The UK Careers Fair embarked on its ambitious 2024 schedule this past Friday, marking the beginning of a year filled with opportunities and connections. However, our kickoff event in Manchester encountered an unexpected challenge. Due to an overwhelming influx of candidates, we made the difficult decision to close the event 60 minutes earlier than scheduled. This decision, while not taken lightly, was necessary for the safety and effective management of the event.Addressing the Manchester EventThe Manchester event's early closure was a first for us. The sheer volume of attendees surpassed our expectations and the venue's capacity. This unanticipated scenario underscored the growing popularity and importance of career fairs in today's job market.In response, we have taken immediate steps:

  1. Securing Larger Venues: For future Manchester events in 2025, we are actively seeking larger venues to comfortably accommodate the increasing number of participants.
  2. Ticket Download Cap: To ensure a steady and manageable flow of attendees, we will introduce a cap on ticket downloads for all upcoming events.

Upcoming Manchester EventsWe remain committed to providing quality career connection opportunities. If you were a candidate who couldn't attend the recent event, don't worry. We are hosting five more Manchester events this year:

  • Manchester: 19/04/2024
  • Manchester: 02/08/2024

  • Manchester: 18/10/2024
