What is TeenEx?

 

We're glad you asked!

As you've probably guessed, yes it's an exhibition for Teenagers and Young adults. That's "LIT" right? At last, an exhibition just for you! You've heard your parents say that "the world is at your feet". Well they are not far wrong. Only you have the power to change your world! TeenEx is about lots of FUN along with a little bit of guideance, if you can handle it. We don't want to bore you, we're sure you have enough of that somewhere along the line every day. TeenEx is not a Career Expo although it does cover some career choices, because life is based on what you do to create a lifestyle, so we've selected a few out of the box careers that are fun and creative from the usual. Who knows you could change your mind about what you wanted to do, and give your folks a few more grey hairs. Come see!

 

 

What makes this Expo unique?

 

We say "Kids" ... "just wanna have fun!" ... Right?

So, we've incorporated a lot of FUN into TeenEx and we have chosen our exhibitor stalls with your Lifestyle in mind. Maybe after much nagging and your parents saying "we'll think about it", you're allowed to go on Vac at the end of the year and need to find out more? Well your folks can come along too and you can put their minds at rest with first hand info. Or you're looking for ideas for your Matric Farewell dress or afterparty? Well, we have a few ideas for you, so tell your friends and come have a look. Looking for something to do on weekends? Like join a sports club, or hiking group? Come and find out more.

To create the very LOUD and very QUIET fun for you we are having a few special attractions. For the LOUD, if you know of any friends with bands share this event. We are having a Battle of the Teen Bands competition. Young people (up to 21 years old) who have "garage type" bands will have the opportunity to send in their very "best" song to be voted in or out via an online pole. The best 5 bands will be chosen to play 2 songs at the Expo. More info to come. Follow us on Twitter and Instagram for updates.

Then we are having a Teen Fashion Show, and have decided to incorporate Cosplay as one fo the themes. Something different to the norm. Any teen or student wanting to enter and participate is welcome. The TFS (Teen Fashion Show) will be run by a selected Fashion school organising 20 selected teams creating their own theme. More info to come. Follow us on Twitter for updates.
