The expo centre - the pride of Kielce
The Kielce "Wyborcza" Daily informs: " Targi Kielce - indisputable pride of our city. We had had no expo traditions before. The expo and congress centre was created from scratch. That was the city and province authorities’ initiative. Their history dates back to 1992, when the then Kielce mayor visited the sister city of Herning in Denmark - the mayor was delighted to see the trade fair centre. Thus he came up with the idea to create a similar one in the city on the Silnica river. What was indispensable was by the Kielce voivode support - Mr. Józef Płoskonka handed over the halls of the Provincial Internal Trade Company which had been recently liquidated. The then president of Skarżysko Mesko Roman Musiał enhanced project with his original idea to organise a trade fair for the armaments industry in Kielce."
The journalists also point out to the fact that the International Defence Industry Exhibition held 1993 has advanced to become one of the most important exhibitions of this kind in Europe. We are looking forward to the plebiscite results - we know that Kielce is a "SuperCity".
