LAFAYETTE, Ind (WLFI)— The Builder Association of Greater Lafayette hosted a construction career and education expo, also known as the C2E expo. The expo was held at Ivy Tech-Lafayette and emphasized the importance of construction to the economy.

Professions such as accounting, real estate development, and architecture presentations were available, explaining how each field plays a role in the industry.

The expo was set up in three different areas of the college. A "plan it" section where people could speak with different businesses about the beginning stages of construction. A "build it" section where people could be hands-on with different pieces of equipment, and also a "finish it" section where presentations were held.

Over 30 exhibitors were in attendance to help educate students and the general public about all that the construction industry has to offer.

"The construction industry is a great industry to be in," said Committee member Topher Dick. "It doesn't necessarily entail that you have to go to college for it. You can find a really meaningful career in doing construction."

Nearly 500 students were registered for the afternoon session of the event, which started at 11 AM. There was also a session for the general public that began at 3:30 PM.

People coming during the 3:30 session had the opportunity to be interviewed by local businesses for job opportunities. 

The association hopes to bring the expo back next year. To learn more about construction career and education expo you can do so here.
