Exhibit and Display workers are efficient and resourceful, able to quickly transform buildings
such as convention centres, arenas, hotels and other large venues, into exciting and
eye-catching shows where companies can showcase and demonstrate their latest products and
services, or fans of arts and culture can gather to share in a common interest. They are
responsible for handling and transporting materials, setting up and dismantling complex
exhibits, rigging and hanging signage, and installing and removing carpets, pipes and drapes.
Individuals who are suited to this trade are organized and detail-oriented, as although the work
periods throughout the year may be short, there are often tight deadlines to meet.

training, with a major emphasis on health and safety. Participants in our training program will
