    Between 11-13 June 2019, Warsaw Humanitarian Expo 2019 (WHE 2019) will take place in Nadarzyn, near Warsaw. It is the first conference and trade event dedicated to humanitarian and development topics in the Central and Eastern Europe.

    The  formula based on participation of business, NGOs, government institutions and international organizations’ representatives is also unique. Thus, the Warsaw Humanitarian Expo 2019 becomes  a rare opportunity to meet entrepreneurs, experts, humanitarian and development aid decision-makers in one place.


    Warsaw Humanitarian Expo is organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland, PTAK Warsaw Expo and Lubawa S.A. Institutions from Austria, Czech Republic, Greece, Romania, Slovakia and Ukraine are partners of the Warsaw Procurement Forum, an inherent part of the Expo.


    The event will be held under the honorary patronage of Mr. Andrzej Duda, the President of the Republic of Poland.


    Main objective of the Warsaw Humanitarian Expo is to stimulate activity of business in the area of humanitarian aid, as well as to work on developing further ties between business and institutions, which provide humanitarian and development aid.


    Warsaw Humanitarian Expo is based on 3 pillars:


    1. High Level Conference – Responsible Business for Humanitarian Emergencies – which aims to promote the concept of business engagement in humanitarian and development aid. One of the panelists  taking part in the conference will be Mark Lowcock, UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator and the Head of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

    2. Warsaw Procurement Forum (WPF) – a set of trainings and workshops on effective participation in international organizations’ tenders, especially registration rules for vendors, good practices and “success stories” of other companies. Among participants of Warsaw Procurement Forum are representatives of the UN system organizations (FAO, WHO, UNHCR, UNDP, WFP ), as well as the EU, International Red Cross and Red Crescent and international NGOs.

    3. Exhibiton/Fair – for entrepreneurs, whose stands will be divided into following zones: logistics and communication; medical aid; shelter; safety; food. An “agency zone”  where institutions, NGOs or even start-ups will find their space will also be organized.


    The aim is to develop a real "Humanitarian City” in the “Agency zone”. Polish and international NGOs will be in a position  to present their projects and exhibitions, discuss their successes and failures, as well as arrange meetings with representatives of business and international organizations in order to convince them that their actions are important and purposeful.


    The organizers invite all interested parties, in particular business representatives who have genuine interest in humanitarian and development aid, to become a partner of the Warsaw Humanitarian Expo 2019 .
