In today’s candidate marketplace, employers can no longer sit back and wait for top talent to come to them. Nowadays, it’s up to you to impress candidates.

Attending a networking event is a great first step in doing so, but standing out at the event with unique banners, swag and activities is even more effective. The truth is, if you’re not stepping up your employer brand for an event, you may get overlooked by top candidates who hurry along past your table.

Luckily, standing out with cool signage and banners isn’t difficult! It just requires a little bit of inspiration.

So, we put together some of the best signage and banners that employers in the FindSpark community have brought to our epic networking event, Hustle Summit. We chose these examples because they’re creative, effective and easy to carry to and from the event. Whether you have a budget of $20 for balloons or a table runner, or want to go all out with VR booths, you can get inspo from these awesome employer branding examples.

Use color theory to your advantage! If your logo has both dark and bright colors, using bright ones in your signage will draw attention to your table.

Want to go even lighter? Try a table banner!

Banners don’t have to be 6-feet tall. Opt for table banners if you’re looking for a more compact alternative.

Bring a set of several banners

One banner? How ‘bout three? Complimentary banners give your booth a cozy feel and set a strong theme.
