Trade Show Worker

5 weeks


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.
