About Congress

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

The Household Appliances Congress is a forum for exchanging ideas and discussing topics important to the industry among the most important representatives and experts of the sector, as well as representatives of the government and local governments.

The second day of the Household Appliances Congress is the Business Mixer, a meeting between producers and subcontractors and service providers, including startups offering innovative solutions for the household appliances industry.

The event is a space for exchanging contacts and experiences, as well as for B2B talks.

"In this unique and challenging time, the household appliances industry proves that it pursues its goals and ambitions in a responsible and sustainable manner."

Konrad Pokutycki

CEO of BSH in Poland, Chairman of the Council - Employers' Association APPLiA Polska

"The household appliances industry drives the Lodz SEZ. Therefore, it is a natural place to meet, analyze, discuss the past, assess challenges, look for solutions and innovate."

Marek Michalik

CEO of Lodz Special Economic Zone

"Running a business in accordance with the principles of sustainable development is not only a choice, but an obligation for responsible companies. We would like to share our experiences and consider how our industry could lead by example in this regard."

Krzysztof Kudlek

CEO of Electrolux Poland

"Conflicts arise out of a lack of understanding and dialogue. That is why we have to meet and talk about how to find ourselves as a household appliance industry in this difficult situation. We will also invite other industries to participate in the dialogue. The best experts will discuss, among others, about people, the environment, supply and the new law."

Wojciech Konecki

CEO of APPLiA Polska, Vice President of the Polish Chamber of Commerce

"In difficult times, in which we undoubtedly operate today, solidarity, unanimity and unanimity are very important. We must talk to each other and build bridges. Only this approach will guarantee development to our huge and important industry."

Olaf Krynicki

Director of Communications
Samsung Electronics Polska

"This is another year full of challenges for the household appliances industry. We are facing new challenges, hence the great need to meet and exchange experiences. The Congress is a discussion platform for the entire industry, not only manufacturers, but also suppliers and distributors. It's good to be there."

Federico Rosales

CEO Whirlpool Company Polska Sp. z o.o.

"Last year the production of household appliances in Poland reached 27 million units, which is 3 million more than the year before. The home appliance industry in Poland has employed over 100 thousand workers. These very numbers prove the significance of the household appliances industry playing in Polish economy and make us talk about this huge potential and challenges for the future during the IVth Home Appliances Congress"
