Exhibition Utexpo combines with Career Fair

This year's examination exhibition is expected to be bigger than ever. The amount of exhibitors is expected to be more than ever especially as the exhibition is combined with the Student Union's Career Fair. 

Preparations for this year's exhibition Utexpo which is to be held between the 26th and 28th of May, have already started. Innovation engineers Johanna Haversjö and Catarina Stenberg share this year's Utexpo chairmanship and are responsible for making sure everything goes as scheduled.

"We are busy putting together different groups responsible for different areas/sections", says Catarina Stenberg who hopes that as many people as possible will take part.

Printing brochures, preparing the placement of exhibition stands, contacting the media and selling advertising are just a few of the things the girls are working with at the moment.

Two exhibitions become one

New for this year is that the exhibition is combined with the Student Union's Career Fair.

"It is good for the students to meet even more companies and establish important contacts. And the companies are extremely interested in seeing the projects the students have made", says Johanna Haversjö.

Project leader for the Student Union's Career Fair, Oskar Kriborg, says that both events will be useful to each other and at the same time it will be easier to attract visitors.

"The exhibitors have the opportunity to be seen by more visitors through combining the two exhibitions for the two different target groups together, which naturally applies both for students and companies". At the same time the companies can become acquainted with the students' examination projects", says Oskar Kriborg.

More exhibitors

However, the exhibition will be split into two areas, one for the examination projects and one for the companies. The amount of exhibitors, both students and companies, is expected to rise this year. Hopefully around 50 exhibitors are expected to visit the Student Union's Career Fair, whereas Utexpo are hoping for around 100 different exhibitors exceeding considerably last year's figure of 80.

"It is the examination projects that interest both private persons and companies which attract both young and old. There is something for everybody", says Catarina Stenberg.
