04.07.2014Presentations at Begin Edu Fairs
Attending a fair is a great chance to meet your potential audience in person. However the speed dating format used when consulting numerous fair visitors assumes repeating the same information over and over again during the fair. To make your participation at the fair more efficient you can give a presentation of your institution during the fair.

04.07.2014Fairs Don’t Work or… May Be You Don’t?
Let’s be frank, not 100% of those who come to fairs go study abroad, but 60% of the visitors surely do, this year or next. True that they can visit a dozen of education fairs before they make up their mind, but wouldn’t you do the same when choosing a college and country for you or your child to go?
