One of the most important recent congress events held in Poland was the European Congress of Culture, part of the Poland’s EU Presidency in 2011. Held in Wrocław, the Congress was attended by the ministers of culture from all 27 member states, while the concerts given at the time assembled 10 000 spectators. The concerts were a musical encounter of maestro Krzysztof Penderecki with the icon of electronic music Aphex Twin and the Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood and the events were named the most important cultural events of 2011 in Poland by the leading magazine Polityka and the Polish cultural TV channel TVP Kultura.
In 2014, event-factory was the executive producer of the EELA international labour law congress with more than 500 delegates from all over the world. This event brought us a nomination for the MP Power Awards in the Congress of the Year category.
In 2016, we delivered an annual, multi-threaded conference for the Association of Business Leaders (ABSL). Held at the newly expanded civic area of Katowice which comprises the International Congress Centre, the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Silesian Museum, the event was attended by 1000 participants who had the chance to listen to Condoleezza Rice, a former US Secretary of State, as the keynote speaker.
Event-factory was also the executive producer for a CISCO FORUM conference, TEDx Krakow, and for dozens of smaller-scale conferences and meetings.
