The BIG Fair as part of CareersFest:

11am to 3pm, Wednesday 18th October 2017

The Hub and The Herbert Gallery

The BIG Fair is the centre piece of CU CareersFest 2017 which involves a weeks’ worth of employability related and employer led activities open to all University faculties and year groups during w/c 16th October 2017.
We are therefore keen to engage employers from a range of industries. As this is our autumn term flagship event, it offers an outstanding opportunity for you to promote 2018 graduate and work experience opportunities to students at our busiest time on campus! 
The event will be fully marketed, organised and facilitated by staff from the Coventry University Group.

This year, the BIG Fair is set to be bigger and better and we are offering excellent value for money with our exhibitor and sponsorship packages.
(Please note: Sponsorship packages are subject to limited availability, so please email us ASAP at if you wish to find out more about this offer!)


Once you have registered your interest you will be issued with a ticket via email. Please note this only confirms your expression of interest to attend. We will then be in touch to notify employers if you have been allocated a stand space.

As the fair is part of ‘CareersFest’ week on campus, we would be happy to hear from employers who have particularly relatable campus campaigns or who wish to

bring additional branded festival like activities onto campus as part of our 2017 ‘CareersFest’. You can email us at this or if you have any other queries.

We look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you on campus soon for what proves to be fantastic event!
