BeSt³ – the fair for work, study and further education

Austria’s largest education fair in Innsbruck

The BeSt³ (which stands for “job, study and further education“) is organized by The Federal Ministry of Education and Women, The Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy and The Job Centre Austria and already celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2016. In 2018, the Education Fair took place for the 16th time in the Tyrolean provincial capital of Innsbruck. The extensive program is aimed primarily at young people and young adults who want to orientate themselves in their educational and professional lives. For their parents too, the event can be helpful, as there is a wealth of education and training opportunities, especially in this day and age, which can really be confusing. The possibilities are manifold and can be adapted to one’s individual needs: In addition to general information on education-related topics such as apprenticeships, school leaving certificate and studies, BeSt³ also provides information on specific occupational fields and study programs, stays abroad, financial support opportunities, labor law issues and questions concerning self-employment.

During the three days of the BeSt³, the approximately 25,000 visitors expected will receive information not only at the on-site exhibitor stands, but also during exciting presentations, discussions and workshops: Topics such as youth coaching, application procedures and studies abroad will be discussed and new career opportunities presented. The focus of the entire offer is on personal advice, which allows visitors to find tailor-made training and further education opportunities.

The biennial event in the Messe Innsbruck has already established itself as a fixed point in the calendar of events of the Tyrolean provincial capital, offering young people and their families well-founded assistance with vocational and training advice.
