The Careers Expo is up an running all this weekend. Entry is free and there's no requirement to book or pre-register to attend. Simply come along to the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, Pavilion 4, on either Saturday or Sunday - we're open between 10:00am and 4:00pm.

As you are aware, since Saturday 23 April, the Perth and Peel region has been in a COVID-19 induced lock-down. On Monday (26 April) the Premier, Mark McGowan, announced an end to the most severe aspects of the lock-down but maintained a number of measures that impose restrictions on running the Careers Expo. On this basis, the following arrangements will apply:

  • We will not be open on with Thursday, 29 April or Friday 30 April and therefore we can no longer accept school groups on these days.

  • We will stage the expo between 10:00am and 4:00pm on both Saturday and Sunday and you are free to attend on either of those days. It will not be necessary to book or obtain tickets to attend.

  • Masks must be worn at the expo.

Taking off in late April 2021

After taking a one-year break to allow the State to work on dealing with the COVID pandemic, Careers Expo 2021 + VET Expo comes back, bigger and better than ever. We regretted being unable to stage last year's event but we think we'll more than make it up for it this year, particularly for those students who missed out and are keen to catch up.

This year's event, marking its 21st anniversay, is a few weeks earlier than normal. Over four days between 29 April and 2 May 2021, we'll once again bring together the broadest range of tertiary education, training and vocational organisations attracting students, educators, parents and guardians.

Alongside the usual array of all local and some interstate universities, private education institutions, professional organisations and employers, you’ll find an enlarged VET Expo area. This year it will feature representation by a wide range of vocational training and group training organisations.

Careers Expo 2021 + VET Expo will again be hosted at the spectacular Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre (PCEC). Entry is free.
