The event, which aims to demonstrate "how new marketing can grow the competitiveness of Polish companies", will take place in Warsaw on April 9th.
Among the speakers is Sir Martin Sorrell, founder and CEO of WPP, the world's largest communication services group. It will be Sir Martin's first visit to Poland.

Part of the conference will be devoted to digital innovations, particularly in the public sector.
Sir Martin, whose ancestors came from Poland, Ukraine and Romania, has often spoken of the growing importance of the Central and Eastern European region to the marketing services industry. The CEO of WPP said: "At a time when Western Continental Europe is under considerable economic pressure and likely to continue to be so, the opportunities presented by Central and Eastern Europe, particularly Germany, Poland and Russia, are extraordinary and of great interest to WPP."
Witold Jankowski PhD, editor-in-chief of HBRP and president of the ICAN Institute, said: "Central and Eastern Europe is a market becoming ever more important on the world stage. Sir Martin's global perspective on current trends in marketing communications will be of special interest to business leaders in Poland.
