Abstract


An analysis of the technical facilities of conference tourism in accommodation facilities adapted for the organization of conference meetings in Poland and individual voivodships indicates significant spatial differences and a strong concentration of the potential of the technical facilities of conference tourism.

The largest number of accommodation facilities equipped with conference rooms, the largest number of conference rooms and the number of places in conference rooms are characterized by the most urbanized voivodships (Masovian/mazowieckie), Lesser Poland/małopolskie, Lower Silesian/dolnoślaskie, Greater Poland/wielkopolskie, Silesian/ślaskie, West Pomeranian/ zachodniopomorskie and Pomeranian), whose main administrative centers are the largest urban agglomerations in Poland. This confirms the general trends of the location of conference tourism and its connections with large urban agglomerations. In addition, hotel facilities adapted to perform the conference function in these voivodships have the best technical facilities for organizing conference meetings.

The weakest conference facilities, the smallest number of facilities, rooms, beds and facilities with appropriate technical facilities are characterized by peripheral and poorly urbanized voivodships (Opole Voivodeship, Świętokrzyskie, Podlaskie). The high dynamics of the development of conference tourism in Poland is characteristic, which is confirmed by the clear increase in the number of facilities adapted to perform the function of conference tourism reception, the number of rooms and conference rooms as well as the high dynamics of increase in the technical elements of accommodation facilities adapted to perform the function of the conference. This phenomenon is observable in the country as a whole and in all individual provinces.

 

Outline of content: This study analyzes the technical facilities of conference tourism of Poland's accommodation facilities in the administrative system of provinces. The problem analysis was made for all voivodships in Poland based on the data of the Central Data Bank of the Statistics Poland. In addition, an analysis of the spatial distribution of technical elements of accommodation facilities for the needs of conference tourism was carried out. The analysis of the problem was made in relation to data from 2009 and 2017.
