How To Participate

The 2021 Expo features a virtual Exhibit Hall where students and educators can “visit” your booth to learn about your work. Exhibitors can share materials and videos about their workplace, and they can host chats to answer questions. (Never been to a virtual event? Click here for some sample images and visit our Expo homepage for more information.) Registration for the 2021 Expo is closed. Stay tuned for information about becoming an exhibitor for our 2022 Expo.  

In a typical year, our 195+ exhibitors represent Oregon's leading employers, colleges and training centers. Many employers also support our year-round work by becoming official Expo sponsors. See the bottom of the sidebar for our lists of 2021 sponsors and exhibitors.

Why Participate?

Grow your own workforce

We shop locally and eat locally. Why not hire locally? Invest today in young people who will become the workforce for tomorrow. Retirements are looming, recruitment is fierce, and many Oregon businesses need to strengthen and diversify their local pipeline of talent. The Expo lets you invest in your future workforce.

Support Oregon education

Oregon's high schools are full of promising and capable young people, but our state has one of the nation’s lowest graduation rates and a below-average per-capita income. Help inspire our students to graduate and find well-paying jobs by showing them pathways to great careers.

Showcase your company

The Expo attracts more than 6,500 students from about 70+ high schools in Oregon and Southwest Washington. It draws 190+ exhibitors, including the region’s most dynamic employers. Political leaders, business owners, educators and the media come, too. Don’t be left out!
