MID Stall Holder Expression of Interest

Migrant Information Day (MID) is an annual event that has been running for over twenty years with contributions and support from local non-for-profit, community and government organisations.  After several years of virtual events, we are excited to welcome  the community and service providers back again for a face to face event. This year's event will be held on Wednesday 26 October 2022 at Rockdale Town Hall from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

The aim of the event is to welcome new arrivals to the St George region, provide information about services available to them and celebrate the rich and vibrant diversity of the local area, via cultural performances and activities. Previous MID events have seen around 500 hundred people attended to find out about the wide variety of community and government support available locally, from over 40 stall-holders.

Expressions of Interest are invited from service providers to hold information stalls on the day.

To hold an information stall:

Standard registration costs are $90.00 (GST excluded) for shared stalls and $150.00  for whole stalls (GST excluded). Stall registration fees are tax deductible. Sponsors of the event will have their stall fees waived. 

Shared stalls will be allocated a table space measuring 1.06m wide, with one allocated chair. Although you may bring more than one staff along to the event, only one staff at a time will be allowed to be behind the stall for WHS reasons.

Whole stalls will be on tables measuring 2.13m wide, with two allocated chairs. You may bring more than two staff along to the event, but only two staff at a time will be allowed to be behind the stall for WHS reasons.

As a stall-holder, you will be able to display your organisation’s promotional material in your allocated space. We encourage stall-holders to present their information in an interactive or visual way, to engage attendees.
Please note that interpreters will not be provided on the day for the use of stall-holders due to logistical challenges. Stall-holders are encouraged to bring bilingual staff and materials. The main language groups at previous events have been: Mandarin, Cantonese, Arabic, Nepali, and Bangladeshi.

To express your interest in having an information stall or in giving a presentation, please complete the details below by  5:00 pm Monday 5 September 2022 for standard pricing.

Your application will be considered by the Organising Committee and you will be notified of the outcome by 5:00 pm Monday 19 September 2022.

Should there be more expressions of interest than there are places available, priority will be given to government organisations, non-for-profit organisations and community organisations.
