– Last year we added the European Steel Congress STEEL 2023 to the portfolio of events of the Katowice Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Katowice. It was a meeting of steel market leaders – aimed at building a platform for the exchange of knowledge and experience. This year, we expanded the subject matter to include issues related to industrial and energy transformation in the broadest sense, considered in conjunction with the requirements arising from the policies pursued by the European Union. The previous name too narrowly defined this year’s scope of the event, so we decided to change it, and the event itself was significantly expanded – explains Tomasz Zjawiony, President of RIG in Katowice, the organizer of the event.
