Partners are encouraged to bring stands or other materials for the exhibition. It can be done by having own stands or by using the IC network´s stand as a facility for presenting your region, city, school or business etc. Members of the IC network and others who are interested in the topics are warmly welcome to take part in the event.

Especially we would like to offer the idea to bring students or other young people who could work at the stands. This is also an opportunity for them to learn about how international business exhibitions are made and to connect with each other.
