Careers Expo 2024 is between 16 and 19 May 2024. Opening hours are 9:00am to 3:00pm on weekdays and 10:00am to 4:00pm on Saturday and 10:00am to 3:30pm on Sunday. The date sits at an important juncture of the secondary school calendar – early in Term 2. It’s well ahead of when students must select subjects for upper school, register for tertiary education courses and in advance of the university open days.
Careers Expo 2024 attracts over 10,000 visitors over the four days. Schools groups mostly attend on Thursday and Friday though they are also welcome on Saturday or Sunday. On the weekend, the visitor profile changes to small family groups. Students are often accompanied by parents, graduates, job seekers and those looking for personal development, training or employment opportunities.
Careers Expo 2024 is held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre (PCEC) situated in the Perth central business district. It’s the premier exhibition facility in WA serviced by a 1,500 bay, 24-hour car park sited beneath the venue. It’s located within walking distance of bus, train and ferry services, and provides access for people with disabilities.
Careers Expo 2024 is the only West Australian-owned careers event. Established in 2001, the event brings together tertiary and vocational education and training institutions, industry associations and employing organisations.
Careers Expo 2024 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 provides a unique and cost effective medium. Whether the objective is building a candidate database, influencing selections or securing enrolments, we give you the best prospects.

The best results come from being prepared. Make sure your stand looks good, your staff are on time and ready to do business, but most of all set goals and have processes to follow up leads after the show. See ‘Questions about Stand Fit-out & Electrical Services’ in the InfoPack.

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.)
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.

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.)
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.

Additional costs are only incurred if you require items that are not included in the standard shell scheme.

See ‘Questions about Insurance, Access & Security’ and ‘Questions about Stand Design & Activities’ and ‘Questions about Support Services” in the InfoPack.
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 Services’ in the InfoPack.
