WDA and Partners Sum up WOW Campaign
Targeted at foreigners, the July-August Wonders of Warsaw (WOW) campaign featured a promotional stay for one person for 280 euros and packages for two starting from 430 euros. The packages covered the cost of flight, two nights' accommodation and breakfast in one of several selected five-star hotels in Warsaw.

WDA Chairman Alex Kloszewski said, "Thanks to our partners the first Wonders of Warsaw promotion was successful. There were many foreigners interested in discovering Warsaw who took advantage of the promotional offer. We do not yet have the final results of this summer's campaign, but we can already say that WOW will be continued. We're happy to increase tourism to Warsaw, offering visitors best quality services at the best price."

The goal of the joint LOT Polish Airlines and WDA campaign is to actively promote Warsaw in Europe. The growing popularity of city breaks shows that an increasing number of people want to discover new European spots during weekends and attractive prices encourage Europeans to choose Warsaw as their weekend destination. The WDA and LOT will continue the campaign with City Break packages for the Christmas holiday season.

WOW partners are: WDA, LOT Polish Airlines, WDA associated five-star hotels (InterContinental Warszawa, Jan III Sobieski, Mamaison Le Regina, Polonia Palace Hotel, Radisson BLU Centrum Warsaw, Warsaw Marriott Hotel) and HRS (Hotel Reservation Service). The promotion is supported by the Warsaw City Promotion Office.
