SHIP YOUR MATERIALS
Send your materials to the Center for Career Development (CCD), Attn: Career Expo, 6100 Main St. MS 521, Houston TX 77005. Clearly mark all displays and boxes with “Career Expo” and your company name. All materials mailed to this address will be at your booth the morning of the Expo. Due to limited storage space, materials cannot arrive before Friday, January 31.
In planning your materials, please note that your booth contains one six-foot table and two chairs. All displays must be freestanding and cannot be wider than six feet. Space is limited; please be mindful of your neighbors and keep displays within your booth area.
Due to the layout of the recreation center, we unfortunately are unable to guarantee access to electricity for your booth. If you have an absolute need for electricity, please let us know prior to January 24 and we will do our best to accommodate you. If you do request electricity, be sure to bring a heavy duty extension cord and duct tape. We strongly encourage you to bring displays that do not require electricity.
We are pleased to offer the option of purchasing ads in our printed guidebooks this year (full page - $400 and half-page $300). Ads must be submitted by January 13. For more information about purchasing an ad, please contact Alexis Garcia.
