POLSA’s stand will have an area of 100 square meters. Such space allows to organize several events. On Tuesday the 20th of September at 11am we will host companies from Australia for B2B meetings with Polish entities. Networking is a continuation of cooperation started by the online meeting between Australian and Polish entities in June 2022. Then the collaboration opportunities for Polish-Australian space sector were discussed.
The next step is a planned mission of Polish companies to Australia at the turn of February and March 2023 to participate in THE AVALON – Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defence Exposition where Poland will have a dedicated stand. The visit is being prepared together with the foreign office of Polish Investment & Trade Agency in Sydney, Marshal’s Office of the Podkarpackie Region, The City of Rzeszów and the Avation Valley with the support of Austrade – Australian Trade and Investment Commission.
Please join POLSA’s stand number B29 on the 20th of September at 15pm for a cocktail sponsored by the Marshal’s Office of the Podkarpackie Region to integrate Polish entities with the international space community. It will be a great occasion to exchange experiences and to do business.
