Welcome to the World of 'blue-collar' TRADES

This year's TRADES Expo is excited to offer an even larger collection of 'trades' representation under one roof.

The TRADES Expo is aimed directly at future, new and existing tradespeople. All the Trades are in crisis! 70% of exisiting trades are retiring in the next 7 years. That means a TONNE of opportunities for new talent to enter the trades and exisitng talent to upgrade skills and make more money.

From carpentry to concrete, from highly specialized to classic trades they all need talent. Do you think you have what it takes to make it in the trades, then join us we are looking for you. There are many employers looking to train someone with a good attitude and some aptitude for the trade. Doesn't matter whether your new or an existing trades. Succession planning is in play and it's all about 'boots on the ground'.

Explore interactive exhibits, talk to the trades, handle the tools, and interact directly with employers looking for talent.

Explore, experience, learn, and connect!

Existing Trades - What's in it for you?
Come have some fun. Enter a 'Skilled' level trade challenge. Win bragging rights and cash prize money. Also enjoy this year's 'trade style' pig roast bbq and craft beer garden (General Admin included, must be 19+ years old) and catch up on industry trade gossip with your buddies.

Also remember existing trades are being sought in the succession planning with employers. If you have 5 years plus experience come and talk to employers as they look to recruit and move exisitng talent into more senior posiitons. If you're in the trades - IT'S TIME TO MOVE UP IN THE RANKS!

TradesWomen - What's in it for you?
Join this year's 'REAL' Tradeswomen and talk to the ladies that do the jobs. Ask them your questions. They are there for you! Not all girls are suited for what is deemed traditional 'women' jobs. If you feel the trades might be for you come and explore. Learn what the ladies do at a seminar or talk to them directly 'one on one' during meet and greet times. Join them on Saturday all day.

If you like the idea of working in the trades be part of the new generation of talent and come talk to us. Remeber 70% of exisitng trades are retiring. The opportunities have never been greater!
