Join us for the 5th annual ICR Future Career and College Fair - a fair unlike any other in Iowa that bridges the gap between career exploration and college/training selection, helping students make informed decisions that align career interests with education and training selection.
The ICR Future Career and College Fair will feature colleges and universities, apprenticeship programs, military representatives, business and industry leaders, and student service organizations to help students make an fully informed decision about their future.
- ICR Future will be the largest fair in Eastern Iowa, with expectations of 2,000+ high school students and parents.
- With both career and college exploration, the age range of attendees will be wide, expanding the draw of the fair and increasing attendance.
- Breakout sessions keep attendees at the fair longer, providing exhibitors with more time as students and parents wait for select sessions to begin.
College & University Exhibitors
Second only to ICAN's Golden Circle Fair in Des Moines, be part of the largest selection of college and universities at one fair - see what colleagues from across the country are doing.
ICAN will promote the use of Strive Scan to attendees of the ICR Future Fair for collection of student information at your individual booths. Learn about StriveScan here.
Apprenticeship, Building Trades and 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
Increase awareness of your company’s career opportunities and expectations by exhibiting your expertise. Tables can include hands-on exhibits and displays, as well as handouts and giveaways for students. Eastern Iowa business exhibitors will be organized by Career Cluster, offering students a glimpse into careers for each cluster. Space is limited and will be given on a first come, first serve basis.
Student Service Exhibitors
ICAN invites organizations who specialize in college planning, career planning/training, student services, and/or financial aid planning to exhibit as part of our Student Services exhibit space.
