Tradeshow & Vendor Opportunities

The Nest Agora – arguably the hub of campus for students as well as faculty and staff. Every year they hold numerous fairs targeting the UBC community of over 55,000 students. The open concept layout of both levels of the Agora create a steady flow through the building. The placement of various delicious food outlets on both levels keeps the traffic moving through the space.
