit leaders. The 29th edition of the Economic Forum[5] in 2019 was attended by 4,500 visitors[6] from 60 countries.[7]
