Ruby Radio Presents:
Opportunity Fair Elko
Thursday, May 16, 2019
at the Elko Conference Center
Our first Opportunity Fair was the largest career event in Northeastern Nevada! We’re doing it again, with over $150,000 in promotional power.
Elko’s unemployment rate is at an all-time low. It’s tough to find good people. Local employers need our ability to reach the edges of Elko and Lander Counties.
We know them. We talk to them every day. We know they come from every walk of life. And we’ll invite them ALL to Opportunity Fair!
Your potential applicants will hear about Opportunity Fair multiple ways:
Only Opportunity Fair participants can use the discounted follow-up ad plan to continue reaching employment prospects AFTER THE FAIR! 168 MORE ads per week for only $499, up to 4 weeks! Ask your Ruby Radio rep!
Do you have something to say to these job seekers?
Would you like to meet them in person?
We can help you do that, with a very cost-effective career event, plus an opportunity to be included in our intense promotional blitz.
Booth holders can also use the deeply discounted event rate for up to 4 weeks After the Fair to cement the connections you made with visitors to continue working with them. This is 36% off our usual rates and only available to Opportunity Fair participants.
Promote your business or service at Health & Fitness Fair. Meet over 4500+ people at Elko's premier event on Saturday, March 9th at the Elko Convention Center.
This is the 17th year of the popular Health & Fitness Fair, now in both the Elko Convention Center and the new Elko Conference Center. By March 9th, over 10,000 promotional announcements for the Health & Fitness Fair will have aired on all six Ruby Radio stations.
Eastlan Ratings has repeatedly proven that Ruby Radio's reached over 86% of the people who live in the Elko/Spring Creek area every week, making Ruby Radio the most cost-effective way to reach local people. All Health & Fitness Fair booth holders get a week of radio ads on the Ruby Radio 6-station group.

Elko, NV has a really great problem! We have too much work for the people who live here. We need more people to come to Elko for these good jobs. Employers need skilled teammates like truck drivers, electricians, welders, service technicians, diesel mechanics and law enforcement. There's lots of need in healthcare, culinary and hospitality, too!
The entire economy could grow, if we had more people to do the work. Women are encouraged to attend. Ask about training programs, benefits, healthcare, consistent hours, and bonus.
Ruby Radio is organizing Opportunity Fair 2019 on May 16 2-6pm, at Elko Conference Center to bring 50-65 employers together with employees. Our plan is to also promote this OUTSIDE of Elko as well, to attract new people to our community.
Come see Elko - a small, safe community where you can afford to have a real house, give your kids access to good schools in a healthy, clean, outdoorsy environment. Re-locators are welcome to explore Elko. #tradeuptonevada
