As a trade show worker, you’ll set up and dismantle exhibits and modular systems.
Trade show workers exhibit greatness.
Trade shows are big, bold exhibits that showcase companies and their products. As a trade show worker, you’ll travel to exciting cities to transform convention centers, hotel spaces and other facilities into full shows in a relatively short span of time.
During your apprenticeship, you’ll learn how to handle freight, rig equipment, and set up and dismantle complex exhibits and modular systems. Your training will also make you an expert in rigging and hanging signs, and installing and removing carpet, pipes and drapes.
Your training includes how to use all the tools of the trade. And one of these is your physical strength, which you’ll need to lift and move heavy objects.

The next game-changer is to be able to reach the youth in our schools. They are the next generation of IUPAT members, and we need to ensure our organization is a career option they are familiar with as they graduate high school. They need to know we offer an accredited apprenticeship program and an associate’s degree while receiving a debt-free education and work in an industry that will provide for their family. Knowing this will make the IUPAT the preferred choice for their future.Brian Courtien
