Build Europe

The Polish Association and Developers operates within the Build Europe. For over 50 years, this organization has been promoting the activities of developers and house builders and their contribution to society. 
Build Europe is the umbrella organization for national federations. It represents more than 30,000 developers and house builders in Europe affiliated to the federations of 10 states. 
Build Europe members initiate real estate projects and assume responsibility for the coordination of the operations, the execution and the sale of the completed building to the final user. During that process, members are in charge of all legal, financial, technical and urban planning aspects in order to create a coherent and sustainable unit.  

Housing Congress

The Housing Congress is the largest sector event in Poland. It is organized by the PAD every two years. So far, four editions of the Congress have been held. It’s aim is to initiate a multi-thread debate and exchange of opinions between experts shaping the development industry market in Poland. 
During each edition of the Housing Congress, we find time both for general discussion during the Panels and for a very detailed analysis of selected issues during the thematic debates. 
We approach the issues with objectivity and professionalism. The effects of such actions can be seen in many places. Starting with the perception of the development industry as more and more mature and stable after appreciating our merits, which is manifested, inter alia, by the inclusion of the Polish Association of Developers in an advisory team in the Ministry of Infrastructure and Construction for the preparation of new technical conditions for buildings.
