altDate: 19-22 February 2009
Venue: HK Convention and Exhibition Centre

The HKTDC Education & Careers Expo is a platform for the dissemination of information on education, training and career development. It caters to the growing demand for the need to obtain and upgrade qualifications and find a altsatisfying career path that offers the opportunity for advancement.

The 2008 edition of the event was attended by 505 educational institutions as well as public and private-sector employees. They included participants from Australia, Canada, Chinese mainland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Macau, New Zealand, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom, US and a first-time exhibitor from Saudi Arabia.

Adding value to people’s lives

Hong Kong has long put great value on the acquisition of educational qualifications. The drive to better oneself has been behind the city’s tremendous growth and economic success over the years, and remains as strong today as it did 50 years ago. The HKTDC Education & Careers Expo, which is now in its 19th year, has tapped into this demand and given educational institutions and employers unprecedented access to potential students and employees. altAmong the huge numbers of students and job seekers who came through the doors of the 2008 Expo were those looking for full-time tertiary education, those already in employment seeking evening and other part-time courses to upgrade their existing work skills, as well as graduates looking to step on to the career ladder or those already in employment looking to move in a new career direction.

Specialist sections

The Expo is divided into two sections – Education and Careers, with the Education section sub-divided into ‘Hong Kong’ and ‘outside Hong Kong’. Last year, 432 universities, polytechnics and other teaching institutions including language centres, student counselling organisations and vocational training bodies participated, while 73 commercial enterprises, government departments, semi-government organisations and professional associations took part in the Careers section looking for high-calibre employees.

altExpo highlights

The Expo adds value to the fair experience by highlighting certain economic sectors that are enjoying good growth and development in the current climate. Created in 2006, the Financial Planning Industry Zone has enjoyed a great deal of attention and will return again in 2009.

In addition, a number of themed days also turn the spotlight on areas of potential interest through various activities. In 2008 these were the education themes of US Study Day, Chinese Mainland Study Day and Continuing Education Day, while the careers theme day focused on the Financial Planning industry.
Running throughout the fair are a number of other events such as seminars, forums and career video sections on a variety of topics, all of which help to draw visitors to the Expo.
