The industry promotion programs
As a part of the industry programs, PAIH organizes, at the selected trade fairs, stands informing about the polish industry. It is also an opportunity to present the potential of Poland. Due to restrictions imposed by the European Commission, Polish companies cannot act as exhibitors at national stands, but they have the possibility of using their infrastructure as a meeting places with contractors, presenting materials and promotional films. Participation in promotion programs enables entrepreneurs to expand into new non-EU markets, often distant and expensive, which, due to the existing risks and costs, entrepreneurs have not yet chosen in their development strategies.

This year PAIH takes part in 35 trade fairs, the largest of which are:

MEDICA (Duesseldorf, Germany), Miami International Boat Show (USA), Bio International Convention (Philadelphia, USA), Cosmoprof (Bologna, Italy), AAPEX Las Vegas (USA), JCK Las Vegas (USA), Index International Design (Dubai , UAE), China Coal & Mining Expo (Beijing, China), Bygg Reis Deg (Lillestrom, Norway)
