SFU GeoFair 2020

The Earth Science Student Union at Simon Fraser University invites you to attend our annual Geofair which will be held at our downtown campus on 7th February 2020.  We are keen to get as many industry representatives to this event as possible in order to help educate the next generation of Geoscientists. This event will be open to students from SFU, UBC, BCIT, Douglas etc.

It is completely free for industry professionals to attend, and we invite you set up a table with a few posters and information about your company and your current projects. This is also a great opportunity to meet potential and future candidates for your teams.  We are hoping to have a variety of companies attend our event as we have students that are invited from all backgrounds from geoscience to engineering to environmental disciplines. We realise that between RoundUp, PDAC and the various regional talks that there are many events happening but this is one of the few events that caters directly to students and is conveniently located downtown.

We are also looking for event sponsors so if you are interested in that please do not hesitate to contact me. The ideal sponsorship is $500 and for that we will add your name to the event signage and mention your support during the event and through our social media channels.

Finally, we have the opportunity for formal presentations during the afternoon, and so welcome anyone from your organization that may want to deliver a short 10-minute talk to the attendees.

The details are as follows:
Date: Friday, February 7th
Time: 12:30-5:00 PM
Location: SFU Harbour Center (515 West Hastings)

Lunch will be provided to industry members as a gesture of appreciation during set-up. The remainder of the event will have catered appetizers and a cash bar.

Please RSVP by January 31st if you would like to reserve a table to set up a booth/poster. After this date, it is still possible to reserve a table if we have extras, or you are still able to attend as a “free agent” and have students approach and talk to you.
