Why to attend?

The BSS Tour Kielce: Technology Parks Forum is the sixth meeting this year organized as part of the nationwide conference series hosted by the Pro Progressio Foundation. This time, the organizers focused on the theme of Technology Parks in Poland, which perform various functions and are located throughout the country, supporting local business development. As a permanent part of the business ecosystem of cities and provinces, they became the leitmotiv of the event in Kielce. The purpose of the event is to discuss the area of Park professionalization, their tools supporting business development, as well as their relations with Special Economic Zones. Representatives of Parks and Zones from all over Poland, as well as representatives of companies that are their tenants, were invited to participate in the discussion panels.

The BSS Tour Kielce aims to discover, describe and bring up the area of issues related to the activities of Technology Parks and Economic Zones, which increase the investment attractiveness of regions in the eyes of potential tenants and perceive them as institutions which are business friendly. The order of discussion panels and their issues will lead the participants through a number of areas in which business activities are carried out, thus giving a comprehensive picture of the professionalization of Parks in Poland. Starting from historical knowledge about their development, through discussion of start-up support tools and business acceleration in Parks, and discussions about their coworking capabilities, ending with the show of relations between Parks and Economic Zones. The goal of the event is also to present the investment potential of the City of Kielce. During the event, a contract for the implementation of the 7R Park Kielce investment will be signed.
