International Factoring Congress is one of the most important events in the calendar of factoring and finance managers and practitioners in Poland. Experts from all over the world take part in it. Important problems and challenges faced by factoring service providers in Poland and in other markets are discussed here.

This year’s edition will be devoted to summarizing the situation on the factoring market and in the entrepreneurial environment on the threshold of a new era in the economy. We will discuss what the crisis caused by the pandemic has taught us and what the future awaits for the markets in Poland and around the world.

You’re welcome!


International Factoring Congress is an annual meeting of experts from the factoring and financial industry from Poland and the world. During the 12 edition, we acquired a large group of loyal listeners and supporters. Recognized authorities in the field of economy and management always take part in the deliberations. They answer questions related to the situation of enterprises and solutions affecting their financial liquidity.

This year the Congress is held for the thirteenth time. The event will be full of passionate speeches, interesting discussions and important questions.

I highly recommend and invite you to a live meeting or online participation!
