SPONSOR FORM

Kentucky and southern Indiana colleges/universities can participate as an exhibitor. Create a booth by uploading information about your school, business programs, videos, links to social media, etc. Staff your booth with 2-4 representatives, and have one-on-one chats with students from around the state. Each booth representative is able to engage in 2-3 chats at once. When students connect you will be able to see information about the student such as grade level, favorite subject in school, and career interests. A handy feature included within the platform is a notification setting which “dings” when a student has entered your booth and wants to chat. Hello, multitasking! The platform is very user-friendly, and KyCPA will supply support in creating your booth; it shouldn’t take more than 30-45 minutes to setup. Also note, if you participate in multiple FAB Career Days, you will not have to recreate your booth each time, simply update as needed. Once you’ve selected the exhibitor level that works best for you, please complete the form and return it to Samantha Soutar at ssoutar@kycpa.org by Nov. 30.
