Costs - £975 for a 3m 2m stand. A limited number of 4.5m 2m stands are available at £1,400. The cost covers everything - publicity(including a mention in the Independent, the Fair Guide and on our website), lunches for two representatives, refreshments throughout the day, parking, shell booth and table and chairs plus a great welcome with staff on hand to help you load and unload. The Fair Guide, covering each day of the Fair, allows each exhibitor a quarter of a page to give an overview of their postgraduate opportunities. This entry is repeated on our website.

Feedback from previous events usually concentrates on the excellent service exhibitors feel they receive on the day and in the run up to the Fair, and on the high quality of the attendees.

The Independent are again sponsoring this Fair, so we will benefit from national publicity in the run up to the event, with adverts and editorial promoting it, including a special Supplement devoted to the Fair a couple of weeks before. We also send out leaflets and posters to all careers services UK wide, advertise in various publications including Prospects Funding Guide and Finalist, and in the local papers, and we advertise on buses and over email and the web.
