Communication campaign launched with great success
Austria has a strong economic network. As the first step, the campaign was announced in the Styrian Economic Chamber’s newsletter, which was opened and read by more than 10,000 members. We were impressed to see that our Facebook site had gained 1,000 likes two days after its publication. In the meantime, this site has a readership of more than 12,000. According to the Styrian Economic Chamber President, Josef Herk, we are well on track because “our goal is to win as many fans as possible for Graz as the venue for the European Skills Competition 2020”.
The widespread support in Austria is also sensational:
“Over the past few weeks and months, we have made every effort and worked closely together for this major event, and we are delighted that we can rely on such widespread support even now, before the decision has been taken”, said Herk. “This support is extremely well deserved by our highly trained professionals and our excellent training companies. After all, in no other country is the dual vocational system as successful as in Austria – as demonstrated by our many successes at EuroSkills and WorldSkills shows”.
