Many thanks to all of the businesses who are planning to have an interactive presence in this year’s event. Your commitment in helping to shape our future workforce is important to our region and greatly appreciated. We could not do it without you.
As we plan for October 18 and 19 we would like to provide several important details below:
SET-UP is Noon – 6:00 pm, Wednesday, October 17. Please arrive to the rear of the Exhibition Hall (largest building) at “Exhibitor Check-in” so we can assist you in locating your booth(s).
Event Days: Thursday, October 18 and Friday, October 19, 2018
Event Times: 8:00 am – 2:00 pm on both days.
We ask you to report to the front entrance (foyer) area of the Exhibition Hall (largest building) at 8:30 am on Thursday, October 18 for a quick welcome and exhibitor orientation.
Exhibitors are assigned to a particular ZONE and each zone will have 15 to 30 exhibitors. There will be a total of 5 zones.
Students will enter beginning at zone 1 and make their way to zone 5. Students will be in groups of approximately 400 (based on school size) and will spend 15 minutes only in each zone. They will make their way to the exhibits that interest them so please do not think that you will have 400 students at one time.
Please do not provide students with any literature, food, beverage, candy, etc. Nothing can be provided to the students
We are excited to host this wonderful career exploration event for the 12,000+ public school 8th grade students throughout RVA and could not do it without your participation.
Together, we are making a difference and for that, we sincerely thank you!
