Summary of the 4th edition of Warsaw Industry Week

On November 15, 2019, the 4th edition of the International Fair of Innovative Industrial Solutions – Warsaw Industry Week ended. For 3 days, Ptak Warsaw Expo was a place for effective meetings of representatives of the following sectors: machinery, metal processing, plastics and wood.

The fourth edition of the event left no doubts as to the fact that Warsaw Industry Week is the fastest-growing industrial fair in Poland, and above all, a great event that attracts more and more industry professionals every year. While the first day was really decent, on the second day the halls were bursting at the seams!

The fair trade is primarily a contracting event addressed to business representatives, during which all branches of the industrial sector present themselves.

During the 4th edition of Warsaw Industry Week, 13,000 visitors visited Ptak Warsaw Expo. The largest group of attendees were specialists in the field of metal products, metal and wood processing, as well as the automotive and machine industry. The participants also included representatives of the railway and aviation industries, the furniture industry and the energy sector. The dominant group were the main mechanics, engineers and technologists from the above sectors as well as the management staff.

In 2019, during the Warsaw Industry Week, visitors had the opportunity to see the offers of 378 exhibitors – it is almost four times more than the first edition of the fair! Thanks to the huge exhibition area intended for the event (45,000 m2), the companies could present themselves on the areas of 100 or even over 200 square meters, which made it possible to show machines as well as entire production systems. The unlimited possibilities of presenting your own offer ensured the comfort of the exhibitors and allowed the guests to freely see the presented products.

During the International Fair of Innovative Solutions for Industry, exhibitors took advantage of the additional Hosted Buyers program. It is an effective initiative aimed at finding new business partners and developing companies abroad. In 2019, we arranged over 400 meetings, thanks to which our exhibitors established contacts and relationships with buyers from countries such as: Ukraine, Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus.

Among the opinions on establishing new business relations, the fair met the expectations of the participants, and in terms of financial benefits – Warsaw Industry Week beats competitive events.

Many factors influence the final evaluation of an event. The key factors are: obtained leads and costs. However, seemingly secondary elements, such as: good access, large and free parking, Wi-Fi internet access, a reasonable duration of the event and the availability of full infrastructure on site, contribute to the sum of experiences and translate into a general opinion about the fair. For those planning a longer stay, catering points on site during the event will certainly be a great convenience, as well as the rich accommodation base offered by the Warsaw agglomeration.

“We evaluate the fair very positively. Lots of professional, specific business contacts, both small and large corporations. I think this is one of the best events I have had the opportunity to attend and it is worth coming here!”- Adam Piszczatowski, Project Manager Bosch Rexroth Ltd.

“The Warsaw Industry Week fair consisted of hundreds of intense meetings. The collaborative robot solutions enjoyed the greatest interest, we were visited by customers from all over Poland, from Gdynia, through Krakow and Rzeszów. The companies see a great need for robotization. We will see you next year!” – Radosław Matiakowski, CEO of CoRobotics LTd.

The fair schedule included a rich program of accompanying events. Visitors had the opportunity to participate in numerous workshops, product presentations, examples of implementations and business cases. In 2019, during the Main Conference “Instruments of Industry 4.0”, participants learned about examples of implementations of modern technologies and innovations in Poland.
