The ReTrain Now Fair is a new fair in partnership with the Ministry of Labour for organizations and institutions who provide education and training, or for companies who provide pathways for people to participate in new and emerging sectors of the economy, such as the Green Jobs sector. The Fair is a one-day event on Thursday, April 27, 2017, at the Ramada Edmonton Hotel and Conference Centre, Kingsway location. It is also supported by the Career Development Association of Alberta and the Private Career Development Contractors Association of Alberta.
The primary target audience for the ReTrain Now Fair are Albertans who are presently unemployed or marginally employed and searching for retraining and additional education opportunities. Secondary target audiences will be groups underrepresented in the labour market such as Indigenous Albertans living off-reserve, Alberta’s immigrant population and Alberta youth age 18-24.
This event is free to attendees and will be promoted through a social media campaign using Facebook, Twitter as well and other appropriate social media platforms. Radio campaigns will also be employed and print ads will be placed in community print publications such as Metro And MyJobFinder. We are aiming for 2000 to 2500 attendees.
As this is the inaugural year, exhibitor fees are being set at the low introductory price of $750.00. Exhibitors will receive a 10’ by 10’ carpeted booth with electricity, one 8’ foot skirted table and two chairs. Two coffee breaks and lunch will also be provided.
The ReTrain Now Fair will be open to the public from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. If you are an organization, association or institution offering education and training opportunities, or an employer or organization providing pathways in the Green Jobs sector, the ReTrain Now Fair will be of value to you.
Exhibitor space is limited. If you have any questions providing sponsorship or other details, new ReTrain Now Fair, please contact Patricia at Currie Communications Ltd at Patricia@curriecom.com or (780) 413-9570.
