About The Polish Chemistry Congress

Dear Sirs,

The Polish Chemistry Congress is one of the most important events of the chemical industry in Poland and a great opportunity to exchange experiences and to present innovative ideas and strategies for the chemical industry. Apart from general issues, thematic sessions proposed by us are based on current topics being the subject of work of the Polish Chemical Industry Association (PIPC) and its associated commissions.

The success of the previous editions of this event showed how necessary it is for the Polish chemical sector to create a platform for discussions and an exchange of experiences in the field of technological solutions, the performance of investment processes, process safety, innovations and the impact of the legal and economic environment.

During the previous editions of the Congress, our guests were outstanding representatives of the world of business, science, business organisations, politics and the biggest companies of the Polish chemical sector.

We believe that, like in previous years, the Congress will be an exceptional event and its participants will again appreciate the high level of debates and the excellent organisation of meetings.


Join us at the Congress!

Tomasz Zieliński, Ph.D., Eng.
President of the Management Board of the Polish Chamber of Chemical Industry

7TH POLISH CHEMISTRY CONGRESS IN A NEW TV ONLINE FORM!

New reality – new challenges! The Polish Chamber of Chemical Industry invites you to participate in the Polish Chemistry Congress 2020 that will be held exceptionally in a new online form on 16th September. Participation in the event is free of charge, and registration is possible via the form available at www.kongrespolskachemia.pl.

The Polish Chemistry Congress is the most important event in the chemical industry in Poland and one of the biggest industrial meetings in this part of Europe. For the last six years, the Polish Chemistry Congress has aroused huge interest among people from the world of business, science, industry organisations, science and, most importantly, important players of the Polish chemical sector. Each meeting within the framework of the Polish Chemistry Congress is a time of important discussions about the situation, challenges and future of the entire industry. The pandemic caused by COVID-19 eliminated the possibility of holding such a big event in the form of a stationary meeting, hence the decision of the Polish Chamber of Chemical Industry, the organiser of the Congress, to transfer the 7th edition to the virtual world. PIPC, which built the strong brand of the Polish Chemistry Congress, could not afford to propose a classic form of webinar; therefore, this year’s edition will have the form of an exclusive day-long journalistic & industry live TV broadcast that will be available to every interested spectator free of charge! 

This year, because of the pandemic, the 7th Polish Chemistry Congress assumes a new form: a live TV broadcast! Every year the Congress surprises participants with some new element; this year, taking these special circumstances into account, we decided on this kind of surprise. The Polish Chemistry Congress in the form of an online TV broadcast is something that has never occurred before!’ says Engineer Tomasz Zieliński, PhD, President of the Management Board of PIPC.

The form may change, but quality will remain on the highest level. ‘The program of the Congress will include interviews, debates and conversations involving heads of the most important industry players, representatives of administrative bodies and many experts. Everything in the form of very dynamic discussions interwoven with the most recent industry information, with a large number of interesting graphic elements and using the capabilities offered by augmented reality. We are also reaching new recipients. The stationary form of the Congress had a limited number of places; this time we open up and are available literally to all interested persons, also those outside the chemical industry, and the international audience,’ stresses President Tomasz Zieliński.

‘This year’s Polish Chemistry Congress is a huge multimedia project where you can also visit virtual partner stands and collect current information, and the broadcast will be simultaneously translated into English, which ensures unlimited possibilities of reaching current and future business partners around the world,’ adds the President of the Management Board of PIPC.

The whole event is broadcast, e.g., via refreshed website of the Congress adapted to this year’s form of the event. Here we will also find a new form of partner stands: virtual stands. Apart from that, the electronic edition of Magazyn Polska Chemia, the virtual agenda and multimedia Congress guides will be available to the participants of the Congress.
