All Exhibitor-related information asked for on the following pages should be entered online. We can change or update your attendee badge information up to 2 weeks prior, therefore, do not delay submitting other information requested. Please complete at your earliest. Thank you.

Exhibit Booth Sign
Signs measuring 3.5 feet wide by 8 inches high are supplied to each exhibiting organization. Two lines of text are printed on the sign and hung above every booth. You decide what you would like printed but it is suggested the facility name is present on the top line and the location of the facility on the second line. It is also recommended that each line is kept to 30 characters or less to keep the font size from being reduced.

Booth Location
Booth locations are assigned based on the Exhibit Hall layout, attendee traffic flow, direct competitors, sponsorship level and other considerations at the sole discretion of The Marskell Group.

Booth Attendee & Badge Information
Registration includes two (2) Exhibitor Booth Attendee passes. Names of those attending are required for each city you are participating in so we can provide name tags. PLEASE INCLUDE NAME, TITLE, MOBILE PHONE & E-MAIL ADDRESS. This information will not be shared publicly and is for our internal use only. If you need additional passes, there is a $150 per additional pass in Toronto.

If you haven’t finalized who is attended, that’s ok. You can change that information as we go. Please do not delay submitting other information while waiting for exhibitor badge details.

In Vancouver, a box lunch will be delivered to your Exhibit Booth. In Toronto, a light breakfast and a buffet lunch are supplied by The Marskell Group. Please advise of any dietary concerns.

Shipping

The Marskell Group, LLC does NOT provide shipping services. We are not affiliated with nor do we partner with any particular shipping company.

SHIPPING TIPS:

  • Attending both Vancouver & Toronto? We suggest that you ship materials separately to each and, perhaps, carry a display on the plane between shows or something similar.
  • If you are shipping from the United States, there could be Customs delays
  • We recommend using smaller displays in your booth to minimize shipping costs and potential delays
  • Please discuss your timing needs carefully with your shipper. It’s important for your shipping vendor to understand exactly when your shipment(s) should be available back in your office.
  • It’s often helpful to have zip ties, tape or other packing materials available onsite. We have very limited access within the hotels.
  • Please note: If you are shipping on your own, please take into account possible customs delays and hotel storage restrictions.

Exhibitor Tips for Success

To ensure a successful event we have listed a few bullet points to help you maximize your results. They might seem basic, but we see the same easy to avoid mistakes at every Career Fair.

Before the Event:

  • Plan to make your booth stand out
  • Consider bringing a map to showcase your location(s)
  • Bring some trinkets to draw attendees to your booth
  • Make sure qualified attendees are given your contact information so they can follow up
  • Set realistic short and long-term event recruiting goals
  • If possible, come prepared to make hiring offers on the spot
  • Have a follow-up plan already in place for both attendees you spoke with and the database you will be receiving
  • Don’t delay contacting your preferred shipping service: avoid potential delays

During the Event:

  • Stay off your phone
  • If possible, stand up to connect better with the attendees
  • Make notes in a notebook about your conversation and follow up needed
  • Smile ?
  • Remember the candidate might not fit your need or experience required today, but a year or two from now they might. Make sure to capture their contact information so you can stay in touch – you might want to hire them in a year or two. The student in front of you will have 2 years of experience very soon
  • Be ready to make an offer on the spot to key candidates, or you might lose the prospect to another recruiter a few booths down the hall ready to make an offer

After the Event:

  • Execute your follow up plan to contact the attendees you spoke with and the database you will receive after the event
  • It might take 3, 4 or 8 “touches” with a candidate in the form of emails, letters and phone calls to close a deal
  • Many of our very successful exhibitors are closing deals now that might have started 2 or 3 years ago. You are likely to see the same person at our event next year!
