BELFAIR is the annual Belgian fair for practice enterprises, organised by COFEP. It is usually one of the largest fairs for practice enterprises in Europe. At a traditional BELFAIR, we welcome more than 230 exhibitors and 2500 visitors during the course of 2 days. The exhibitors are practice enterprises from secondary education, higher education and adult education.

International trade fair for practice enterprises

The exhibitors are practice enterprises run by students in secondary and higher education, as well as adult job seekers. All practice enterprises offer a wide range of virtual products and services.

At BELFAIR, trainees are confronted with deadlines and are forced to leave their traditional training environment. At the trade fair they have to convince visitors to take a look at their range and handle negotiations in real time. BELFAIR is a unique opportunity to develop technical and personal skills.

BELFAIR 2022 will take place on 10 & 11 March in the Nekkerhal in Mechelen, near Brussels.

COFEP, the team behind BELFAIR, organizes different competitions such as an Elevator Pitch and Mystery Shopping competition. Trainees can win real prizes for their practice enterprise, such as tablets and mobile phones, offered by COFEP.

In November, regional trade fairs take place to prepare trainees for the international trade fair. Regional fairs in Belgium are not organized by COFEP, but by schools, colleges or training centers for adults, so trainers get the opportunity to plan and organize an entire event with their trainees.

Are you interested in the “learning by doing” methodology? COFEP has the pleasure to invite you to its annual international trade fair for practice enterprises. At BELFAIR you will discover how trainees handle virtual purchases and sales.
