The purpose of this article to help event hosts use the Booth Selection Tool to allow their employers/exhibitors select their own booths.
3 things must be true before event hosts can enable the Booth Selection Tool.
At least one map must exist in the fair
At least one booth must be registered on a map in the fair
At least one employer must have a "Booth Selection Login Email Address" associated with their profile.
See the paragraphs below for more details on how to ensure each step above is completed.
The map setup for Booth Selection is the same process as for any other map in Career Fair Plus. Send your map to our support address as a pdf. We will register the booths on the map and let you know when you can begin assigning booths or open booth selection.
Adding Booth Selection Login Email Addresses to employers
There are 2 ways to add Booth Selection Login Email Address to employers. The email address associate with the employer will be that employer's key when open the Booth Selection Tool to ensure they are accessing the correct employer record.
Manually input an email address in the company details modal in myCFP.
Include a column on email addresses with your employer import that you send to our support email address and let us know those email addresses should be used for the Booth Selection Login Email Address field.
