On 9 June 2016 at the Fort Sokolnickiego Arts Centre in Warsaw, the grand gala was held to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the presence of Avis in Poland. Avis is one of the world's most famous and biggest car rental brands
At the anniversary gala, Avis had the honour to host its most important trading partners, suppliers, business travel agencies, hotels, representatives of the industry media, and business organizations.
During the gala dinner, Radosław Lesiak (Avis Country Manager in Poland) summed up the past 25 years of the rent-a-car industry in Poland and presented probable directions of development of this sector of services.
The special guest of the event was Mr Piotr Kuczyński, journalist specialising in economy and financial market analyst.
The event was both an excellent opportunity to sum up the company's achievements and outline directions of its future development, and also to establish many new business contacts in a relaxed atmosphere.
The event was hosted by well-known journalist and television presenter, Marcin Prokop; an unconventional performance by the Obsession Quartet was the artistic highlight of the evening.
The accompanying exhibition prepared by partners of Avis was unique, too – it showcased the latest models of Volvo, BMW, AUDI, FORD, TOYOTA, and NISSAN - currently available (or coming soon) at Avis. The event guests were surprised by an exceptional historical model: Ford Sierra, which was the first car to be available at Avis in 1991.
A quarter of a century is a unique anniversary and an opportunity for recollections, summaries, and above all, acknowledgements. With this Avis gala we take a bow in acknowledgement of our customers, employees and partners, who, for many years, with their work, commitment and trust, have contributed to the success and position of Avis in the domestic market, emphasised Radoslaw Lesiak, Country Manager.
It was 25 years ago that the first Avis car rental offices were opened in Warsaw – at the Okęcie Airport and at the Mariott Hotel. Since then, the company has been increasing its presence in Poland. Today, its fleet is more than 2,000 cars, and Avis has 70 rental offices located in the centre of the biggest cities and at airports, with more than 250 employees.
Our strategy is ever expanding and our offer is tailored to the needs of individual clients, and this approach has proved to be effective over the past 25 years. For many years, Avis Poland, guided by the motto ‘We try harder’, makes every effort to guarantee that its services bring full satisfaction to all clients. Today, this rule is applicable to each and every one of our activities, ensuring we stand out in comparison to our competitors. Our awards are a testament that we keep on ‘trying harder’, for example the Business Traveller Award for the best car rental company in Poland and in the world, says Radosław Lesiak, Country Manager, Avis Poland.
