The Somerset Skills & Careers Fair is the most sizeable of its type in the South West.  We return for our fifth anniversary show on Wednesday 11th October 2017 at The J24 Venue (Sedgemoor Auction Centre just off the M5), an event that continues to draw in at least 3,000 visitors and 80 exhibitors annually.

  • Directory – a keepsake detailing all exhibitors at the show, free to everyone who attends and available to download here.
  • Choices for Life – away from the main hall, this is an exhibit organised by Somerset County Council to help vulnerable young people and their carers access the information, advice and guidance required to make the best choices in their education and future lives.  For more information please see our news page.
  • Please click here to view the press release, shared with the media on 26th September.
  • Guide to Exhibiting – tips to help exhibitors get the most out of your day, available when you place your exhibitor booking.
