FAKRO was one of the participants in the 60 Million Congress. This year, the Congress was organized in Rzeszów. The event included many interesting panel discussions on contemporary world challenges. A representative from FAKRO also took part in the discussion dedicated to the challenges faced by the construction materials manufacturers' industry.
The name of the Congress reflects the overall number of Poles and people of Polish descent worldwide, exceeding 60 million. The event first took place in Miami in 2018 and has been organized in various cities in the USA and Europe in subsequent years, such as London, Berlin, and New York.
The construction materials manufacturers' industry faces several challenges related to environmental protection, innovation, competition, compliance with regulations, and production efficiency. Success requires constant adaptation to changing market conditions and the implementation of solutions that meet customer expectations and contribute to the sustainable development of the entire industry, as commented by Paweł Szewczyk, Market Manager - Western Europe at FAKRO, representing the company during the panel discussion on challenges in the construction materials manufacturers' industry.
During the Congress, interesting discussions were held, covering topics such as artificial intelligence, innovations in the medical industry, and the global market for plant-based and organic food. Participants of the Congress also had the opportunity to explore the tourist attractions of Podkarpacie, including water sports in Polańczyk on Lake Solina. The Congress was concluded with a traditional elegant banquet.
This year's edition of the 60 Million Congress took place from July 13th to 15th in Rzeszów.
