VMI at Technology Plaza in IJsselhallen
VMI invested in future young technical personnel by promoting technology at the Technology Plaza during the Education Fair on 6 and 7 November 2013 in the IJsselhallen, Zwolle. The technology sector is in dire need of young people who choose for technical training. If technology businesses are not willing to invest in new personnel, soon they will have a problem.
For this purpose, on 6 and 7 November the IJsselhallen in Zwolle were “the place to be.” The Education Fair in Zwolle, intended for VMBO class 3 and 4, HAVO and their parents, offers a comprehensive overview of training opportunities and is a true information center for everyone who must choose a continuation study. On the Technology Plaza, which is part of the Education Fair, a total of eight businesses made presentations in the fields of electrical and installation technology, mechanical engineering and automotive. Along with counterpart businesses, VMI used demonstrations and videos to show what the technology sector has to offer.
“In total there were 16,000 visitors over the two days. Especially between 16:00 and 20:00 it was very busy with young people 14 to 16 and their parents. The interactive approach was a hit,” said Martijn van der Veen and Erwin Zweers enthusiastically. Both of them spent a day at the Technology Plaza on behalf of VMI and they consider it a worthwhile investment.
