A virtual networking event for students and companies
The Antwerp University Artesis Plantijn organised a digital internship fair where more than 250 IT students and 80 companies could meet each other. On the one hand companies could present their IT-projects and find the perfect intern for it. On the other hand students could discover which companies match their interests.
Each year we organise an internship fair to bring students and companies together to find the right intern(ship). This event normally takes places on campus, but this year we chose to organise a virtual event. Thanks to the Thola-platform we were able to simulate the sensation of being present on a real-life fair. For both the organisers and the participants it was a successful online event!

Multifunctional billboards for networking
Each company had their own personalised billboard. The students could easily get in contact with the organisations via these interactive billboards by using the following features:
- Let’s talk: a round table conversation via Microsoft Teams where student and companies could virtually meet each other.
- About us: a link to the company’s website where the students could learn more, check out vacancies and find the contact details.
- Drop business card: students could leave their virtual business cards in a GDPR-proof way with the companies
