Pilsen is one of the most important industrial cities in the Czech Republic. The establishment of two industrial giants in the late 19th century, Škoda Works and the Pilsner Urquell brewery, brought the greatest renown to the city.
Industrial visits to these companies, and/or other relevant organizations, are planned to be carried out during the last day of the conference.
One of the most recognized Czech brands for many years has been the Škoda´s logo, the winged arrow. The company´s beginnings reach back to 1859, when a foundry and engineering plant was established in Pilsen.
