Welcome to Careers Expo 2021 + VET Expo
Re-launching in April 2021
Perth's longest-running careers, training and employment expo is back. This year marks our twenty-first anniversary. We opened back in 2000 at the Fremantle Passenger Terminal, moved to the Claremont Showgrounds in 2003, and adopted our current home at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre in 2005. Over the years, we've hosted visits by over 160,000 - and now we’ve survived a pandemic.
We continue the tradition of being WA's only careers event that brings together all of the local and some eastern states universities, together with a huge range of vocational and professional training organisations, industry associations and employers. This year's Careers Expo 2021 + VET Expo is lining up as our best yet - we already have more than 70 exhibitors committed, including all of those that were booked to attend last year's event. Careers Expo 2021 + VET Expo will be hosted at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre (PCEC) between Thursday 29 April and Sunday 2 May 2021. Entry is free.
Still flying high
Careers Expo has always provided an unmissable opportunity. For high school students, it encourages them to start choosing what they will do after school and what they need to do to achieve it. For those in Years 7 to 9, it gets them thinking about a tertiary or vocational pathway, and is a source of information to help them select their upper-school subjects. For those in Year 10 to 12, it is a forum in which to meet, and confer with experts from education and training institutions. For parents and carers, it offers a chance for them to guide, participate and encourage the career planning process.
Careers Expo is not only for high school students. Exhibitors are always on the look out for mature-age candidates including people who want to upskill, change careers or pick up thei education path where they left it.
If you’re a teacher or careers guidance officer and you're interested in bringing a group to the expo or providing information to students and parents, visit the Educators page.

We look forward to seeing you at the Careers Expo 2021 + VET Expo at the end of April.
