The future is hybrid – participate at the Student fairs Norway 2022!
In 2022 the Student fairs will be a hybrid solution – a combination of digital and physical fairs which will incorporate the benefits from both types of events. This gives you as an exhibitor even better prospects of getting in contact with your target market in Norway.
The Student fairs will be held in six regions during January and February, on the same dates for both digital and physical events. We will make sure that you will become visible for all visitors and that it will be easy to operate both the digital and physical stand.
Participation with a digital stand in the region is obligatory. In addition, you can order a physical stand in the cities of your choice. If ordering a physical stand, you will obtain the digital stand in the same region free of charge.
More visitors in total
The hybrid solution gives visitors the opportunity to participate both physically and digitally, which may lead to higher visitor numbers in total. This will also make it easier and more flexible for the schools to give additional students the opportunity to participate and allocate more time for visiting the fairs. The hybrid solution also ensures that students that are unable to visit a physical fair, can still get in contact with all exhibitors. By visiting the digital fair, they can chat and have video calls with exhibitors that participate both physically and digitally.
Exposure and contact with visitors
If you participate with a digital stand only, you will still become available for students who visit the physical fairs. We will establish areas with PC stations in the exhibition hall where the students can get an overview of and contact the digital exhibitors. It will also be possible for visitors to contact you via their mobile phone.
The hybrid solution will enable students that cannot visit a physical fair to still get in contact with all exhibitors. By visiting the fair digitally they can get in contact with both exhibitors that participates with a physical stand and exhibitors that have a digital stand only.
Digital platform – new opportunities
The developments the digital solution will allow exhibitors to obtain a full overview of the statistics and enquiries from the audience. All students can ask for more information and leave their contact details on your stand. This applies when they participate both digitally and physically. Exhibitors will therefore get a good overview of the response and can follow up all enquiries easily.
Easy to participate with the same digital stand
If you participated as an exhibitor at the digital Student fairs in Norway 2021, the content of your stand will be copied over to the fair portal for 2022. You can of course update and make changes to your stand before the fair portal opens for visitors.
Flexible and safe for exhibitors
By participating digitally, you will be available with your information in a cost-effective way in the regions of your choice. If you would like additional exposure, you can participate with a physical stand in the selected cities as well. If the physical events cannot be held due to the pandemic situation, or if you cannot travel to Norway due to potential travel restrictions, you are already prepared with a digital solution. This ensures that you, in any case, will be able to reach your target audience in Norway. Exhibitors will be exempt payment for the physical stand in case of the above-mentioned scenarios.
Open day for your institution
As an exhibitor, you can also arrange an open day event for your institution. This can be done by re-using your digital stand or by obtaining your own solution. Contact us for more information.
Tailor-made program for students
This time, the schools will be offered their own programs for attending the fair, which will be tailor-made for each student. The programs will make sure that the students’ interests are matched with the relevant information at the fair. This will result in more relevant visitors and enquires for you as an exhibitor. We will also increase the live content at the digital events and in various ways improve the opportunities for contact between exhibitors and visitors.
Planning tool for students and advisors
The information in the digital portal and in your digital stand will also become part of a planning tool which students can use in the education and careers selection process. Students from the visiting schools will obtain access to the fair portal during autumn 2021, so they can use it as a tool both before, during and after the fairs. The portal will be available for the audience for an entire year, and you can change the content in your digital stand when you want during this period.
