Viexpo has years of experience of coordinating fair appearances and in arranging joint stands. Every year Viexpo organizes several opportunities for Finnish companies to participate as exhibitors in leading international fairs in a variety of fields.

Integrated fair services

Viexpo is the official Finnish partner of several international fair organizers, and coordinates and administrates the participation of the companies to fairs all over the world. With the help of Viexpo, you can enter the fair in a joint or separate stand. The joint stand is cost-effective and offers good visibility. If you choose a separate stand, you can select the location of the stand yourself and the stand will be executed according to your requirements.

 

Successful fair appearance is a result of rigorous preparation. Viexpo offers companies a preparation package which includes information about the market, sparring, finding and contacting potential clients and partners, arranging meetings at the fair, analysis of competition and listings of suitable media contacts.

 

During the fair Viexpo offers on-site-support to serve the exhibitors at the fair. Viexpo also offers help to arrange meetings at the fair and to participate in the meeting if needed.

 

After the fair, Viexpo offers a follow up package which consists of contacting potential clients and partners for the company.

 

Companies can choose overall fair package or separate parts of it according to their needs. This way, the companies can have the best suited, custom made, cost-effective service according to their own desires and needs.
