West Coast Virtual Fairs

About this event

Being the first of its kind in British Columbia, the West Coast Virtual Fair is a collaboration between the University of British Columbia (UBC), Simon Fraser University (SFU), and the University of Victoria (UVic). These 3 institutions are pleased to offer students and alumni the exciting opportunity to connect with hundreds of employers and graduate schools at the Career, Volunteer, and Graduate Schools event this fall.

The event will take place on a virtual fair platform called Eventus. Go around exhibitor booths to learn more about their organizations and their opportunities. Over 200 employers, graduate schools, and charities are invited to this one-of-a-kind virtual event. Attendees do not need to be present for the entire fair, and are encouraged to schedule breaks in between sessions.

Fair format

  • 1-on-1 sessions: Enjoy 15-minute private conversations with exhibitors using the video conferencing tool embedded in the platform.
