On June 24-26, 2024, the City of Bydgoszcz will host the World Canals Conference – WCC organized under the patronage and in cooperation with the Inland Waterways International. It is an annual event for inland waterways enthusiasts, held alternately in Europe, Asia and America (2019 – China, 2021 – USA, 2022 – Germany, 2025 – USA). It will give us another opportunity to continue discussion on development of inland waterways in Poland and to place in an international context.
We assume that Bydgoszcz will attract a broad pool of experts, scientists, entrepreneurs, representatives of public authorities and promoters of using inland waterways, also in terms of tourism. It will serve as an excellent platform for exchange of opinions, ideas and above all solutions applied in different countries. Finally, the WCC2024 will offer a possibility to build relations between all who use, maintain and develop inland waterways, not only in Poland.
In addition to meeting on the Brda and Vistula Rivers, participants will have an opportunity to visit other important sites of inland waterways in Poland during study trips organized within the conference.
