Management Board 2024-2025

Agata Gościńska

Agata graduated from the Management and Marketing Faculty of Stanisław Staszic University of Science and Technology (AGH) in Krakow, and is a member of prestigious associations, including SITE and LBC.
A long-time practitioner (in the business for 22 years) and a passionate traveller, who considers Viventum to be the greatest success of her lifetime because not only can she explore the most distant corners of the world but also show them to others from a perspective which is not otherwise available!

Agata began her involvement with the business in 2006. She had been working in the hotel industry for 16 years when one of her customers said, People adore you and you love travelling – make this passion your life’s work!. It was then that Agata resigned from her position as the head of a hotel and embarked on her own business journey. Since then her travels have become more and more intensive and all the places she visits serve as an inspiration for her subsequent unique projects.
Agata has been to every place she takes her customers to. Having visited all the continents, she is fascinated most of all by Asia.
Her greatest love has always been Spain – its climate, people, cuisine and, above all, the more off-the-beaten-track parts of the country, which she likes to explore.

Her many years of travelling, particularly to unique and exotic destinations which have not yet been fully discovered, translate into an exceptional know-how that she employs in the projects and works of Viventum.
Agata has received numerous nominations to industry awards, and she is also the expert in the field of meetings industry recognised by both general and sector-specific media.
