The agreement between the Katowice City Hall – an investor of the ICC, and PTWP Event Center for the management of the buildings was signed on February this year for a period of 15 years. Selecting a private-sector manager for the facilities was a condition placed by the European Commission for granting subsidies for the construction of the International Convention Center.

In recent weeks, PTWP Event Center signed contracts with Colliers International, Zinel Facility Management and Impel Group. Colliers International will be responsible for managing the two buildings in terms of real estate. It will also ensure operational efficiency during the events taking place in the facilities. Zinel was chosen to care for a technical infrastructure and resolve technical issues. Companies from Impel Group are involved in security and cleaning tasks.

„Spodek and the International Convention Center are exceptional sites both architecturally and functionally. They create a unique space and provide the opportunity to organize interesting business, sports and entertainment events. Together with PTWP Event Center, we will work to make the properties the leading conference, exhibition and entertainment center in the country” – said Grzegorz Jamroziak, director of Retail Property Management, Real Estate Management Services at Colliers International.

Also, PTWP Event Center extended a contract with Hotele Diament, a hotel operator of the 3-star hotel facility located in Spodek. The agreement was extended for the next three years.

The International Convention Center and the Spodek sport and exhibition hall form one of the largest venues for conferences, congresses, exhibitions, shows and sporting events in Poland. The modern structure of the center, designed for 15 000 visitors is connected with Spodek, which can accommodate 11 000 people. The hall is one of the most recognizable icons of an architecture in Poland.
