While CSE Live is not designed to be a career fair or student based event, we have several fabulous ways a student can get involved and gain valuable experience at the events. If you are a student you want to attend the show, we offer four unique options.

A Guided Tour of the CSE Live Trade Show

Event planning students who are currently enrolled in full-time or part-time studies are eligible to pre-register for a guided tour of the show. You will have a chance to see exhibitor booths, the trade show floor, ask questions of your host and more. The guided student tour is free but pre-registration and student ID are required. Sorry, we do not offer class tours or allow “field trips, however, if you are a professor and want to discuss a CSE Experience project, please call and lets chat.

Volunteer in the Production of CSE Live

These opportunities allow new planners to take part in the event production and gain valuable insight into the special events industry. Many of these positions extend beyond the show days. If it makes a difference to the way you interpret this page or our policies, make note that ALL of our full-time CSE staff started as volunteers at the show. Space is limited, we suggest you apply early.
