[Jobs] Navigating Job Fairs

Hi all,
The community college that I am attending is having a job fair next week. I have never really attended a job fair, so I was wondering if anyone here has any tips on navigating a job fair? There will be 60 or 70 different employers there, so it will probably be a large job fair. The good thing is that the college provided a spread sheet on the employers and job positions, but it does not discuss how things will be laid out. Will it look bad to potential employers if you have help navigating around the job fair, such as someone who walks with you and just reads out the signs and tells you what is where, or is it better to do that independently, even though you will not know which booth or table is which? I am usually a very independent person that does just about everything on my own, but this is something new for me, and I don't want to look bad or awkward to employers while moving around the job fair. Also, I do not know if it would turn employers away if I go to each table and ask which company it is. Also, if you had to fill out any applications there on the spot, how did you manage that? Have any of you had any success with job fairs, and what did you find that worked for you? 
Any tips or experiences will be appreciated. 
Thank you,
