How does the Virtual Fairs/Events cost breakdown compared to the in-person Montana Fairs?
Our in-person September Fairs are a 3 region, 3 week event with 18 Fairs overall. We host 6 fairs in each region for a flat price of $450/per region for members & $600/per region for nonmembers. Instead of hosting 3 separate events in September for each Region, we wanted to make this as easy and cost effective as possible by combining all 18 fairs and 3 Montana regions into 1 event.
The September Virtual Event will host all 3 regions for the price of 1 in-person region. The overall cost per virtual event is: $450/per virtual event for members / $600/ per virtual event for nonmembers. With 3 Montana Regions included - this new virtual model breaks down to $150 / per region for members & $200 / per region for nonmembers (Montana’s 3 Regions are: Eastern, Central, & Western Montana). This equates as up to a $1,200 savings from our regular fee for the entire state of live fair events! We hope that this is a cost savings for you and your institution in this challenging time and an easy way to connect with our entire state of high schools for less cost and also less time. We are working hard with all high schools to get strong attendance for these events, so your time is valuable and quality with our Montana students, counselors, parents, & beyond.

Are we paying for just 1 “live session” for students?
Our Montana events are not just 1 day or 1 live session. With our Montana Virtual Events our goal is to get you more for your money in the most efficient & effective way possible. Our 1 event could be compared to 3 or 4 separate virtual events. We are trying to maximize your reach in 1 event versus multiple separate events in the same month. Therefore, we are working hard to make sure this event offers many options to reach and connect with students. Our virtual events include a multi-day event, multi-session touch, multiple “live session” options & topic choices, online video library, online institution profile, one-on-one scheduling for student/counselor meetings, & much more! Therefore, if a student, counselor, parent is unable to attend one “live session” of your institution on one day, you, as the institution will have the option to offer multiple sessions on multiple days to avoid scheduling conflicts and reach as many students as possible in these events. Through these different touches, you will receive all the student contact information for future use and connection after the event.
If the cost is blocking us from attending, are there scholarships to help us be able to attend?
Yes! We are here to help! |ExhibitorScholarships– With COVID-19, we know this is a challenging time for everyone, and we are trying to keep services strong for students and education. Especially with being loyal partners in helping our Montana students at our past events, we want to make sure this is a fair option for you and your institution. Please do not hesitate to contact us if your institution would like to participate in these virtual events but is having a hard time meeting financial requirements. We want to work with you to help students together. Amy.Leary@MontanaColleges.com | 406.531.3531
