Why participate in The Go-Abroad Fair?

For 7 years now, OGZ has been organising the event for young people who are considering an adventure abroad: The Go-Abroad Fair. This event has the widest selection of options in the Netherlands in the field of studies, internships, volunteering, high school programs and language courses abroad. Young people with the ambition to go abroad explore their options and need information about what is involved in such a trip. Organisations and (educational) institutions at The Go-Abroad Fair offer these adventurous youngsters the necessary possibilites, tips, insights and tools.

The value of going abroad for young people

For young people, it is becoming increasingly easier to go abroad temporarily. Borders are fading and the possibilities are endless, from studying and doing an internship to volunteering, and from a language trip to working as an au pair. Many Dutch students are eager to go abroad and are open to discover new cultures. In the context of personal development, it is therefore logical that educational institutions encourage young people to gain experience abroad. The advantages for young people are numerous.

Present yourself to young people with foreign ambitions

At The Go-Abroad Fair, your organisation or institution has the opportunity to present itself and get to know Dutch youngsters from the direct target group and their parents/counselors. It is in your best interest to get in touch early with (prospective) students, future interns/employees and other young people with ambitions to go abroad. At the fair, you can tell them all about the opportunities that your organisation or (educational) institution provides. Or give them inspiration about everything that is involved in the journey, the stay, etc. The Go-Abroad Fair is an ideal platform for this and it is no coincidence that more than 8,000 visitors attend this fair every year.

This is in it for you
