ACE Expo just three weeks away

The Australian Construction and Equipment Expo Queensland held on October 4-6 at the RNA Showgrounds in Brisbane will deliver a platform aimed to inspire, educate and inform those in the industry.

According Maureen Ryan, Event Manager, Exhibitions and Trade Fairs, the Expo will offer a unique and highly relative seminar program during two of the three exhibition days.

“There will be a free ‘walk in, walk out’ morning seminar program on the Thursday and Friday morning presented by a range of industry leaders and professionals. Seminars are open to all visitors to attend and bookings are not required,” Ryan said.

The first morning of seminars is designed to keep those in the industry informed. From understanding the hazards of sourcing machinery overseas, to the idea of using coastal shipping as an option for interstate transport, are a number of relevant topics will be discussed.

The second day of the Expo will focus on apprenticeships, training and recruitment. School students from Year 9 and above, parents, teachers, TAFE students and all those interested in employment within these industries are strongly encouraged to attend.

Peter Ruhanen from the Queensland Training Ombudsman will be a key speaker on day two and will discuss issues relating to employment and training in the workplace, at the seminar titled “Value of Training in Today’s Workforce”. 

ACE QLD 2012 will also provide exhibitors and visitors with the opportunity to promote job opportunities and vacant positions.

“It is important that we support the industry. The current market is extremely tough, and we aim to do what we can to make sure we provide a helpful ‘community’, where those looking for employment and those looking to recruit can meet on equal ground,” Ryan said.
