Consecutive interpreting

We invite financiers from all over Europe to exchange experiences from different countries. Thanks to bilateral, simultaneous Polish-English interpretation, you will easily understand foreign speakers.

Integration and networking

The great value of our congresses is also the possibility of building a network of contacts and integrating participants. During the afternoon networking session we provide the opportunity for an informal exchange of experiences.

Knowledge, experience, inspiration – these are important, but not the only advantages of the congress. Competitive advantage is also built thanks to a rich network of contacts. From the morning, participants exchange business cards and discuss during networking sessions, and in the afternoon, in a more informal atmosphere, they exchange experiences and make friends. Come and see how they will pay off in the future.



Innovation, inspiration, integration – the CIA Congress organised by ICV is the most important controlling event in Poland
