On October 10, 2023, the jubilee 20th edition of the prestigious Congress of the Polish Chamber of Steel Construction (PIKS) took place, with President Tadeusz Rybak in attendance. This significant event has become a permanent fixture in the calendar of major conferences in the steel construction industry. The Special Guest of this year's Congress was Prof. Marek Belka.
In his speech, Marek Belka addressed the topic of the further economic development of our country and the broad geopolitical situation. He spoke about the prospects for development and the threats posed by recent events on the international stage.
In the evening, a solemn Gala took place, beginning with presentations from the Congress Partners.
Traditionally, the gala was an opportunity to award Certificates for Steel Construction Producer and Co-Producer. These awards serve as confirmation of the high quality of services provided.
During the ceremonial Gala, the winner of this year's "Steel Construction – Project of the Year" competition was announced. The statuette and diploma went to ZEKON sp. z o.o. for the impressive realization of the Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung in Berlin.
