Are you trying to finish that ongoing project, but don’t have the right tools or the know-how to get the job done?
On Nov. 16, the fourth annual Tool and Trades Expo will be held at the Roofing Centre at Conestoga’s Waterloo campus from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The expo is an interactive event open to all Conestoga students and faculty.
“This event has been very successful in the past as it allows students to network with professionals in the industry as well as it provides a hands-on and fun experience for those who attend,” said Ashleigh Carson, a post-grad event management student who is helping to organize the event. “The displays are mostly interactive. Vendors bring in tools and equipment to be viewed and tested by students. Some of the vendors do demonstrations throughout the show.”
Four of the 21 vendors this year are Milwaukee, DeWalt, Stanley/Proto and Ridgid Tools.
The event is free but donations of canned or dried food for the food drive is welcomed. Door prizes will be available as well as competition prizes throughout the day.
