This dynamic career expo will take place on Wednesday, September 20, 2023, at the Richard Borchard Fairgrounds in Robstown, Texas in Exhibit Hall A and Berry Pavilion.
An estimated 2,500 students will join us at the Richard Borchard Fairgrounds where they will network and explore the 130 booths comprised of local employers, training providers, community partners, and military personnel. This is an opportunity for students to explore industries & in-demand occupations such as Business, Healthcare, Professional Skills & Trades, and Public Service.
