Welcome to LARM2021! Below you find all information needed in order to prepare for this year's Fair. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Project Group of LARM2021.

LARM2021 - A Virtual Fair

Tuesday, February 9, 2021, LARM will for the first time take place as a virtual Fair on LARM’s virtual platform. This will give you the opportunity to network with exhibitors wherever you are! A virtual Fair is similar to a physical one, except that you interact with the exhibitors by chats and video calls. Before the Fair takes place, you as a student will be able to create your own profile so that you can learn about the exhibitors in their virtual stalls. In the stalls you can find potential job vacancies, information about the exhibitor, FAQ and in some cases also a describing video. During the Fair Day, you are able to talk to exhibitors, watch our very own live stream as well as win fabulous prizes in our competitions!

How Do I Find the Fair?

The virtual Fair will take place on LARM’s virtual platform via Graduateland. Below you can find the link to the Fair, where you are able to create your profile today! Find the fair [here](https://fair.larm.lintek.liu.se/sv/event/4587).

Fika and Goodiebags

What is a Fair Day without free things, things to eat or coffee? In order to maximize the Fair Day of LARM2021 there will be an excellent opportunity to order a fikabox along with a goodiebag which can be retrieved during the Fair Day at one of the designated pick up spots situated in student areas in both Linköping and Norrköping. The fikabox contains a wide range of drinkable and eatable products from LARM2021 partners. A few examples are mineraldrinks, bars and fikabread. The goodiebag contains things from for example campushallen and from companies participating at the Fair. There will also be discount vouchers and things that benefits the student in their studies and everyday life. More detailed information regarding what the fikabox and goodiebag contains will be on LARMs social media, so keep your eyes open! Of course everything is completely FREE but since there are a limited number it is first come first get. The form that you order this beauties with will be published on the 27th January. Due to the current circumstances we want to be very clear that we have well thought out routines regarding handing out fikaboxes and goodiebags in a corona-safe way, nothing is left to chance. ![goodiebags-0be883aaac7e64c3b79377201309d9f2.png](https://storage.googleapis.com/larm-media/goodiebags_0be883aaac7e64c3b79377201309d9f2_5fa1ccb673/goodiebags_0be883aaac7e64c3b79377201309d9f2_5fa1ccb673.png)

The more points you have, the bigger the chance to win. The first three students to be selected will have the opportunity to choose between our three top prizes. First place will be able to choose between all three top prizes, second place between the two left and the third place receives the last prize. The rest of the prizes will be raffled without the chance to choose. There will also be a prize to the student with most points of all in total.

Carbon Offset

At LARM, we are continuously working with sustainability and finding new ways to reduce our carbon offset. By including the carbon offset in the entry fee, all the exhibitors contribute as well. We have a partnership with klimatkompensera.se and will participate in two projects this year that are Gold Standard certified.
