INFORMATION For Exhibitors

Thank you for your interest in exhibiting your organization at the inaugural Calgary Volunteer Fair!

APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR EXHIBITORS. CLICK HERE IF YOUR ORGANIZATION IS INTERESTED IN EXHIBITING AT THE 2018 CALGARY VOLUNTEER FAIR ON OCTOBER 2, 2018.

We have researched similar events by talking to organizers of fairs in other locales, including Chicago (just completed their sixth year) and Kelowna (who will be hosting their 21st! year in 2018). Kelowna sees an average of 1,000 attendees at their event each year. Chicago--a much bigger city, to be sure--had over 5,000 eager volunteers attend their event in early 2018.

Our attendee goal for year one is a minimum of 600 Calgarians seeking volunteer opportunities. To support this intent, we will be using our existing connections with local media to announce and promote the event. Our goal is for each of our exhibitors to come away with the opinion that exhibiting for a few hours at the Calgary Volunteer Fair is some of the most fruitful work they do each year in attracting new volunteers.

We will be endeavouring to keep the cost to exhibitors as low as possible. The cost to register will be $35 per organization, which will include a table and chairs for your organization's area and as much support as we can possibly give you to ensure that your experience is nothing short of excellent.

Our applications are now open! You can apply on behalf of your organization by visiting this link. Please note that we are presently anticipating only 60 available spots and therefore we do expect to be over-subscribed. We will be communicating at a later date the manner in which we will be selecting exhibitors.
