Exhibitor Tips

  1. Staffing. Expect a steady stream of students during exhibit hours. There are no other conference activities during this time frame.
  2. Who should staff your booth. Some exhibitors use human resource professionals, others have accounting professionals and some have both. You might also consider a mix of younger and experienced staff to represent your organization. What is most important is that the person in the booth knows what is expected.

    Staffers should:
    • Know what types of career options are available for accounting professionals within the company, not just the current job openings.
    • Know if the company is currently hiring and for what positions.
    • Know if they are expected to screen resumes and students, or just collect resumes.
    • Know who the primary contact is for interested students.
    • Have a set of questions used for screening.
  1. Dress Code. Students are told to think of this as an interview and to dress professionally. Some exhibitors have commented that they felt underdressed.
  2. Handouts. Most exhibitors bring handouts. You won’t need a handout for each student. We suggest that you bring about 75 handouts.  Many exhibitors have candy or a free gift to make their booth more interesting to students.
  3. Business cards. Students are told to ask for business cards, so bring lots with you.
  4. Door prizes. Students will be encountering many potential employers; ensure your name sticks out as an employer of choice. Establish your place in students' memories with a door prize donation. To donate, contact Michael Wells at mwells@oldrepublictitle.com.
  5. Schedule. Plan your day accordingly:
    • Move in: 8:00 - 9:45 a.m. (Anderson Center, 4th floor)
    • Move out: 1:00 - 2:00 p.m.
    • Show hours: 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
  1. Loading, unloading, and booth preparation. Anderson Center and conference personnel are unable to assist with move-in and/or set-up of booth. If you need assistance, it must be arranged with Cenaiko Expo Inc.
  2. Student tips. Read the student tips so you know what they know.
  3. Talk to us. Conference staff are assigned to help exhibitors. Visit the registration desk or find a conference ambassador in the exhibit hall for assistance.
