Exhibit at Golden Circle

Held annually, Golden Circle College and Career Fair is Iowa's largest college fair, traditionally welcoming more than 2,000 students and parents to the fair each Fall. In 2020, Golden Circle was held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2021 event will return to the traditional in-person format and adhere to current safety guidelines for social distancing and masks, and attendees will be allowed to enter in groups, maintaining a total capacity within safety protocols.

ICAN will promote this event to every high school in Iowa. School counselors, parents and students will receive weekly updates via email about event exhibitors and features. The event will also be promoted on social media, a college fair focused webinar for students and parents, and through our partnership with the Iowa School Counselor Association (ISCA.)

College & University Exhibitors

Be part of the largest selection of colleges and universities at one fair - see what colleagues from across the country are doing.

Apprenticeship & Building Trades/Military

ICAN recognized that many students seek a unique, hands-on career after high school which is why this fair will have exhibitor sections dedicated to apprenticeships and military career options. 

Business & Industry Exhibitors
