Every year our visitors come to the fair to learn more and get familiar with different organisations. Visitors leave Contact Forum with a selection of many new employers in their minds.

Meaningful encounters

Contact Forum is a great event with the opportunity to record the most interesting applicants and find the right talent fit for your organisation in advance! Leave an image that lasts throughout the recruiting season. An attractive fair booth also works as your organisation’s business card!


Color coding – By attaching color coded stickers to name tag, visitors show their study background. Each color stands for one field of study. Employer representatives may attach colors of their interest to their stands or own name tags – matching talents & companies made easy, isn’t?

Contact Forum’s job site – In collaboration with Duunitori, we have created a job site where open positions are separated in same color coded sections. Every participating company gets to send their job ads of open positions to this job site.
