Europe's Trade Fair for Education and Training

In Cologne, Europe's trade fair for education and training will provide insight into topics related to continuing education and consulting. Didacta 2007 will be held in Cologne from Tuesday, 27th February, to Saturday, 3rd March.

The fair will focus on the future, or more specifically, on the future of continuing education. In several forum presentations, speakers will be offering forecasts, delineating trends and explaining strategies for the future. The fair, the "Continuing Education Forum" in Hall 10, A-010/B-011, will feature presentations by experts who will offer interesting insights into the sector's latest strategies and show what requirements instructors will have to meet in the future.

For 15 years now, the Professional Association of Sales Promoters and Trainers has been setting quality benchmarks by sponsoring competitions for this award. The winners in the award's two categories will be presented on the stage of the "Further Education Forum" in Hall 10. Another new feature this year will be an activity area that will give the finalists (including BMW AG) the opportunity to present their topics personally. From sales personnel training programs and individual development to organizational and human resources development, there's sure to be a topic of interest for every visitor.

The Continuing Education and Innovation Prize (WIP) is another major award that will be presented at didacta 2007. The awards ceremony, which will be held under the auspices of state Premier Jürgen Rüttgers, will begin in Hall 10 at 3 p.m. on Thursday, 1st March. The Continuing Education and Innovation Prize honors educational concepts that strike out in new directions and use unusual methods to convey professional, personnel-related, social or methodological expertise.

The specialist conference "Professional e-Learning/Aging Workforce", which will be held in Conference Room 5 at the Congress Center East on 1st March, will address the issue of how companies can preserve the valuable experience of their older employees, and how digital technologies can support them in this process. The first day of the conference will focus on the general issues that companies should pay attention to as they integrate e learning into their everyday operations, and on the technologies they can use to help them manage this process. The second day of the event will be devoted to issues related to demographic change.
