Since the rise of virtual conferencing platforms such as Remo, there has been a constant debate between physical and virtual career fair cost.
Career fairs are a fantastic way of attracting potential job candidates to one place at one time. It also allows you to search for more candidates over a larger area. Whereas physical career fairs are more localized.
But how much does a virtual career fair cost? Don’t worry; we’re here to tell you that!
The cost of a virtual career fair can vary due to several reasons, such as
- What webinar platform you use
- Event management company
- Technical support for setup and during the event
- Post-event analytics and follow-ups
- Length of the event
- Promoting the event
Selecting the right conferencing platform is key to your virtual career fair cost. It is also critical for increasing the number of attendees you can have at a career fair. The price you would pay for a video conferencing platform depends on how many attendees you plan on having.Check out our pricing here.
Event management companies are great when it comes to planning and organizing your virtual career fair. Event management can be the costliest aspect of organizing a career fair. This depends on the size of the event. It can cost anything up to €3000. Here is a website to source a quote.
Technical support is necessary for any virtual event, but the pricing of a tech consultant can vary depending on the job. A quick Google search shows that tech support can cost anywhere between $10 to $150 an hour. So, the event’s length is also an essential way of telling the virtual career fair cost.
With the rise of social media, it’s never been easier to promote an event, particularly an online event. With LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter all having features for advertising. There are plenty of potential employee candidates waiting to see your ad. Pricing on these social media sites vary. They usually have a start off cost of about $5 per post. They can cost almost as much as you’d like depending on how many people you intend to reach.
In total, you would be looking at a fee under $10,000 for a virtual career fair!
There is no doubt that the virtual career fair cost is far more affordable than physical events. For physical career fairs a lot more comes into play when pricing, such as:
- Event Location
- Cleaning Fees
- Larger event management fees
All these costs for physical events can cost anywhere up to $30,000 in total (even more depending on the event’s size and length).
So why waste your precious time on a physical event when virtual events cost far less (up to $20,000 less to be exact), are better for the environment, and cause far less stress!
