Exhibitors in the second Try’aSkill exhibit include hair and beauty, photography, media, fashion, make-up artistry, horticulture, bricklaying, construction, hospitality and building to give students an opportunity to experience firsthand VET based trade and skill activities.

PLUS the CareersXpo is hosting two WorldSkills VETiS Competitions in Plumbing and Electrotechnology!
