The largest in Southern Poland,and the leading Polish organizer of exhibitions and congresses has strengthened its market position by the acquisition of easyFairs Poland. This is the first case in our country when a private Polish exhibition company has taken over a business with a foreign capital. – The merger is a logical and natural consequence of the long-term tight cooperation.
