In 2019, ING Bank Śląski S.A. was involved in sponsorship activities targeted at entrepreneurs, young people, activities related to ecology, electromobility, as well as SME owners and management. They were designed to empower and motivate people to stay a step ahead in life and in business.
The most important sponsored events included:
- European Economic Congress in Katowice,
- European Start-up Days in Katowice,
- Run Warsaw,
- Open Eyes Economy in Cracow,
- European Week of Sustainable Transport in Katowice.
ING Bank Śląski S.A. as the main sponsor supported the European Economic Congress in Katowice and European Startup Days. That was the largest business meeting in Central Europe, overall attended by almost 14 thousand people. ING experts shared their know-how and experience participating in discussion panels. In the MCK conference venue in Katowice, the ING Influ zone was organized, where the congress participants could listen to the discussion and meet with the influencers active in social media.
ING Bank Śląski S.A. once again co-operated with the organisers of the “Run Warsaw” sport event, once against performing the role of 2019 General Partner of the sport event. About 5,000 employees with their families represented the majority of the participants in the 5 km march accompanying the running event, and more than 1,000 people from this group covered a distance of 10 km.
In addition, ING Bank Śląski has been involved in sponsoring TEDx Katowice Salon – a series of local events that bring together and engage the local community, teach, inspire innovation and engage in dialogue and action. It is a series of events promoting valuable ideas in Poland and encouraging their application.
