5th Home Appliance Congress

25-26 May 2023 / Lodz



About The Congress

The household appliance industry has been an extremely important sector of Polish economy for many years.
The production of about 22 million devices of large and small household appliances puts Poland in the first place among European producers in this sector.

Household Appliance Congress is not only a forum to exchange ideas, but also to discuss topics crucial for the sector with important representatives and experts from home appliance industry, including government representatives. The second day of Congress consists of Business Mixer – a meeting of producers, sub-suppliers and service providers, among others startups offering innovative products and services.

Congress will be a perfect place to exchange contacts, experiences and B2B conversations.

"The white goods industry is one of the vital strengths of the Polish economy with still huge growth potential. At the Home Appliance Congress, we are identifying the best directions for its responsible and sustainable development."

Konrad Pokutycki

President of the Board of APPLiA Polska

"2023 is going to be another year where we are like “babe in the woods” looking to the future. More out-of-the-box solutions and actions will be needed to stay 'on the roll'. Bearing this thought in mind I am going to the Home Appliance Congress, wanting to hear what others are doing and thinking."

Radosław Matuszewski

CEO SEB Groupe

"The Home Appliance Congress is a much-needed event, especially in such uncertain times for the industry. It's not just deliberations, but behind-the-scenes conversations, and it allows you to learn about other perspectives and meet decision makers who have a real say in the country's economic policy and influence market stimulation through their decisions."
