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 31,000 people have walked through the doors. In 2023, we are expecting over 120 exhibitors and 4,000 students, making it the largest careers event in Victoria, outside of the CBD.

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.

Major local manufacturers are on hand to tell students that the manufacturing industry is alive and well in our region and is providing an array of employment opportunities. Students have a chance to speak with a comprehensive range of training providers to help them decide the most suitable post school option for them. Competitions, giveaways and a variety of food trucks add an extra level of enjoyment.

In 2023 the event will be held in early May. To register your interest to exhibit or attend please contact the Events Team at
