The ECDL Switzerland team attended the largest education fair in Switzerland, Swissdidac and Worlddidac, from 7 to 9 November 2018 in Bern. The fair takes place every two years and offers a platform for providers of educational services, such as test systems, materials, or books, to exhibit their services, attracting approximately 17,000 visitors.
ECDL Switzerland handed out 3,500 branded coffee cups to visitors at the entrance, each featuring their booth number to lure them to the stand where free coffee, tea or orange juice was available. Over a thousand people actually came with the cup to the booth to get it filled.
Aside from this strategy ECDL Switzerland was very pleased to meet many exisiting customers as well as a large number of exciting new leads. Teacher training, as well as programming tests, were hot topics. This was the first time that the ECDL Computing module was introduced to the general public after the launch of the test to test centres in autumn 2018.
