ICE Krakow in Poland opened in October 2014 and is located in the centre of Krakow, just 20 minutes from the airport. This week, it is hosting MPI's European Meetings & Events Conference (EMEC) 2015, which is attended by event planners from around the world.

The venue offers more than 36,000sqm of conference space, including its Audiitorium Hall, which can hold more than 2,000 delegates. Its second-largest space, the Theatre Hall, has a capacity of 600 and a retractable floor. The 300-seat Chamber Hall can be divided to create two 150-seat halls.

ICE Krakow was in the making for more than twelve years, including seven years of design work and three-and-a-half years of construction.
