The Trades Fit Expo

The Victorian State Government will be conducting their expo “The Trades Fit” again this year due to popular demand. The expo is designed to expose young women and non-binary students in years 9-12 to career prospects in traditionally male dominated trades.  Through interactive hands-on experiences, technology displays, information sessions, and panel discussions, students are offered the chance to discover and explore, in a comfortable space, the possibilities that are available in pursuing a career in these fields. 

Industries that attended last year’s expo included building and construction, electrical engineering, plumbing, automotive, marine, aviation, mining, agriculture and horticulture. Organisers are anticipating a similar line up for the 2023 edition. 

“The Trades Fit” expo takes place Wednesday 10th May and Thursday 11th May at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, 1 Convention Place, South Wharf. There is no charge to enter the expo, and schools and community organisations are encouraged to attend.
