Greater Copenhagen is home to thousands of talented internationals, who come here to work or study.  They bring unique skills, global experiences, and new perspectives. By participating in our job and career fair at International Citizen Days, your organisation gains direct access to a diverse talent pool and the opportunity to engage with potential employees who attend the event actively looking for new career opportunities - for example through professional career matchmaking event. 

New members, volunteers and visitors

What forms of participation are possible?

We welcome different forms of participation, including sponsorship, exhibition stands, workshops, stage talks, and other types of activities. During the application process, you are able to choose and specify your preferred form(s) of participation. Please note that the event is network-oriented for which reason all organisations involved are expected to engage in dialogues with the guests. 

Exhibition stand

A stand in the exhibition area is highly recommended. It is a great way to present your organisation and engage in fruitful dialogues with guests. You can have a stand for either one or two days, choosing between two different stand models (a free standing high table or a stand with back and side panels). All stands are provided free of charge and come with basic equipment (a high table, two bar stools and electricity). Additional equipment and brand visibility at the stand are the responsibility of each organisation. You will receive further information on this once your participation is confirmed. If you do get a stand, it is expected that your stand is manned the entire day of the event and that you engage in dialogues with the guests in fluent English.

Stage talk

Would you like to share your expertise on a specific topic relevant for international citizens in Greater Copenhagen? You can then apply to be part of the official stage programme at the event. There are three stages with talks of approx. 30 minutes incl. Q&A The talk must have a broad relevance and at the same time be non-commercial, presented in fluent English and be representative of the industry or field concerned. If more than one organisation wish to cover the same topic, a joint talk may be coordinated by the organiser. 

Activity

If you would like to contribute with a programme point outside of the stage, you can apply for a place in the activities programme. This is a good option for all interactive programme points, e.g. networking sessions, drop-in activities by sports clubs or dance studios, creative/craft workshops or activities for children who make up 20% of all guests on Saturday. There is space for all-day drop-in activities and time-limited activities of 20-30 minutes.
