Teaming up to combat the shortage of skilled labour

Following the success enjoyed when it was held for the first time, CareFair is to continue its partnership with IFAS, the trade fair for the healthcare market. In 2018, IFAS will once again be hosting CareFair, the Swiss careers fair for healthcare professions.

It would be fair to hail IFAS 2016 as a roaring success, as exhibitors, visitors from the industry and the event’s organisers will be happy to confirm. CareFair, Switzerland’s first-ever careers fair for healthcare professions, was combined with the trade fair for the first time last year, proving a valuable addition that benefited everyone involved. Both sides have therefore agreed that this successful cooperation between IFAS and CareFair is to continue and have signed a contract to renew this highly promising partnership for 2018.

A successful double act
François Muller, founder and CEO of CareFair Schweiz GmbH, says: “We had excellent feedback from exhibitors after the first CareFair. So we knew we wanted to continue with the concept and, in particular, our partnership with IFAS.” In 2018, CareFair will once again be providing a platform for showcasing and advertising healthcare professions. The fair is also intended to inspire people to choose a career in medicine or care work, thus making a small contribution to tackling the shortage of skilled labour across the healthcare sector. IFAS Show Director Heinz Salzgeber states: “We are really delighted that, with CareFair, we will be able once again to generate real added value for visitors from the industry and make the best use of our work together.”

Off to a successful start
With the contract now signed by the two parties, the 2018 event can be regarded as having got off to a successful start as both event organisers have already begun making arrangements. More details of CareFair and how to register will be available from July 2017 at www.carefair.ch or by e-mailing contact@carefair.ch.
