On all three days of the fair the Austrian booth “Highlight your future. Study in Austria" acted as a meeting place for representatives of Austrian higher education institutions, partners and interested visitors from the education industry. The Austrian booth provided information about Austria as location for higher education, offered consultation appointments and initiated new partnerships between higher education institutions in Austria and in other countries.
"Highlight your evening" was the motto on the evening of the first day of the fair: The OeAD and the Austrian foreign trade office in Helsinki (Advantage Austria) hosted an Austrian reception as part of the EAIE. The Austrian ambassador Maximilian Hennig was one of the approximately 140 international guests of the reception.
The 31st EAIE Conference and Exhibition was held in Helsinki in 2019 under the motto of "Encompassing all voices". With 6,200 visitors from the education industry and 240 exhibitors from 95 countries it was the biggest EAIE conference to date.
The OeAD would like to thank the participating higher education institutions and visitors of the Austrian booth – and also Advantage Austria and all guests for the successful evening reception.
