How many representatives from each organization are allowed to attend?
Due to space constraints, we ask that there be no more than 3 representatives per table. You will need to purchase an additional registration if you would like to bring more than 3 representatives.
Where should I park?
The closest parking available is in the Iowa Memorial Union or North Ramps. This parking is available on a first come first serve basis. If you are unable to park in one of these ramps, you can park in a city owned ramp - see directions. You can also pull in front of the Iowa Memorial Union (on Madison Street) to unload before parking in a ramp. Please keep in mind that the IMU Ramp gets very full and the wait time for leaving can be an hour or two, so you may save some time by parking in the North Ramp instead.
How many parking passes will I receive?
Prior to the event, you will receive hang tags (via email) to print and place in your vehicle(s) - these hang tags are for identification purposes only. Upon check-in at the fair, you will receive a parking pass for each vehicle that is parked in either the Iowa Memorial Union or North Ramp. Or we can validate your parking stub if you are parked in a City owned ramp. Keep in mind that parking is on a first come first serve basis and the parking closest to the venue (Iowa Memorial Union Ramp) fills up fast!
Will the representatives receive lunch?
Yes! Breakfast items and coffee will be available from 8-11 a.m. in the North Room. And lunch will be available from 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. in the North Room. Volunteers will be available throughout the day and would be happy to deliver beverages and snacks directly to your table.
What is included in my booth space?
Your booth space includes one 6' table with a white paper tablecloth and 2 chairs (unless you registered for two tables).
Black and Gold Partner booths will also include piping and draping.
Each booth will have access to electrical outlets.
Internet access and TV/VCR must be requested ahead of time - on the online registration form.
If you have a display that is larger or needs special set-up, please call Cindy Meis at 319-335-1023 and we will try to make special accommodations.
Where will my booth be located?
Booth assignments will be finalized one week prior to the event.
Booth locations are assigned on a first come first serve basis and alphabetical order if possible - with the earlier registrations being located in the Main Lounge and later registrations being located in the Sun Porch area (which is just off of the Main Lounge).
We also take into consideration display size and type as well as requests for internet access.
When can I set my booth up?
We encourage early set-up and will have staff available from 3:30-5 p.m. on Wednesday, September 19.
If you are unable to set up the evening of the 19th, the Main Lounge will be open at 8 a.m. on September 20.
The event begins at 11 a.m. We would like to encourage you to be completely set-up by 11 a.m. so that you will be ready for student visitors.
There will be electrical outlets available; however, we encourage you to bring extension cords with you. Please be sure that your displays can fit on or behind a standard 6' table. Fire codes require us to monitor the number of displays within the allotted space. If you have additional questions about set-up or display, please call Cindy Meis at 319-335-1023.
