PTWP Group, an organizer of the European Economic Congress, confirmed on Thursday, that the seventh edition of the event will take place in the International Convention Center. All debates of the congress will be held in the building.
For the first time in the congress’ history all of over 100 sessions, meetings and accompanying events will take place in a one, single place, without the need to leave the building. „Katowice received an ultra-modern facility that added a metropolitan character to the capital of the Silesian voivodeship. As the organizer of the largest business event in Central Europe, we have been waiting for such place since the first edition. The European Economic Congress, to be held in the International Convention Center, means a completely new quality” – says Wojciech Kuśpik, chairman of the PTWP Group.
The total usable area of the ICC amounts to 34 899 sq. meters. The largest and most spectacular part of the building is a multifunctional hall covering the area of 8 000 sq. meters, where 12 000 people (standing arrangement) or 8 000 people (sitting arrangement) can stay at one time. The hall will be the main location of the congress this year. An inaugural session will be organized in one of three parts of the hall. The organizer expects about six thousand quests. A banquet area of 1 200 sq. meters, auditorium hall for 600 seats and 18 conference rooms will be put at attendees disposal as well.
The International Convention Center is located on Olimpijska St. in the area of the so called cultural district. An occupancy permit was given for the building on 5th of March this year. The e-sport world championships Inter Extreme Masters and Intel ESL Expo Katowice are now taking place in the ICC (12th-15th of March).
