17 Sustainable Development Goals - No. 8 "Decent Work and Economic Growth"

How do we implement Goal No. 8 "Decent Work and Economic Growth"?

-Good transport accessibility, large and modern facilities for the organization of great events, the development of new technology and service businesses, growing management experience of large international events (cultural, sports and business), as well as rising business tourism to the top of the local administration agenda of the city development are the key strengths attracting to Katowice organizers of business events.

In 2019 in Katowice, 6,453 business events were organized, including many international (cyclical and for the first time in the city). The number of participants in all the events amounted to 1,020,187 people, and the expenses of these participants in the city reached almost PLN 210 M.
