BELFAIR is the annual Belgian trade fair for practice enterprises, organized by COFEP. It is usually one of the largest fairs for practice enterprises in Europe. The exhibitors are students in secondary education, higher education, as well as adult education.

Given the current COVID measures, there will be no physical BELFAIR in 2021, but COFEP, the Belgian network of practice enterprises, will organize an online fair on March 11 and 12 from 9:30 to 15:30. For the first time, a nocturne will also be organized on Thursday from 18:30 to 20:00. All practice enterprises offer a wide range of virtual products and services via video conferencing tools (Zoom/ Google Meet/ Microsoft Teams).

At BELFAIR, trainees face deadlines and are forced to leave their traditional training environment. During the trade fair, they have to convince online visitors to take a look at their range and handle negotiations in real time. BELFAIR is a unique opportunity to develop technical and personal skills.

In addition to trading activities, COFEP will also organize several online competitions such as an Elevator Pitch and a Mystery Shopping competition. Trainees can win prizes for their practice enterprises.

Both exhibitors and visitors are welcome to participate in this event. Are you interested in the “learning by doing” method? COFEP is happy to invite you to BELFAIR as a visitor. At the fair you will discover how trainees deal with virtual purchases and sales.
