The first-year business students at VAMK arranged an international trade fair as a part of their English language and communication course. The companies and the products were made up for the purpose of practicing English communication skills.


The fair attracted a lot of VAMK students and staff.

The sales pitch emphasizing the benefits of the product and service was in the center of the oral presentations, but in addition the company sales reps at the stands had to know the features of the product.

There were also different competitions and questionnaires to attract customers to visit and at the same time to collect information about the visitors for later contacts. In addition, samples were also there for view –and for tasting. Special sales offers completed the fair experience.


Benita and Nina had a business idea of online cake company.


Jeri, Petteri and Matias enjoyed the international atmosphere.


The fair day has been surprisingly fun although it felt a little stressful beforehand, said Veera, Emilia and Hilda who sold health water.
