Welcome and hello - we are now taking bookings for this year's Spelthorne Skills and Careers Fair to be held on Thursday 19 September at Kempton Park Racecourse. If you have exhibited with us before, thank you, you will know how successful this event has become, with stall holders confirming that many of you have recruited as a direct result of attending the fair.

As always we listen to your valued feedback and try where possible to incorporate any suggestions when planning the next fair. This year we will be holding the event from 10am - 5pm, which is also market day at Kempton to take advantage of the added footfall. We have booked the larger ground floor space once again, which provides more circulation space, and will be making some amendments to the layout and positioning and possibly be introducing zoned areas for the different sectors.

With the help and support of our valued partners: A2Dominion, Kenyngton Manor Surestart Children's Centre and Job Centre Plus we are hoping to increase the attendance from local students (age 14 upwards) and adult jobseekers, by providing a shuttle bus service from Staines and coaches to pick up and collect students from the feeder schools and colleges.

If you would you like to join us, please complete this online booking form to secure your stand. Just click to continue without an account and you will be taken to the form. We will be in touch once you have completed the form to confirm your booking.

In previous years we have been able to cover the costs of the hire of the venue together with all administration and catering, but as I hope you will understand with budgets shrinking and costs rising, this year we have had to introduce a small fee to exhibit to cover these.

The cost of exhibiting includes:

  • the opportunity to exhibit at an established Skills and Careers Fair at a prestigious and recognisable venue
  • a covered 6ft trestle table plus two chairs for each stand together with space to display marketing banners
  • a listing in the full colour fair guide
  • vouchers for exhibitors for tea and coffee, throughout the day and sandwiches and cakes
  • free car parking and ample parking for visitors to the fair
  • as the fair is being held on a market day this year, it is envisaged that this will help to attract an even higher footfall
  • take a look at our video from last year's event

The fee to exhibit is:

  • £25 for a small company with 10 employees or less
  • £50 for a company employing 11 or more employees

Would you like to sponsor the event?  

If your business would like a raised profile in our marketing and the opportunity to sponsor a specific zone at the event we would love to hear from you. Please drop me an email and we can discuss this in more detail.

Can you offer an interactive activity?

We would also like to speak to businesses who would like to run a workshop or provide an activity for our visitors. Please do get in touch if you have any great ideas.
