Mission Study Tour
The idea of the Mission
The Mission Study Tour is part of the Brand Program supporting the 12 most promising and innovative sectors of the Polish economy including the yachting industry. After many years of building a strong position on the European market, Polish companies are currently expanding into non-EU markets - Russia, the UAE, the United States, China and Australia. The Polish government supports these pro-export activities in several ways. In addition to the Mission Study Tour, Polish national stands are also organized at the most important foreign fairs, where visitors can get detailed information about interesting companies from the yacht industry in Poland. Furthermore, a 360-degree film was created to effectively present Polish yachts and motor boats, both on water and during the production process. The Brand Program has been created and founded by the Polish Investment and Trade Agency PAIH, closely cooperating with the Polish Chamber of Marine Industry and Water Sports - POLBOAT.
We cordially invite representatives of the yachting industry from the United States of America and China to participate to the Mission Study Tour 2019 that will take place between 18 -20 July 2019 in Port Marina Gdynia in Gdynia, Poland.
