The 15th International Exhibition “EDUCATION & CAREER 2013” best enables you to reach out to the largest foreign student market in Europe.
International Exhibition “EDUCATION & CAREER” in Greece, now in its 15th consecutive year, provides a quality exhibition environment and on-site features that are valuable and informative for both exhibitors and visitors. Around 12,000 visitors and 150 exhibitors from 10 countries come to the show every year.
A very high percentage of Greek students opt to study at foreign universities. Greece has more students studying abroad than any other nation, proportionate to its population. It is estimated that approximately 45,000-50,000 Greek students study abroad on undergraduate and graduate level, making Greece the top European market for student recruitment.
The international studies trend shows no sign of a slowdown even under the current tough economic situation. Education remains a number one priority for every Greek family and especially today, more people are interested to study and gain experience abroad.
In today’s complex and demanding job market, education is the most valuable asset for succeeding in the workplace. Under the present difficult economic conditions, the International Exhibition “EDUCATION & CAREER” takes on more importance as it offers the opportunity to visitors to explore all the possibilities available for studying and working in Greece or abroad and to exhibitors the possibility to inform a wide audience, network, exchange information and ideas, recruit students and look for collaborations and alliances.
