The goal of the fair is to present on one platform the versatile European study opportunities for the Singaporean young people and their parents. The visitors to the fair have an opportunity to take part in live chats and webinars with the representatives of different higher education institutions.

The global COVID 19 pandemic has brought about new modes of operation also to the international education export. Virtually organized fairs are one way of carrying out marketing in different parts of the world.
