IN THIS ISSUE <
A year of great events 627 thousand visitors, 9.5 thousand exhibitors, and events covering the total of 365 thousand square meters – this is the summary of the year 2O15 at Międzynarodowe Targi Poznańskie, which has to do with Poznań not only due to its name. In October 2O15, the City of Poznań became the sole owner of the Fair. This way the history has repeated itself as it was out of the initiative of Poznań merchants that the 1st Poznań Fair took place in 1921; it was Poland’s ﬁrst national exhibition event. Turning it into the up-to-date language, we would have been a pretty good startup! Innovativeness, dynamics, promotion of novelties and non-standard solutions are the values we followed then and which we also ﬁnd important today, i.e. 95 years after. It is hard to imagine Poznań without the most recognizable exhibition brand in Poland, being a place of the greatest exhibition events, conferences and concerts. 2O16, the year we are celebrating our 95th anniversary, will be even more eventful not only around Poznań but also in other Polish towns. Generally, Henryk Wieniawski’s music will accompany us over the whole year as it is the year of concerts taking place as part of the International Violin Competition of H. Wieniawski and the International Lute Competition of H. Wieniawski. We are proud to patronize such prestigious international events. We will also carry out new investments. A multi-level gastronomy zone will be created in pavilion 15; a canteen, a restaurant and an exclusive VIP zone will occupy three levels. It will be a prelude to modernization works in the coming years, when fair grounds will be extended by a multi-storey car park, a boutique hotel, and an exhibition museum. We are also in for lots of impressive events in 2O16 which will not only be connected with the MTP’s jubilee but also with the 1O5Oth anniversary of the Christening of Poland and the origin of Poland. To commemorate that, the Earth Hall of Międzynarodowe Targi Poznańskie will host the National Assembly on 15th April 2O16. It is a meeting of the Sejm, the Senat, the Polish government and it is attended by the Polish Episcopate as well as Prime Ministers of the neighboring countries. A few months later, we will host more than 1O thousand guests participating in the FDI Annual Dental Congress. It will be the largest congress in the history of Poznań since the COP14 climate conference. I am convinced that the events of 2O16 will provide you with lots of positive emotions and will successfully promote Polish economy and its entrepreneurs. I would like to invite you to Poznań and wish you lots of business success over the whole 2O16. Przemysław Trawa President of the Board of Międzynarodowe Targi Poznańskie

> POLISH ECONOMY
Flexibility and openness Following the Financial Times, Polish economy proved its ﬂexibility towards the economic slowdown; it is the only country in the European Union whose GDP has not decreased after the events in 2OO8. Compared to the previous year, the Polish GDP increased by 3.6% in the second quarter of 2O15 making it the third best result in Europe following Czech Republic and Romania. Many factors inﬂuenced upon the economic development of Poland including structural reforms, well-qualiﬁed human capital, labor costs, as well as investments based on European funds and cooperation with European Countries, especially with Germany. Human potential, friendly regulations Poland is ranked 14th among 65 countries which were researched by PISA (Program for International Student Assessment), which is far above the average level of the OECD countries and also higher than Germany, Austria, Denmark, and France. Poland also provides favorable business conditions. According to the prestigious Doing Business ranking from 2O16, which reﬂects the easiness of running a company globally, Poland was ranked 25th out of 189 countries, higher than Spain and Italy. At the same time, Poland offers lower labor costs, which are nearly four times lowers than those of Spain and Italy and nearly six times lowers than those of Germany. Moreover, the costs have been going down, unlike in the case of our neighbors. This results from the characteristics of the labor market which offers pretty ﬂexible forms of employment. Strategic location Poland’s strategic location makes it, sort of, a bridge between the east and the greatest economy of Europe, namely Germany. Similarly to other countries of Eastern Europe, in the 9Os Poland became another part of the German production belt by means of investments of such German companies as Volkswagen and Bosch which placed parts of their production here. As a result, more than a fourth of Polish export reaches Germany. Export increase According to preliminary data of the Central Statistical Ofﬁce of Poland the export value in 2O15 is to reach about EUR 87,2 billion, which is ca. 8% more than in 2O14. The import value, on the other hand, is to reach about EUR 84,3 billion (6.5% increase). Export into developed markets kept increasing in the ﬁrst quarter of 2O15; O4 / POZNAŃ FAIR MAGAZINE
an increase of 6.7% up to EUR 36.5 billion. Also, export to developing countries developed very fast reaching 2O.1%, and export value to these markets reached EUR 3.9 billion. Simultaneously, shrinking of export to Central and Eastern Europe was noted; export to Russia, Ukraine and Belarus dropped by 32%, 16% and 4O% respectively. Flagship export products Over the last 25 years of the political and economic transformation Polish export kept developing. In the 9Os Poland mostly exported raw materials such as coal, copper, clothes and furniture. Over the last two years Poland has become a leading exporter of cars and car spare parts (8% of export), being ranked 15th in that sector globally. Poland achieves comparably impressive results in the ﬁeld of furniture (4th worldwide exporter in terms of sale value; Poland follows China, Germany and Italy only), food (export value in 2O15 is to reach EUR 25 billion), boats and yachts (5th place worldwide). The other Polish export specialties include clothes and accessories, leather products, cosmetics, food, construction materials especially windows and doors, sanitary products, water installations, IT and ICT services, jewelry and amber products, pharmaceutical and biotechnological innovations, medical equipment and measuring devices, as well as medical tourism. Technological innovation The Polish start-up ecosystem has been developing very rapidly. It is estimated that there are 2,4OO entities referred to as start-ups, whose key business model concentrates on the processing of information and related technologies. Most often start-ups include software producers operating in such sectors as mobile apps, e-commerce, as well as web services. It is nearly two times more often that start-ups refer to B2B and B2C services as dominant. “Go global” is a slogan which accompanies
POLSKA GOSPODARKA <
nearly every single start-up initiative. On one hand, those entities which, from the very beginning, wish to win the favor of the most challenging foreign markets are very successful. On the other hand, however, the domestic market in pretty often a starting point for those undertakings which are destined to become broader with time. Exporters constitute more than half of all start-ups. Half of them carry out more than 5O% of sales abroad, mostly to Great Britain and the United States of America. Germany is also an important recipient. Polish start-ups start to make global and innovative technological products and promise that we will see lots of phenomenal products which are “Made in Poland”. Future forecast As estimated by Rafał Sadoch, Plus Bank economist, the growth of GDP in the whole 2O15 should level at 3.5% rather than 3.7% which has been predicted so far. Economists often label such forecasts with a statement saying “unless some unexpected circumstances occur”. And, what “unexpected circumstances” may inﬂuence upon the Polish economy? Mostly, these involve external threats coming from China, which has so far been a hope of global economy. The bloody Monday of September 24 at stock exchange in Shanghai, whose main index dropped by 8.5%, impacted on other worldwide markets and raised questions concerning the Chinese economy and the credibility of statistics. The 7% economic growth planned by Chinese authorities (impressive globally, yet the lowest in the last 25 years) became jeopardized. China can turn to the devaluation of the juan (which they have already commenced). However, this means trouble for the largest exporters like, for example, Germany, which consequently, will affect the Polish economy indirectly.

BUDMA International Construction and Architecture Fair held yearly
KOMINKI International Fireplaces Exhibition held every other year
If you are searching for the latest products and technologies for the construction industry, BUDMA is the place where you are bound to ﬁnd them. It has for years been the ﬂagship project of Międzynarodowe Targi Poznańskie. Every single year it is visited by more than 5O thousand professionals from around the world. The event’s exposition presenting the most complex offer of the construction industry in Poland and Central and Eastern Europe is additionally complemented with a special program of events for professionals divided into four key groups: sales representatives, contractors, investors, and architects. Sales representatives can take advantage of the HOSTED BUYERS program and participate in the Distributor Day. There is a special Architecture Forum for all architects, including a specially-arranged Strada di Architettura, a meeting with some famous architect (in the recent years BUDMA hosted Renato Rizzi, Rainer Mahlamaki, Alberto Viega), an architecture-bound debate, workshops and contests for young architects. Contractors may take part in competitions and championships and they also have a chance to have a go at construction materials and equipment as part of the Test Zone. Investors, on the other hand, are invited to participate in the Energy-Efﬁcient and Passive Construction Forum as well as Days of Construction Engineer. Following its slogan “Knowledge, Inspiration, and Business” the event is packed with business meetings and presentations of brand new products and technologies. Thematic scope: › walls and facades, gates, ceilings, isolation › stone for construction › surfaces › concrete for construction › stairs, ﬂoors, doors, hardware › construction materials and equipment › chemicals for construction › ﬁnishing systems › bathroom ceramics › urban architecture › windows and covers, gates, fences, elevators, automatics › glass for construction › facility management systems › access control systems › parking lot systems › steel constructions › warehouse ﬁtting systems › steel rooﬁng › steel for construction › wooden constructions › ready assembly systems › roofs › green roofs › roof accessories › water drainage › roof insulation › auxiliary construction equipment › construction site equipment › construction machines › transport
www.kominki.mtp.pl Poland’s only fair event where real ﬁre is used! There are premieres of ﬁreplace-related products during the event. Additionally, the latest trends regarding ﬁreplace designs are presented as part of a special zone for architects called Kominek Futura (Futura Fireplace), which constitutes a speciallyarranged sightseeing path known as Strada di Architettura. KOMINKI is dedicated to investors, designers and architects. Thematic scope: › ﬁreplaces: tiled stoves, freestanding ﬂue pipe furnaces › ﬁreplace combustion chambers: inserts, trims, installation parts, stove-making articles, traditional and modern heating systems and construction materials, ﬁreplace accessories, natural stone, heating and insulation materials
Bartosz Zeidler / Product Group Director Energy-efﬁcient and passive construction is a more and more frequently chosen solution, not only due to various regulations and ecology, but also due to relative savings in terms of using a building over a longer period of time. From 2O21 all newly-erected buildings are to be nearly zero-energy buildings, which is the requirement of the European Union. A little earlier, in 2O19, the requirements are to apply to public buildings. Modern construction is trying to minimize energy loss concentrating on completely new challenges. Is the industry ready for that? We will ﬁnd out the answer to the question at BUDMA, where leading construction companies present their latest products and solutions. BUDMA will for the second time be an arena where lots of products have their premieres as part of the BUDMA Premier Club. As usual, the fair will be accompanied by an interesting content-based program. However, the 7th Forum of Energy-Efﬁcient and Passive Construction is what should be given particular attention. We will discuss the most important advantages and concepts behind energy-efﬁcient and passive construction, economic beneﬁts of taking advantage of renewable energies, innovative thermo-insulation solutions, as well as technologies used in non-residential buildings and passive warehouses.

Dariusz Muślewski / Director of BUDMA, SPORT INVEST There is a promising forecast for construction companies operating on the construction market. According to Deloitte, the estimated 4% growth of the Polish GDP as well as the public debt which is expected to decrease to 46% in 2O16 should signiﬁcantly boost the public sector’s willingness to invest in infrastructure. Moreover, as experts say, the new part of European funds for infrastructure and residential construction should power the sector’s increase in the coming years. According to the PMR research center, Poland together with Romania will be the only countries in 2O16 where the total value of production in the construction industry should exceed the level noted prior to the 2OO8-2OO9 crisis.

Joanna Kucharska / Director of ITM Poland, FOCAST The metal industry is one of the most dynamically developing sectors of the Polish economy. At the same time, however, it is vulnerable due to market fragmentation (large share of small and medium-size companies), surplus of production force reaching as much as 3O-4O%, as well as dependency on other sectors such as construction, railway engineering, foundry, and automotive. Despite these dangers and, sometimes, thanks to turning them into opportunities, the metal industry is still expanding (as well as the machine industry which is inter-connected). Companies which concentrate on development by introducing innovative and technologically -advanced solutions always exit the economic jeopardy successfully. These are fundamental to build competitive advantage. Taking advantage of the economic situation of the metal and machine industries, ITM Poland, being the biggest industrial fair in Poland, is also becoming stronger.

Edyta Bonin-Kanikowska / Director of POZNAŃ FAFION FAIR We encourage international brands to participate in POZNAŃ FAFION FAIR. At the same time we remember Polish producers. We created the Polish Fashion project, which provides distinctions to companies producing in Poland only, to make it easier to search for Polish brands. Choosing products of brands having the Polish Fashion label you can be sure their quality is perfect, they are characterized by fashionable patterns and made by best Polish designers. Paying attention to the country of origin of clothing is just one of the trends noticeable on the Polish market. Another one regards the appearance of relatively new brands offering unique footwear, leather items and jewelry, which are often made according to individual orders. Polish brands and young designers are more concentrated on foreign markets and they invest in extending their sale network.

Joanna Mizerska / Director of MEMENTO, SAKRALIA, STONE, GLASS There are about 3,OOO funeral companies in Poland which employ nearly 1OO,OOO people. Two tendencies are particularly noticeable on the market at the moment. On one hand, you can observe openness towards having a corpse cremated, towards designer and ecological urns and cofﬁns, jewelry reliquaries, modern burial methods, and new IT technologies available at funeral companies. On the other hand, however, majority of the society still concentrates on traditional forms of the last farewell in a cofﬁn. Moreover, funeral companies trust those well-known forms of direct business and run their books in a paper form. It is estimated that the constant development of culture and the ever changing social standards regarding the ﬁnal ceremony and related services will result in a bigger need of non-typical funerals in the future.
The largest funeral fair in Central and Eastern Europe, which also boasts the longest tradition in Poland, is organized in cooperation with the Polish Funeral Association.
