Today our Expo attracts roughly 1800 attendees from across the country. In addition to over 100 exhibitors, we also offer 50 seminars and training opportunities to attendees. Participants are widely varied from electrical contractors to industrial automation specialists and procurement professionals to principals. While we have always welcomed students at our event, this year we have developed some special activities just for young learners!
On April 4 we will host “Student Day” at the Expo. Every student who attends will receive a free notebook and pen (for taking notes on all they learn, of course!) and we will have special door prizes specifically for our student guests. More importantly, we have arranged a panel discussion at 9:30 am to review “Careers in the Electrical Industry.” The seven-person panel will include the following:
- Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC) representative
- An IEC member Contractor
- An IEC member Apprentice
- International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) representative
- An IBEW member Contractor
- An IBEW member Apprentice
- Matt Brnik, President of Schaedler Yesco
Both the IEC and the IBEW will share information about apprentice programs and experiences in the industry. Brnik will discuss paths other than installation, including distribution, sales, logistics, and more.
The 1-hour panel will conclude with audience questions.
The Expo is open from 8:00 am – 1:30 pm on April 4
- Exhibits: 8am 1:30pm
- Panel Discussion: 9:30a 10:30am
- Lunch: 11:30a 1:30pm
There is absolutely no cost to attendees or the schools for participation. We are simply eager to share information about the electrical industry with the next generation!
