The Targi Kielce Hackathon is a part of the "BioBoosters" - international bioeconomy hackathons are innovation competitions aimed at finding solutions to economic or technological challenges that support the green transformation in large and recognised enterprises. – Targi Kielce is a socially responsible company that cares about the environment.

The event finals are scheduled to take place on 10-11 April 2024 in Targi Kielce as an accompanying event to the EKOTECH Environmental Protection and Waste Management Expo. Selected entities and participants enter the final stage. 

The event allows Targi Kielce to take another step towards sustainable development and ecology. The whole MICE industry around the world is waiting for ecological carpet solutions. - Targi Kielce Hackathon offers the opportunity to solve one of the exhibition centres and event organisers' essential issues related to the green transformation. Responding to the challenge is not just a one-off reaction; it is a response to the needs of the entire meetings industry. The solutions will be used for years. Discussion at the UFI Global CEO Summit, which brings together the heads of the most important trade fair centres in the world, has demonstrated, that we have joint objectives. The global exhibition industry's objective is sustainable development and environmental protection. The important topics discussed at the convention related to the issue of carpets used in exhibition centres. Hundreds of thousands of square meters are used annually, says Andrzej Mochoń, PhD., president of Targi Kielce.

Approximately 100,000 square meters of carpets are ordered and used yearly at Targi Kielce. Polypropylene carpet materials are used at expos stands and in passageways between booths. Over 300,000 visitors to the Kielce exhibition and congress centre stroll on the carpeted expo surface every year. After each event, used carpets land in a container and end up in the trash.

All Polish innovators are invited to participate in this hackathon, including entrepreneurs, scientific and research entities, academic and student teams, and individuals from the Baltic Sea Region, i.e., Poland, Germany, and Scandinavia. The Targi Kielce Hackathon winners boost their prospects to develop and produce their products in cooperation with the Kielce exhibition and congress centre.
