Exhibitor Opportunities

Exhibitors will submit a survey below detailing their booth set up, table needs and interactive portion of their booth. This is a mandatory priority for this event as Gateway to Health must be an interactive learning opportunity for community members. Exhibitors will be selected at a first-come first-serve basis and through an equitable process to ensure a range of exhibits present at this event. Exhibition display is free, but spaces are limited.


We need volunteers for August 26! Volunteers will assist with setup, registration, facilitation, clean-up and more! Volunteer shifts will be up to 2 ½ hours in length. Volunteers will receive free t-shirts to wear at the event and can interact with the community for fun at the Gateway to Health Event!
