The heart of the employABILITY EXPO is an exciting array of companies and organizations who will be located around the perimeter of the main expo hall. It will be a lively mix of companies and organizations who will be displaying an abundance of services, information, programs and opportunities that can assist employers in their efforts to become an inclusive employer, and attendees to be more successful in their career exploration and/or job search efforts.

As an employer, your Exhibit will have many benefits, including:

    Making a strong statement about your commitment to having an inclusive workplace and being "disability friendly".
  • Connecting with candidates for current job openings, internships, summer hires, work experience or volunteer positions.
  • Informing attendees about future career opportunities with your company or in your industry.

As an agency, your Exhibit will allow visitors the opportunity to see what services you offer to help them become an inclusive employer.

Thank You to our 2018 Exhibitors
