Why exhibit?

Why exhibit?

What Career Live? events are aimed at 15-19 year old school leavers, careers advisors and their parents looking at post school options including: apprenticeships, part/full-time work, internships, school leaver programmes, gap year opportunities and undergraduate courses all under one roof.

The events are hosted in the NEC Birmingham, Olympia London and Exhibition Centre Liverpool ensuring that school groups across the UK can attend their nearest event location. Our In-house Schools Liaison team targets specific geographical locations as soon as a company signs up to exhibit with us and pre-registers school groups to attend our event in advance.

Our research has indicated that parents are becoming increasingly involved in career decisions. Their views have a big impact on career choices. Holding the event on both a Friday and Saturday allows parents to attend and gather information from the parent zones and parent advice seminars.

The three main benefits for organisations who exhibit with us are:

  • Recruiting school leavers who are looking at post school options immediately or in the coming school year
  • Attracting key influencers such as parents who make up one third of all of our visitors
  • Increasing employer brand awareness 

This is backed by a national marketing campaign with promotion across Heart FM, ITV & Channel 4, as well as Outdoor advertising and online promotion to parents & school leavers.
