Corporate events or integration events for companies… The integration programme is targeted at your company and adapted to your individual needs and requirements… An event of this kind is supposed to strengthen the interpersonal bonds, create mutual understanding in activities.

Tri-City appears as a kind of phenomenon. Three separate structures with strikingly different environments that evolved into one mega city. Gdansk, the largest and the oldest one is the cradle of history and culture of the region. Sopot, despite being the smallest one, has developed into a seaside resort and the centre of entertainment. Gdynia is the youngest, the most modern and the most prosperous city with lots of investments. All three cities are sandwiched between the Baltic Sea and the wild forests of the national park.
There are no fixed administrative borders between the cities but going from one end of Tri-City to the other (a 30 km distance) you’ll surely feel the uniqueness and singularity of each of them.
Here are our profiles:
Chief manager and creator of the JOYevent brand. He graduated from the Tourism and Hotel Industry faculty of the Univeristy of Physical Education and Sport in Gdańsk. During his studies he spent one semester in Hochschule in Bremen, Germany. He has a precious skill of building lasting relations with customers, subcontractors, and colleagues. He is not afraid of crisis situations as he has an almost innate ability to solve problems. He gained his rich experience in organising trips during many years of cooperation with Ideatour Germanus and he also mastered event management skills at the same time.
He is an experienced tour guide, massage therapist, and a yacht helmsman. In private life he is an amateur traveller and photographer and a keen yachtsman.
He joined JOYevent in 2013 and became its inseparable element straightaway. His adventure with the event industry started already during his studies and he devoted himself to it totally. He is the co-creator of many programmes. His permanent smile and energy make impossible things become possible. He knows what to do, how to do it and why – he coordinates, entertains, and if necessary he manages: work, fleet, objects, time, and warehouse. He follows the rule ‘everything can be done’, so there are not many things that can surprise him.
In private life he is a great fan of football who loves reading about the history of Poland. He uses his energy at the trainings of the Gdańsk football club SKS Polonia Gdańsk, whose captain he is as a matter of fact.

She is a graduate of the Journalism and Public Relations faculty of the University of Gdańsk. At work she likes to deal with several issues at a time, there are no hopeless projects for her. She is considered to be conscientious and meticulous – there’s nothing that will go unnoticed in her presence. She believes that success is the result of engagement, development, and honesty. When needed, she transforms into a copywriter and tries to turn some thoughts into words.
She is a fan of reportage, which she loves greatly. She adores discussions on it and making others love it too. She is keen on puzzles and atmospheric bookstores.

He gained experience in event organisation in several prestigious hotels in Tricity and finally joined the light side of the Force.

She has travel programmes at her fingernails. She can plan sightseeing and entertainment for any age group. She is in love with Gdańsk and tracks down the city’s history and mysteries with passion. She wins the sympathy of the entire group straightaway as a licenced Tricity guide.

A natural born master of logistics and logic. He has been connected with Joyevent for many years – his presence at an event is a guarantee of success. He can prepare an event even in the dark! He never says ‘it cannot be done’. He is responsible for the technical side of our events the most often as it has no mysteries for him. He is a real handyman. He will find a solution of every technical problem. At the same time he is resistant to time pressure and work overload. A multitasker. He manages a food place with really good results.

After work, he enjoys active travelling, discovering other cultures, mountain hiking and kayaking trips. In his free time he relaxes while reading about sociology and art history.
ABOUT OUR REGION:
The name of the city speaks for itself. For centuries it has been the jewel in the crown among Polish cities. However, it has always emphasized its uniqueness and the fact that it used to be called a ‘Free City’ (when outside Poland at wartime). The oldest part of Gdansk witnessed the battle with crusaders which goes back to the Middle Ages. At the turn of 16th and 17th century the city also belonged to the Hanseatic League which comprised an alliance of trading guilds that established and maintained a trade monopoly over the Baltic Sea and most of Northern Europe. At that time Gdansk was one of the richest and of the most prosperous cities in Europe. It attracted merchants and craftsmen from Germany, Scotland, the Netherlands who have left their imprints on the local art and architecture. Dluga Street, onto which Polish kings used to walk when visiting Pomerania, is the most popular street of the city. It’s along this street where the most important historical buildings are situated.
It was also in Gdansk, where the World War II began in 1939. One must also remember about the shipyard workers who, together with their leader Lech Walesa, established the “Solidarity” movement and contributed to the fall of Communism in Poland and Central Europe.
But it’s not only the past that counts. The present is as much important. Today Gdansk is a modern city frequently visited by tourists from Poland and all over the world.
There is absolutely nothing you couldn’t buy here and the most famous and popular brands have fought for their market position in this marvelous city.
Amber, a golden-yellowish rare mineral is what makes Gdansk so popular among foreigners. Amber jewellery is unique and if you wish to buy something really beautiful there is no better place in the world than Gdansk.
The city is bustling with life, swarming with restaurants, pubs and clubs. It also plays host to all cultural events and supports the entertainment industry. Dominican Fair (Jarmark Dominikanski) is one of the most famous events that attracts salespeople from the whole country who, pursuing the Middle Ages’ tradition, promote and advertise their products.
Gdansk attracts also many artists who wish to receive critical acclaim by playing on the stage of the theatre or the opera. But we mustn’t forget that Gdansk is an important seaport, which makes the city more and more multicultural.
Poles consider Sopot as the city with the highest standard of living. And this is not without a reason. A sandy beach, a deep-green forest, posh restaurants in Monte Cassino Street- everything you need within just a walking distance.
Sopot’s pride and joy is the pier, an over 500 m long wooden construction which is one of the longest walking piers in Europe. In Summer most cultural or sports events take place on the pier.
Sopot’s status as a seaside resort confirms the evocative Art Nouveau architecture that has been widely admired by the tourists and city’s residents alike.
In Sopot you can also enjoy a versatile and tempting offer of health farms or play and relax in Sopot Aqua Park.
Each August Sopot plays host to the annual International Sopot Song Festival. The Opera Lesna in the heart of the Tri-City forest is where you can watch and listen to the best artists arriving in Sopot and still feel the special atmosphere of this magic place. Today Sopot bustles with cafes, bars, restaurants and clubs. Nightlife and countless summer events is what makes this city so popular. So let yourself be mesmerized by this remarkable resort where you will surely find something for yourself.
It was only about 80 years ago that Gdynia was granted city rights but the youngest part of Tri-City has been growing and developing rapidly. As one of the most important commercial, naval and fishing port on the Baltic Sea it has become an essential part of Polish economy. It didn’t take long when it gained the opinion of one of the most prosperous cities in Poland.
As in every harbour you can see here frigates, yachts and even warships sailing into the docks. Commerce has been flourishing, the number of new companies and factories has mushroomed and the city itself is getting more and more modern. Kosciuszki Square and the boulevard are two most popular tourist attractions of the city. The latter is also the favourite walking area where you can breathe in some crisp, balmy air and hear the soothing gentle wash of the sea waves on the beach. When visiting Gdynia you’ll also have a chance to look into two ‘gems’ of the Polish fleet- two museum ships Gdynia is so proud of. These are an impressive three- mast frigate ‘Dar Pomorza’ and a destroyer- the warship ‘Blyskawica’. If you are in the square you can also visit the Oceanographic Museum where you can admire the amazing world of both: marine plants and creatures.
The beach in Gdynia hosts ‘the Summer Theatre Stage’. So if you are a theatre lover you should definitely see one of the most interesting plays of the season. In a beautiful and magic scenery, so much different from the conventional theatre stage you will feel absolutely mesmerized and hypnotized.
Water sports, beach volleyball, suntanned boys and girls- this all stands for Gdynia in Summer. But Winter and Spring in the city offer as many exciting experiences as Summer. You can still enjoy your time in best restaurants, pubs or clubs localized mostly in Swietojanska Street, which is the main shopping street of the city. Spending spree highly recommended!
