The Pomeranian Development Agency SA is the leader in supporting the region's businesses and an important partner for the local government in developing the regional development policy.

The MTG SA Gdańsk International Fair Co. has its new venue at the AmberExpo Exhibition and Convention Centre. It is there that many diverse events are held: trade exhibitions, conferences, seminars and training projects.
FROM PORT TO PORT
Pomorskie has two large state-of-the-art commercial sea harbours located in Gdańsk and Gdynia. The Tri-City's ports enjoy ongoing and planned investment in port infrastructure development and the construction and development of cargo handling terminals. It's worth noting the development of their logistics support facilities, namely the Pomeranian Logistics Centre in the Northern Port, the DCT2 Deepwater Container Terminal in Gdańsk and the Logistics Centre in the western part of the Port of Gdynia.
HOSPITALITY PAYS OFF
The region of Pomorskie is famous for its unique tourist assets. Its seaside location, diverse landscape, natural features and its historical and cultural heritage make it one of Poland's four most attractive tourist destinations. Pomorskie's continuously enlarged hospitality offer includes hotels, wellness centres with state-of-the-art accommodation, sports and leisure centres and a network of cycling routes or new yacht marinas. Pomorskie is the leader in long-term stays, with its promotion among tourists and the people of Pomorskie themselves handled by, among others, the Pomeranian Tourist Information Centre seated in the regenerated Highland Gate (Brama Wyżynna) in the centre of Gdańsk, collaborating with a unique and cutting-edge tourist information system, with 245 infomats located across the region.

The number of air traffic operations keeps growing – in 2013 more than 3 million passengers were checked in. The recently opened modern T2 Terminal has made it possible to increase passenger flows through the airport up to 5,000,000 per year. The Gdańsk Airport offers its customers about 50 destinations on domestic and European routes.
