Project promotion

Invest in Dąbrowa Górnicza – promotion of the city economic potential – stage 2”

The project is co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund as a part of the Regional Operational Programme of the Śląskie Voivodeship for 2007-2013”


The project is another stage of activities connected with investment promoting of Dąbrowa Górnicza. The first campaign under the slogan “Invest in Dąbrowa Górnicza – promotion of the city economic potential”, run between 2009 and 2010, was aimed at promoting 8 investment areas and creating the city brand as a dynamic development centre. That stage included participation of the city in investment real estate fairs and running a promotional campaign, both in Poland and abroad. The web page for the investor www.dabrowa-gornicza.comcreated in 2009, was one of the most important tools. Thus, the decision was made to update and modernise it.


The new campaign, planned for 2011-2013, includes a number of activities directed and promoting the economic potential of the city in order to attract new investors. The direct goal of the “Invest in Dąbrowa Górnicza – promotion of the city economic potential – stage 2” project is the increase in recognition of the city investment offer, and, consequently, the increase in volume of direct investments that are to be realised in the future in Dąbrowa Górnicza. The project is directed at further promotion of the economic potential; however, new forms of promotion will be used and the number of investment areas will be increased – the enterprise is to promote 15 investment areas.

Compared to the first stage of the project, the decision was made to intensify the actions concerning investment promotion. The number of potential city partners with whom contact will be established should reach 80 people/companies, 25% of which will be the participants of the investment seminar, 50% – investors at whom the B2B campaign is aimed, and the last 25% will be the investors contacted during the economic missions. The number of promotional material used will also be increased (15 types altogether, including the web page and national and foreign press publications), which will certainly influence the diversity of activities undertaken.
