BeSt³ – the Job, Training and Education Fair in Vienna
Every year at the beginning of March, BeSt³ is staged at the Wiener Stadthalle. Then, for four days, everything revolves around the areas of jobs, studies, trainings and further education. More than 350 exhibitors present their varied offers and answer the audience's questions. An extensive accompanying program provides insights into innovative educational paths and highlights current trends in the world of work. In 2018, around 75,000 visitors took the opportunity to inform themselves at the largest education fair in Austria and receive expert advice.
The next BeSt³ Vienna will take place from 7 to 10 March 2019. The fair is open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 9 am to 6 pm and on Sunday from 9 am to 5 pm. Admission is free!
