ABOUT THE 60 MILLION CONGRESS
The 60 Million Congress - Global Polonia Summit is an event where, through strengthening Polonia ties, we build international business relations corresponding with trends of the 21 Century. Defining opportunities for future development and strengthening cooperation of 60 million Poles living around the world to guarantee the growth of a global network of business contacts based on Polonia values, traditions, and knowledge are the main goals of the event.
The program of the Congress includes discussion panels with experts, business leaders and Polish government representatives, local governments, and ambassadors, as well as an informal section devoted to networking. Participants also might participate in a golf tournament, cocktail meetings, and other special events that will take place during the Summit. Besides discussion panels, each Congress session examines the direction of growth of the Polish brand, and it's strategic position on the world map and forms of Polonia cooperation, paying particular attention to the economic dimension.
The first edition in the history of the 60 Million Congress took place in 2018 in Miami. It was an initiative of a group of Polish businessmen, who at the time of the 100th Anniversary of Poland's Independence, created a new platform for the exchange of practices and ideas of future economic growth with and for the members of the Global Polonia community residing all over the world.
Three editions of the 60 Million Congress were held in 2018. This year, six new editions are being held in six different cities in four countries and two continents. We trust that our focus on Polonia engaged in business will bring greater audiences to the fore.
Eight editions of the Congress are already being planned for 2020. The 60 Million Congress will be held in various cities around the world, including Miami, Milan, Berlin, Chicago, Toronto, Rzeszów, New York and London.
We aim for the 60 Million Congress to become a new international and intergenerational communication platform. Our mission is for it to contribute to the integration of the Polish diaspora around the world and we hope that our vision will strengthen our ties beyond business.
