Two representatives were invited to attend our exhibitor planning day on Monday 25 November 2019. Presentations from the day can we found below, along with a PDF version of the Welcome pack.
Audience and Communication training
The training days will take place on Tuesday 10 and Monday 16 March. Two exhibit representatives from each group will be invited to attend the training. We strongly encourage attendees to share the training materials and run a session with the rest of your exhibition volunteers once they get back to your institution. The success of your exhibit is reliant on the volunteers at your exhibit being able to communicate your key messages. Please train your teams to be able to do this and use the tips from the training days to do so.
The slides from the training will be uploaded below post event.
Child protection policy
Approximately 3,000 school students will be visiting the exhibition from Monday to Friday in school groups, with more expected in family groups during the week and weekend. While the Royal Society are responsible for child protection and safeguarding overall, exhibitors have a duty of care and are responsible for ensuring a suitable level of safeguarding for these young people while they are on their stand.
Further guidance will be provided to exhibitors in due course.
A large part of our audience is made up of school students. If you would like to become more involved in schools and inspiring young people in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths subjects, please register your interest via our quick form, or contact the Schools Engagement team directly for more information.
