IDE Business Fair 2020

On the 16th of December the IDE Business Fair 2020 will take place. Due to Covid-19, the fair will take place online, but it will be just as interesting and fun as in real life! Below you can find more information about the companies that are attending. The fair will take place online with a program called hopin. With this program you can talk to companies through virtual stands. There is also a speed date moment at which you will be randomly assigned to a company and have a few minutes to talk to them and get to know each other. If you are interested, make sure to sign up via this link: https://hopin.com/events/ide-business-fair. If you visit the event, you will receive a coupon for a free subway sandwich!



Spark Design

Every idea deserves to be cherished with knowledge and skill to get the best chance of succeeding. At Spark, we have been doing this for more than 25 years. By embracing every idea without hijacking it. By testing with prototypes early in the process and this way giving the idea literally shape.

By occasionally slowing down or being obstructive when ambition and feasibility lose sight of each other. But above all, we do this by giving every idea the best of our multidisciplinary product development, design and strategy services.

An internship with us means a lot of responsibility and freedom, your own workplace in the studio and 30 colleagues with a passion for design. Together we determine what you will do with us: brainstorming, devising concepts, Solidworks or jobs in the workshop.
