Registration includes room for three representatives at your booth. Any additional representatives must be registered in advance. Due to space constraints, we ask that you do not register more than five representatives per table and that you have only registered representatives at your table. If you have additional representatives that arrive the day of the event who are not registered, you will receive an invoice after the event of $150 for each additional representative. This includes representatives who split shifts.

Planning Ahead and Items to Bring Day of the Fair

  • Temperature
    • Mariucci is an ice hockey arena, and the temperature is much cooler. If you tend to feel cold, plan to wear extra layers, especially if standing in one place for longer periods of time.
  • Practice
    • There is a possibility that the UMN Gopher hockey team or figure skating team may hold practice during the career fair. This is beyond our control. If practice does take place, events on the ice may become louder during the fair. We apologize in advance.
  • Catered Lunch Provided
    • A hot catered buffet and pie bar will be provided for the representatives included in your invoice.
  • Business Cards
    • This will make check-in much smoother but is not required.
  • Name Tag
    • To reduce printing, we ask that you bring your own name tag.
  • Power
    • Power is not provided to every booth, and you will need to pay $50 to request it. Any requests to add power after Wednesday, Aug. 28, will be denied.

Confirmation details will be sent once registration has been approved.
