Prize Presentation Opportunities

Throughout the Welcome Expo, prizes are given away through trivia contests. Generally, this generates a large crowd around the emcee and is an ideal opportunity to have a large number of students around your table. By donating giveaways and prizes (i.e. tickets/passes, gift cards, products), you can greatly increase the amount of traffic and exposure for your company. If you would like to give away any prizes during the event please message us at WelcomeExpo@ucf.edu.

This event is an excellent opportunity for your department or organization to advertise, promote your services and recruit from the ever-growing population of UCF students in one centralized location. There is no fee for Registered Student Organizations or UCF Departments to table. We do suggest that you bring promo items to boost traffic to your table.
