Are you interested in sponsoring or exhibiting at ECF 2022 - 2023?

ECF Career Fairs offer an excellent opportunity to interact with a diverse group of job seekers, students and new immigrants. Increase your visibility and organization’s exposure to markets by becoming a Sponsor or Exhibitor: hold a learning lounge presentation, support an interactive gallery, get some branding & advertising, or network via a creative exhibit booth at these important fairs.

We take the fairs where YOUR MARKET is – this season we offer the Education and Career Fairs at no less than five (5) locations in British Columbia and three (3) locations in Ontario. Continue reading below for additional information.

To access more details regarding Sponsorship and Exhibit opportunities, or to reserve your booth at the upcoming Education and Career fairs, please fill out our Expression of Interest Form below.


Why participate in the ECF Education & Career Fairs?

  • Brand awareness: Align your brand with great opportunities. Your logo displayed at key spaces at the fair, will lend a sense of familiarity to participants and let them build an early report and loyalty with your brand.
  • Top candidates: Our fairs can also be excellent sources for young talent. Here your recruiters can connect with students, who are soon to graduate, or graduates, with degrees in relevant fields.
  • Timesaving: Introduce recruitment managers to the talent on a much more meaningful level than online, and at higher volumes—all within a 4 to 5-hour event.
  • Face to face interaction: Face to face communication offers your organization opportunities to interact directly with your future workforce and expose you directly to their culture.
  • Networking: Refresh old connections and make new ones with other role players in your industry.
  • Reach for the future – introduce new services, technology and opportunities to attendees.

Become a Sponsor

Capture attendee attention, increase your exhibit booth's visitors, and improve your brand recognition by having your organization's logo placed in more than one area of the virtual fair.

Create a Learning Experience

Lead a workshop or learning lounge session and all eyes will be on you in this closed setting. This could be your best opportunity to teach attendees a new skill or give them insight into your organization.

Leave a Digital Footprint

Take full advantage of the virtual environment. Right now everyone is online, and we have a medley of digital opportunities that will help you reach ECF attendees and for our attendees to reach you pre-event and post-event.
