Visitor badge

A personalized visitor badge will be printed for you on-site!

The purpose of the visitor badge is to facilitate networking with attending organizations. Based on the colour of your badge, organizations can better assess why you are visiting the fair. As a visitor, you can share your data with the higher education institutions by means of a (QR) code on your badge, so that they can provide you with targeted information after the fair.
