BEFORE THE EXPO
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 Thursday, September 4.
 
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 Tudor Fieldhouse, 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 August 21 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. 
 
ADVERTISE
We are pleased to offer the option of purchasing advertisement space in our Expo Guidebooks. Full-page advertisements are $400. A half-page option is also available for $300. For more information, contact Jessica Fleenor, Marketing & Events Specialist.
