We’re also arranging own streaming events for the different student unions from different universities. We do marketing directly to universities, student unions and different recruitment channels. The pre-registration to our visitors opens in December, which is when we’ll get the first information about our visitors.
Can the fair be billed for 2020 or 2021 and what is the cancellation policy?
Early Bird registrations can be cancelled free of charge until the end of October 2020. We charge a 50% pre-registration fee in the autumn of 2020 if a company that has previously signed up for the physical event (2021) and wants to move their participation to the 2022 event.
A company can cancel their registration for 14 days after signing up by informing us with a written notice. If a company wants to cancel their attendance later than 14 days after the registration, they will be charged half (50%) of the registration fee if the cancel happens before 1.11.2020. If participation in the event is cancelled later than 1.11.2020, a full registration fee (100%) will be charged.
