Our Virtual Society and Club Fair - Societies, sign up!

 

Are you part of a society that wants a table at our virtual society fair? If you are, fill in this form.  You have until the 31st of August to fill this form in to guarantee a free table.


Societies and Sports Fair as we traditionally know it has been unable to take this year due to social distancing measures. Trying to fit all our clubs and societies members, plus fair visitors, into a hall whilst maintaining safe distances proved to be unachievable and unsafe.

Whilst the lack of a physical fair may come as a disappointment or many to you, we are working with an external company to deliver a virtual fair. We know you will have a lot of questions about a virtual fair, so before emailing us, please read the Q&A below carefully:

How does a virtual fair work?
A virtual fair will work much in the same way a real fair does, although everything will be virtual. Students will log into the SU website and then be able to click on virtual 'rooms' which will take you to virtual 'tables' dedicated to a specific club or society. When someone clicks on your table it will take them to your society/club page and will link to any social media platforms that you have. This way potential new members will be able to get in contact with your group and ask any questions they may have before purchasing a membership.

When is the virtual fair taking place?
The virtual fair will be taking place on the SU website for 5 days, starting on 21st September and ending on the 25th September, and will run for 24 hours a day. This does not mean that you need to be on live chat waiting for questions 24 hours a day. We will introduce and advertise a time slot where we think it will be the most beneficial for you to be on live chat to talk to new members. This time slot will not be mandatory, just our recommendation.

How do societies get a virtual table?

Are you part of a society that wants a table at our virtual society fair? If you are, fill in this form.  You have until the 31st of August to fill this form in to guarantee a free table.  If you miss this deadline, a virtual table at the virtual fair will cost you £100.

How do sports clubs get a virtual table?
If you are a club, you will not need to do anything for now. As there are far fewer clubs than societies, we have been able to book tables for the clubs. If you are a club and have questions about this, please contact Bayley, b.wooldridge@uea.ac.uk.
