As every year, we look forward to meeting our clients at the SACROEXPO International Exhibition of Church Building and Equipment, Religious Arts and Religious Objects, which has been bringing together the entire sacral industry in Kielce for more than 20 years.
It is the largest event of its kind in Poland. Last year’s gathering of the religious industry was attended by 172 companies from 8 countries, and the exhibition center in Kiele was visited by 2,500 guests.
During the SACROEXPO exhibition, products and services related to the daily functioning of churches and places of worship were presented. These are also cultural events: concerts, exhibitions and meetings with celebrities from the world of culture and art. For years, the exhibition served as a bridge between the world of art and business, as well as parish councils and managers of sacral and monastery buildings.
In addition, to the SacroExpo Fair, the Per Artem ad Deum gala has been organized for more than 15 years, during which awards are given to prominent artists for their work in the development of culture and art. The Kielce Exhibition Center has already honored 30 winners, including Ennio Morricone, Krzysztof Zanussi, Krzysztof Penderecki, Antonina Krzyszton, Wojciech Kilar and Arvo Pärt. This year’s medal winner of the Pontifical Council for Culture Per Artem Ad Deum was prominent Italian director Giuseppe Tornatore.
An additional attraction was prepared for us by the Diocesan Museum in Kielce and the Prima Porta Antiques Gallery. This is a unique exhibition Ars Eucharistica, which will present works of goldsmith art that served for the Eucharist, as well as artifacts related to the Passion of the Lord.
