The Teknologia fair will offer programme at five different programme points as well as the stands of the exhibitors. The themes of the programme include, among other things, coding, robotics, artificial intelligence and machine learning as well as the development of digitalisation.
On 5 November, the first day of the fair, the programme is targeted especially at students in the field of technology, who can discuss different career options with representatives of companies in the field of technology at the stands of the exhibitors. The stage programme also includes information briefings and addresses to future technology professionals.
