Exhibiting Information

The CES invites interested organizations to be an exhibitor at this year’s provincial conference.  The CES Career Education Society annual conference is recognized as one of the best career education professional development conferences in British Columbia. 

The conference theme - "Routes to SUCCESS"- acknowledges there is always more than one way to move forward towards one’s preferred future, and that success can take on many forms. Helping youth develop resiliency to react to life's curves is a key role of the career development educator and community partner. We hope through colleagues, subject matter and community experts sharing their own knowledge and expertise, our conference participants will leave the conference armed with new knowledge and a sense of excitement about their personal role in helping youth succeed.

Our 2021 at the Hyatt Regency offers exhibitors all-day featured exposure.  All workshops and the main ballroom are located on one floor and all exhibitors will be in the floor’s main foyer and hallway, where all attendee traffic will flow.  We will also have a virtual booth option as we are going are working on a hybrid option to support participation for those districts that cannot send a full complement of educators.

Deadline to Apply

Audience

The primary conference audience consists of K-12 educators (teachers, administrators, career counsellors).  It is hoped your exhibit will support educators with resources and information that will enhance their career education delivery in any of the areas of focus listed below.

Conference workshop themes include:

Finding hope, building blocks for positive life transitions:  Students engage in learning opportunities to help them build and maintain a positive self-image so they can tackle life’s many transitions.

Learning about the world of work and career awareness: Building awareness of occupations, communities, and career pathways and beginning to identify areas of interest.

Learning about careers through exploration: Students engage in learning opportunities that allow them to explore career options and opportunities and help them to inform decision-making. Through work experience and volunteer activities they can build their connections with the community that will help them see how they fit into the work.

Applying learning through career engagement: Students engage in work and learning opportunities that build their knowledge, skills, and abilities.   Students apply learning through practical experience and interaction with professionals from industry and the community to extend and deepen classroom work and support the development of college- and career-readiness knowledge and skills (higher-order thinking, academic skills, technical skills, and applied workplace skills).
