World Conference On Doping In Sport Katowice 2019 | 5-7 November

Message from the Marshall of the Silesian Voivodeship

Jakub ChełstowskiLadies and Gentlemen,

In November 2019, the City of Katowice and the Silesian Voivodeship will have the honour and pleasure of welcoming the guests of the World Conference on Doping in Sport. It was with joy and pride that I received the news in 2017 of the decision to hold this major international event in the heart of our region.

The Silesian Voivodeship can boast the successful hosting of numerous international events - conferences, trade fairs, sports competitions and music concerts - all of which are a hallmark of the region and its cities. Our strong organizational skills, efficient logistics systems, modern infrastructure, the region’s attractiveness and diversity, as well as particular kindness and hospitality towards visitors are a positive validation of what we have to offer.

The Silesian Voivodeship is strongly focused on sport. The recently opened Silesian Stadium (Stadion Śląski) in Chorzów has already hosted several major events: football matches, track and field competitions and shows, all of which have met with positive reviews.

I am convinced that with thanks to the commitment of the several entities involved, the 2019 World Conference on Doping in Sport will be carried out to the highest of global standards. I hope we will have the opportunity to present our region to the Conference participants as one that is welcoming, attractive in terms of tourist and cultural offering, supportive to sport, open to visitors and full of positive energy.

Please accept our warm invitation to visit Katowice and the Silesian Voivodeship.

Yours sincerely,
Jakub Chełstowski
Marszałek Województwa Śląskiego
