Kraków’s Aces - first edition of the contest

15 November 2017

Which office buildings completed in Kraków in the last few years are the best? A poll is to be held in cooperation with the City of Kraków to answer this very question.

Local and nationwide developers will compete for the titles of the greenest, most user-friendly and most interesting office facilities, as decided by companies operating on Kraków’s BSS market.

Kraków is the largest regional office market in Poland and a leading business service centre. The aim of the competition is to recognise the city’s best office projects and to showcase them as among its greatest assets.

The eventual winners are to be chosen in a survey and in an on-line vote. Buildings can be entered for the competition via a website specially created for the event.

The results of the poll are to be announced at an event bringing together representatives of Kraków’s modern business services sector, which will take place on December 5th 2017 at Kraków City Hall. On this day those attending the event will also be able to vote for their favourite facilities. The Grand Prix title will be awarded to the building that receives the most votes.

The company responsible for the organisation of the event is Eurobuild Conferences, which is owned by the publisher of Eurobuild CEE monthly magazine, the media patron of the poll.
