After careful consideration, and in the interest of keeping our students and all guests safe, we have made the difficult decision to not host our annual CareerExpo event in 2022.
After talking with partners in industry and education, we realized the time is still not right to bring together thousands of people from across the state for this type of event, in particular. As you know, CareerExpo is designed as an indoor, hands-on, interactive event. In short, there are still too many variables and challenges related to COVID-19 to ensure the safety of our guests.
The good news is that we are moving forward in hosting the 2022 SkillsUSA State Championships on February 24-25. As organizers, we are excited about getting back to the Georgia World Congress Center and hosting a limited number of students and teachers. We also view this as a first step back to the full SkillsUSA State Championships and CareerExpo that we’ve all grown to love over the years. Our goal and our hope is that we will be back to our full event in 2023.
