Careers Expo 2022 + VET Expo is between 12 and 15 May 2022. Opening hours are 9:00am to 3:00pm on weekdays and 10:00am to 4:00pm on the weekend. The date sits at an important juncture of the secondary school calendar: early in Term 2 and well ahead of when students must select subjects for upper school or register for tertiary education courses and well in advance of the university open days.


Careers Expo 2022 + VET Expo attracts some 14,000 visitors over four days with the two weekdays hosting school groups of Years to 7 to 12 students. On the weekend, the visitor profile changes to become small family groups comprising students accompanied by parents. The focus turns to researching options through high-quality interactions with exhibitors.


Careers Expo 2022 + VET Expo is staged at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre (PCEC) situated on the edge of the Perth central business district. It is the State's premier exhibition facility, serviced by a 1,500 bay, 24-hour car park sited beneath the venue, located within walking-distance of bus, train and ferry services, and incorporating access for people with disabilities. The event is staged in Pavilion 4.


Careers Expo 2022 + VET Expo is the only West Australian-owned careers event. Established in 2000, the event brings together the full gamut of tertiary and vocational education and training institutions, industry associations and employing organisations.


Careers Expo 2022 + VET Expo provides exhibitors an unmissable opportunity to interact with students in Years 7 through 12, together with their teachers, parents or carers as they consider their tertiary or vocational options or select upper-school subjects. For any organisation wanting to access and engage with school-leavers or career-changers, Careers Expo 2022 + VET Expo provides a unique and cost-effective medium. Whether the objective is building a candidate database, influencing selections or securing enrolments, we give the best prospects.

How do I get the most out of my stand?

Do I need to pre-book parking?

It is highly recommended you pre-book parking, especially for weekdays. Under a special arrangement with the City of Perth, we can help you to purchase all-day, multiple-entry parking passes. See "Questions about Parking' in the InfoPack. (Closer to the event, we will provide a parking order form.)

Is storage available on site?

Generally no storage is available at the PCEC, but in some circumstances it may be possible to provide assistance. See 'Questions about Materials Handling' in the InfoPack.

How do I access the venue for set up and breakdown?

It is important you are familiar with the loading bay procedures at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre. See 'Questions about Move-in' in the InfoPack.

Do I need to have staff working at the stand for the entire period of the expo?

No. The way you conduct your stand is completely up to you. However the best results will be achieved by having someone present at your stand before, during and well after all opening hours. (Often, the best contacts are made at the end of the day.)

What is included in the standard shell scheme price?

A 'standard shell scheme package' includes the walls, carpet, power, lights and a fascia with your company name. If a 'space-only', 'back-wall and carpet' or 'partial shell scheme package' is ordered some or all of these elements are excluded.

Does my stand come with furniture?

No, but furniture may be hired from a number of suppliers. If you have any other questions, contact us at careers@exibit.com.au or on 0417 935 393.

Are there any additional costs once I have booked a stand?

Additonal costs are only incurred if you require items that are not included in the standard shell scheme. This may include additonal electrical services, furniture, AV equipment, catering or public liability insurance (if you do not have your own). See 'Questions about Insurance, Access & Security' and 'Questions about Stand Design & Activities' and 'Questions about Support Services" in the InfoPack.

Are there any restrictions when dressing my display?

Height restriction may apply but generally you are free to dress your stand as you wish. However, it is important to remain within the boundary of your stand and not spread into the aisles - this includes both your display equipment and the people working at your stand during the expo. See 'Questions about Stand Fit-out and Electrical Servicves' in the InfoPack.
