"I have been participating in Roadshow Polska conferences for a few years. Each conference represented a very high level as to its contents, selection of topics proving an extensive knowledge of presented issues and most up-to-date trends as well as its organization. Participation in these exceptional events was an opportunity for participants to gain unique knowledge and qualifications in an elite circle of international and the best Polish experts. That is why the Roadshow conferences have become an inherent part of the calendar of the most important events which you simply need to attend."
(Director/Ernst & Young)
"One of the best organised conferences, in terms of speakers, branding, interest and attendance. The format was outstanding....
I attend several global confernces every year, but have yet to experience something like this. It was very effective in form and function.
Everything went super !"
(Asia Pacific Practice Leader/HEWITT Associates India)

Such meetings are much needed, as they foster the exchange of experiences among entrepreneurs, cities and regions have an opportunity to get better acquainted with expectations and problems of the investors. Conversations will most certainly result in many new projects. Roadshow is a great initiative, due to which Poland may gain many new projects, particularly in the field of modern technologies and services."

(Secretary General/Polish Chamber of Commerce)
"Participating in an event such as the IV Outsourcing Forum is not only an opportunity to learn the latest trends in the outsourcing industry but also a ground for exchanging experience and views. I am glad that the City of Łódź could actively participate in the Forum, which gave us a chance to show our strengths and discuss ways to gain new investments. Such opportunities to talk about outsourcing in Poland should be more numerous, it is an excellent chance to share experience and confront them with others.
(Director/The City of Lodz Office)
"I am glad I could participate in the IV Outsourcing Forum and take part in interesting discussions. Conferences organized by the Roadshow Poland always become an opportunity to meet professionals and allow for the clash of various perspectives and viewpoints. I like the form of debates, which are in fact alive discussions maintaining a high level of their contents at the same time."
(Executive Search & Business Development Director)
"I perceive forums activity as an initiative involving the outsourcing service providers in building their environment and promoting outsourcing contracts and services. The forum presents the Best Practitioners among suppliers, promotes and develops the economy subjects' organizational culture by promoting outsourcing, a solution which is an opportunity to increase business value.
A separate event accompanying the Forum I value is the Almanac of Outsourcing. the recipients of services have a chance to get to basic information about suppliers -outsourcers of various industries in a simple manner. I believe that this initiative will be maintained and the publication will be received by managers as a practical and useful for outsourcing services purchase.
One of the forums' elements was a discussion among the participants on the outsourcing risks emerging in times of crisis. On the other hand, equally interesting were the information about development opportunities (presented on the basis of a survey) of the outsourcing services sector related to development and economic potential of cities and regions of our country.
I look forward to the next Outsourcing Forum."
(Managing Partner/ Grant Thornton Frackowiak sp. z o.o.)
"The IV Outsourcing Forum is the perfect place to meet representatives of various sectors concerned with broadly defined topic of outsourcing. From Bydgoszcz viewpoint participation in this kind of event was a great opportunity to promote our city as the best place to invest BPO sector capital, and allowed to establish many valuable contacts. I recommend participation in the next Outsourcing Forum and other events organized by Roadshow Poland.
(Deputy Mayor of Bydgoszcz)
"I am glad I was able to hold a conference "Three Cities - Three Rivers". Roadshow Poland did a very good job, which our busy and tired government has no time for. It has integrated practitioners, theoreticians, professionals, local government, policy makers and government officials around the gigantic project Euro 2012 is. It was enough to listen to what the representatives of several Polish cities, lawyers involved in the PPP and transporters said, to know, what and where in the law should be improved. Nobody asks too much of the authorities - to simplify the rules and not interfere - is a task for the government, and the rest of the free market can handle, which will be reflected in the initiatives formed during the conference."
"The conference is an excellent forum for networking with knowledgeable people of high caliber. The presentations were concise and provided professional insight into polish developments. Highly recommended."
(Partner/White & Case)
"The conference held in London gave al participants an overview of why business partners in Poland should be interested to increase their relationships within Poland. I trust that the information provided was helpful to all to make some of business decisions."
(CEO/Kredyt Bank S.A.)
"The conference "Poland's Roadshow in the UK - New Business Perspectives" organized by the Roadshow Poland was a unique ground for exchange of experience among businessmen in Poland and Britain, which will certainly raise the level of interest of foreign investors in our country. "
Marek K. Kosycarz
(Corporate and Regulatory Affairs Director at British-American Tobacco Poland)
"Judging by the number of participants and by the companies represented at Roadshow Portugal, the Portuguese investor's interest in Poland is enormous, and we should take advantage of that. From the bank's perspective it was a very useful event, which hopefully will not only result in new contracts but also in very positive media for Poland."
"For some time I had been searching unsuccessfully for a company that would be interested in building an aqua park in Mszczonow. Unbelievable but at Roadshow Frankfurt I have found such an investor."
(Mayor of Mszczonow)
"Roadshow was a great success, as representatives of many different industries met and exchanged views. The participants got to know many interesting data which simply showed, that Poland shall be able to be the leader of the pack of all new EU Accession states."
Sven von der Heyden
(Chairman/ Von der Heyden Group)
"Such a forum enabling exchange of outsourcing experience and forecasts as the one presented at the "Outsourcing"conference has surely been lacking in our country before. This event, in view of its broad thematic scope, fully professional arrangements for the conference, and participation of numerous experts in the field of outsourcing, simply calls for being labeled as a Congress of Outsourcing, and for being held on a regular basis."
"The conference presented us with a unique opportunity to make ourselves familiar with the latest trends in the outsourcing market - both global, and Polish - to exchange opinions with other representatives of the sector."
"This conference contributed to increasing our knowledge of outsourcing, and helped us to show Poland as a country which, like in the model of Shared Services Center IT for Lafarge, has a huge potential in presenting offers competitive not only in terms of their prices, but also in terms of quality. By inviting interesting guests and lecturers, Businss Point conferences are likely to become meetings of professionals, businessmen, and representatives of governmental organizations which have obviously still got a great deal of work to do so that Poland could turn into a European service paradise."
(Outsourcing Engagement Manager/HEWLETT PACKARD)
"I was honoured to participate in the Conference. In my opinion the issues which have been raised at the conference are important to this sector of the service market both in Poland and globally.[...] I should like to acknowledge the work done by the organizers who spared no effort to prove equal to the task, and who were perfect down to the smallest detail in their arrangements for the conference."
(Sales and Marketing Director /IMPEL)
"Looking at the number of participants and representatives of companies there is a great interest in outsourcing in Poland for both providers and recipients. It increases every year, as is demonstrated by the number of concluded outsourcing contracts and assumed CUW. From the point of view of service providers it would be interesting to see what kind of services are provided, the latest marketing research and the activities of the competition. Service providers were also interested to know the legal capacity to invest shared service centers in Poland and incentives associated with it. Such conferences are most needed as a ground for exchanging experience and ideas, but also a promotion of new industries which can bring new and exciting investments using potential human resources to Poland. To gather such distinguished guests and listeners, you need professionalism and enthusiasm, which Roadshow Poland does not lack. This conference has confirmed once again, this is a company that can organize such events successfully."
