South East Careers & Try A Trade Expo

The South East Careers and Try a Trade Expo is SELLEN’s largest annual event. Starting in 2009 it was held at the Berwick Show Ground with just 250 students in attendance. In the time since these small beginnings more than 40,000 people have walked through the doors. In 2023, we had more than 130 exhibitor and 7,000 visitors, including 6,500 students, making it the largest careers event in Victoria, outside of the CBD. These students came from 60 schools within 8 local government areas.

This major event brings together universities, TAFEs, RTOs, community service organisations and industry to speak with local secondary school students about post school education and employment opportunities. Students can engage in hands-on activities, with an extensive range of exhibitors in attendance, students can learn about occupations they may never have considered.

Competitions, giveaways and a variety of food trucks add an extra level of enjoyment. To register your interest to exhibit or attend please contact the SELLEN Events Team at

The expo will be held on Tuesday 14 May 2024.
