Green Light for the trade fair industry
Trade fairs and expos were put on halt over 14 months ago, with a short break in the autumn when the organisation of exhibitions was possible - This is the industry that was the business sector to stop its business operation and last to restart - says the Mayor of Kielce, Bogdan Wenta - Trade fairs stimulate economic life, the expo entre lungs for every city, the region they operate in. It is enough to mention that one zloty spent at the expo boosts 6 zlotys spending in the city on taxis, hotels, restaurants, florists and other services.
The government resolved that the trade fairs could restart on 6 June in the following sanitary regime - 1 person per 15 square meters - In fact, this means that the first exhibitions will take place in September - explains Andrzej Mochoń, the president of Targi Kielce - Exhibitions organisation is longer than just a few days. The last year full of restrictions has shown us that we are very social, hungry for personal contacts, and this is the source of my optimism about the future of the fair. Expos build trust, which is extremely important in business. Trust cannot be achieved via the Internet.
The first exhibition, inaugurating the autumn expo season in almost the entire industry, is the International Defence Industry Exhibition, which, just like last year, will be the only defence industry exhibition in Europe - Exhibitions, which were to be held in the first half of this year, were postponed until autumn, so our calendar is really packed, but the exhibitors expect to join a trade fair - claims Andrzej Mochoń.
Rafał Mazurczak- a member of the management board of Echo Investment, conforms this opinion - Trade fair mirror the business as a whole. We look forward to face-to-face meetings and international events to exhibit at and draw inspiration from. Business means relationships, contacts, face-to-face meetings, thus exhibitions will return to our calendars.
Already this evening, the act of solidarity with the exhibition industry! The expo facilities all over Poland and the most important buildings in cities will glow green. In Kielce, green Light of hope casts the buildings of the City Hall, Kielce Culture Centre, Kielce Geopark, Echo Mall, Bińkowski Hotel, Provincial House of Culture, "Zameczek" as well as the Leonardo Da Vinci Centre or in Bałtów.
