Can I register for more than one table?

No. Due to space limitations at the event venue, you may only register for one 6 foot table.

Registration fees:

Registration fee includes one 6 foot table, wireless internet access, parking passes, and lunch and beverages for up to 3 representatives.  If more than 3 representatives plan to attend, you may order additional parking passes, lunches, and beverages. 

Single 6 foot table, Corporate:  $850

Single 6 foot table, Non-profit/Government:  $350


Additional representatives:  $40/representative (up to 5 additional representatives). Food and parking for 3 representatives included with registration.  If you will have additional representatives, please indicate the number on your registration form. If you do not order food/parking for your extra representatives at the time of registration, they will not receive food/parking at the career fair.

Access to electrical outlet at table:  $40 If your display requires access to an electrical outlet or if your electronic devices need to be charged, please add access to an electrical outlet at the time of registration.  If you do not select this at the time of registration, you will not be placed in a location near an outlet and you will not be able to request access to an electrical outlet on the day of the event.

Event sponsor:  $300 As an event sponsor, your company name will appear on the e-version of the student program, Career Fair + app, student flyers, volunteer t-shirts, the Engineering Expo website, displays throughout the Ohio Union, and other publicity material.

What size display may I bring?

Space is very limited at the engineering career fairs and companies.  When determining which display to send or bring, please keep in mind that the display will need to fit on or behind a 6 foot table and must not interfere with the table space assigned to employers next to you. If your display interferes with the table space next to you, you will be asked to remove the display.
