The EMVA Business Conference year by year visits a different European city. In 2024 Gdańsk in Poland will welcome the machine vision community.
Gdańsk is a city on the Baltic coast of northern Poland. With a population of 470,621 Gdańsk is the capital and largest city of the Pomeranian Voivodeship. It is Poland’s principal seaport and the country’s fourth-largest metropolitan area.
The city has a complex history, having had periods of Polish, German and self rule. An important shipbuilding and trade port since the Middle Ages, in 1361 it became a member of the Hanseatic League which influenced its economic, demographic and urban landscape. It also served as Poland’s principal seaport, and was the largest city of Poland in the 15th-17th centuries. From 1920 to 1939, Gdańsk lay in the disputed so-called Polish Corridor; its ambiguous political status created tensions that culminated in the German invasion of Poland and the first clash of the Second World War at nearby Westerplatte. In the 1980s, Gdańsk was the birthplace of the Solidarity movement, which helped precipitate the collapse of the Eastern Bloc, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact.
Gdańsk is home to the University of Gdańsk, Gdańsk University of Technology, the National Museum, the Gdańsk Shakespeare Theatre, the Museum of the Second World War, the Polish Baltic Philharmonic, the Polish Space Agency and the European Solidarity Centre. Among Gdańsk’s most notable historical landmarks are the Town Hall, the Green Gate, Artus Court, Neptune’s Fountain, and St. Mary’s Church, one of the largest brick churches in the world. The city is served by Gdańsk Lech Wałęsa Airport, the country’s third busiest airport and the most important international airport in northern Poland.
