More than 78% of Katowice citizens support the construction of the International Convention Center (ICC) in the City. The result was obtained during a survey conducted after the fourth European Economic Congress (EEC) on behalf of PTWP Group, an organizer of the event.

Only 8,6 percent of the interviewees do not support the idea (2,9% – definitely do not support, 5,7% – rather do not support).
