Be part of it

A Europe-wide mega event such as EuroSkills 2020 can only succeed with the dedicated support of a great many people. And wouldn’t it feel great to be part of such an event? EuroSkills 2020 offers so many different ways to get involved – for companies, organisations, associations, media and private individuals alike.

Whether you’re a partner, promotor, sponsor or volunteer: this event is a win for everybody. Partners and sponsors will benefit from the event’s ideal image transfer and be able to enjoy opportunities such as major-league networking at European level.

Success is always a team effort. That’s why we regard partnerships as a form of cooperation in which performance and reward are finely balanced. A large number of services and packages have been put together, which take into account our partners’ different budgets and requirements yet can still be used as a framework for tailoring individual packages. Our overriding goal is to achieve fair and mutually advantageous cooperation.


EuroSkills 2020 will not only be the top event of the year 2020, it will also be one of the biggest events on the calendar in Graz. Expect dimensions of a massive scale – because this is what is coming our way, from the contests on site, the side events organised with Styrian companies and major international and national media interest in the European Championship of Skills. An enormous input of help from many sources – including support from our businesses – is now essential if we are to master this challenge and to live up to Austria’s reputation as one of the truly great event organisers.

An event of the size of EuroSkills 2020 can only be organised with the help of some 600 volunteers. They are important “ambassadors” of the event and will make sure that the event runs smoothly and is professionally organised. They are the faces of the event and shape the impression our national and international guests will have. They will be the liaison officers and points of contact for some 10,000 visitors, 650 contestants from 30 nations and about 100 sponsors. While the event profits from their enthusiasm, the volunteers will also benefit from being part of the EuroSkills 2020 family for one intensely exciting and emotional week. They will gather important practical experience, get to know new jobs, they will be part of an international network where valuable contacts can be established and they can look behind the scenes of a great international event.
