The Student fairs were arranged digitally for the first time in Norway during January and February 2021. More than 61 000 students visited the fair portal during this period and 200 exhibitors from 20 different countries participated.
There were several factors we could not control when dealing with the pandemic situation. Prior to the events, more than 80 000 students were pre-registered to visit the fairs. After the completion of the events, we registered that 61 443 students actually logged into the fair portal. The student advisors and teachers were limited in their ability to inform and follow up their students due to home schooling, quarantine situations and other aspects relating to Covid-19. This resulted in less students visiting the fairs, but some students also took the opportunity to visit the fair several times.
Considering the circumstances and the limited time we had to plan for the events, we are still satisfied that so many students from all over Norway participated. We also realize that these types of events have great potential for further development and usage. The fair portal can with some adjustments and improvements be used as a tool for career planning for both advisors and students. This is already a part of the plan for the Student fairs in 2022.
