Meetings at the investment summit

As part of the “Krakow Metropolitan Area for Business” project, representatives of Krakow Nowa Huta Future SA were also present at the Krakow’s stand. “We talked with potential investors about the possibilities of locating new ventures in the Krakow Metropolis, especially paying attention to the area of the Economic Activity Zone Nowa Huta of the Future, which is to be put into operation later this year” – reports Marcin Rybski, Director of the Investor Service, Cooperation and Marketing Office in the Company.

The region’s investment offer, apart from traditional materials, has been supplemented with the opportunity to get acquainted with the KrOF investment areas using glasses presenting virtual reality. Being in Cannes, it was possible to move virtually to Nowa Huta, Balice, Zabierzów or Skawina. Thanks to the actions taken and cooperation at the exhibition stand with the City of Krakow, fair vistors could obtain comprehensive information about the Region.
