The 60 Million Congress will take place in The Chelsea Harbour Hotel in London 30 May – 1 June 2019. The 60 Million Congress – Global Polonia Summit is a series of internationally organized events strengthening ties of Polish communities in order to build international business relations corresponding with trends of the 21st century. Defining opportunities for future development and strengthening cooperation of over 60 million Poles around the world provides solutions that will lead to the growth of a global network of business contacts based on Polish values.
The programme of the Congress includes discussion panels with experts, business leaders, Polish government representatives, community activists, local government officials, and ambassadors. The participants take part in informal networking meetings, golf tournaments, cocktail receptions, and other special events. Besides panel discussions, each Congress session examines the ways of working together with the Polish business community and cooperating with the Polonia power network as well as analyzing the direction of growth of the Polish brand on the world map.
The first historic edition of the Congress took place in 2018 in Miami and it was an initiative of Polish businessmen, who at the time of the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining independence created a new platform to exchange ideas and develop practices that will help Polish communities grow economically and politically. In the year of 2019 six more editions of the “60 Million Congress” will be hosted on two continents and in six different cities continuing to promote the idea of an entrepreneur Polish community to a wider audience.
