Welcome To Warsaw
Warsaw

This year’s Food Tech Congress is taking place in Warsaw – the dynamic capital of Poland – at the trendy Praga Koneser Center. One of the most exciting cities to visit in Europe offers an intellectual feast that’s rich in history and charm.

Home to luxury retail outlets and modern skyscrapers resting next to historic libraries and museums, the city is known for the unique atmosphere that is both cosmopolitan and, at the same time, rather raw.
