More about the virtual Expo: The 2022 Expo featured a virtual Exhibit Hall where students and educators had the opportunity to “visit” booths to learn about different organizations. Exhibitors shared materials and videos about their workplace and hosed chats to answer questions. In the virtual Auditorium, students heard Career Talks and engaged with professionals.

Participating schools: See the list of 2022 registered schools here.

Timing: The official Expo was held live over two school days (8:30 AM to 3:30 PM) with hosted exhibitor booths, career speakers, and mock interview opportunities. Students and educators enjoyed full access to the Expo, including recorded talks and booth materials, for 30 days afterward. Many exhibitors  hosted live booth talks and answered questions via booth chat throughout the day. Most common "active exhibitor hours" were 9-11 AM and 1-2 PM.
