When the first STP Winter Event was organized in February 2012 only 9 people participated. But every year the event has grown and this time no less than 180 people – of which 60 were from Norway and Sweden – took part.

The event took place from the evening on Wednesday, February 11 until the morning of Friday, February 13. We stayed at the 5-star Mikołajki Hotel by the Mazurian lakes.

As usual the event was divided into three parts:

  • The professional program, which included a summary of STP´s strategy, a TV talkshow to discuss important topics and 19 different presentations for this year´s STP Awards.
  • Team-building activities, which included snowmobiles, dog sledding, hovercraft, cross-country skiing, spa and more
  • A party. The evening started with an elegant dinner, continued with the presentation of the STP Awards (5000 PLN to each winner) and ended with dancing, drinking, talking and partying in the club.

Here are some snapshots from the event 🙂
