Kuva: Jyväskylän Kaupunki Juhana KonttinenJyväskylä´s Electricity Telecommunications Light and Audio Visual is the largest
and most traditional electrical industry exhibition in Finland. 

More than a thousand companies from 20 countries will be represented at almost 300 stands. This year’s electricity exhibition is larger than ever. The exhibition, taking place in February, now sets a sharper focus on the students of the industry. The target is clearly in the future, since today’s students will be customers, employees or even managers of the companies that are currently active in this industry. For the students and companies, the exhibition offers a great meeting place and an excellent opportunity to apply for jobs / recruit new employees.

To better catch the eye of young people, a playful contest will now be arranged for the first time for the funniest company advertisement video. Published on YouTube, the videos will be visible to all. A jury composed of students graduating from the Tampere University of Applied Sciences will select the best videos. The winners will be disclosed at the exhibition.

“The exhibition in Jyväskylä is the number one electrical industry event in Finland. Thanks to its established position, the exhibitors can expect a really large number of participants and, on the other hand, a large group of exhibitors guarantees great variety and an excellent display. The seminars and info sessions taking place during the event also deal with highly topical matters. To sum up, this is a great event that offers a lot of interesting angles to each electrician”, says Olli-Heikki Kyllönen, managing director of the Electrical Contractors´ Association of Finland (STUL).

Seminars increase skills

The exhibition is complemented with comprehensive seminar and educational programme. The areas under discussion include various topics, for example: well-being with electricity, energy certificates, small power plants, impact of automation on energy-efficiency, responsible supply chain and improved building process.

Besides topical seminars and info sessions presenting the novelties of the industry, a seminar discussing the methods for boosting career development is now arranged for the first time (Finnish title “Nostetta uralle”). It is organised by Sales and Marketing Professionals (SMKJ) and Target Headhunting Oy.

A more serious competition arranged is the contest for companies for the most innovative product. The winner will be disclosed during the guest reception on Wednesday evening, on the first exhibition day. According to exhibition director Tervakangas, dozens of product candidates have been registered in the contest. The products will be scored according to three characteristics: innovativity, novelty and usability.
