We received a follow up email from the organizer of Trades Expo 2019 and were happy to hear that our exhibit was well received by educators, students, and parents.

This year was their best showing, with 2,636 youth coming through the building during the 2 day event.  Over 60 high schools were represented from Chilliwack to West Vancouver and included public, independent, alternative, and home learner attendees. Trades Expo received amazing feedback from teachers and school districts regarding the event, specifically the ‘hands on’ activities, writing “KUDOS to your team.  You guys did a fantastic job!”

FTI BC educators and reps were proud to be a part of Trades Expo 2019 and to enhance the experience of all attendees!

Trades Expo 2019

Last week we attended the 2-day Trades Expo held at the Cloverdale Fairgrounds, in Surrey BC. Several hundred high school students from around Surrey attended our display as we introduced them to the Finishing Trades.

Our booth was always busy with students wanting to try out our Virtual Reality Spray Painter, Virtual Reality Boom and Scissor Lift, and Glazing Crane.

The organizers of the Trades Expo expressed their thanks for our participation in this years event. We were proud to show students the Finishing Trades using our innovative and engaging training tools, as well as the expertise of our trainers and reps.
