Booth Space + Signage
Each organization attending Internship Connect will have a 6’ x 30” skirted table as well as pipe and drape behind all tables. We will provide signs for all organizations indicating the company name as indicated in your registration. All signs will be hung above and behind tables so they can be easily seen. Staff will be on hand to direct you to your table the day of the event.
You may attach additional light weight posters and items to the drape and/or place a small easel and display behind your table. Please be sure to have supplies you may need with you: scissors, safety pins, tape etc. Remember to bring business cards to share with students if you want them to follow-up with you.
