Posted on Saturday November 12 2016

What time should I set up before the health fair starts?Vendor set up normally begins an hour before the health fair.We encourage all vendors to begin setting up at least 45 mins to an hour before the health fair to avoid setting up at the last minute, stressing the HR manager out and looking bad to the employees and other vendors.

It doesn't mean that it's going to be a bad health fair if a host doesn't provide food and drinks. With that said, always be prepared for if they are not going to be providing food, especially if you're someone that gets hungry and thirsty. If the host is providing food, hopefully they'll inform you via email through HFC's announcement feature - a feature which they can mass message all vendors. Feel free to...
