The ASI partnership with WorldSkills Australia (WSA) to sponsor the WSA national skills championship at the Melbourne Convention Centre has reaped rewards.
Thousands of attendees visited the 17-19 August show each day and more than 150 people visited ASI’s shared stand with Weld Australia and the Outsource Institute.
With a turn on a virtual welder as an inducement, the stand enjoyed peak traffic over the three days. The skills championship is designed to get young people excited about skills and trades.
Sulfi Soeleiman, ASI’s state manager for Victoria, was formally presented by WSA with a framed gold medal thanking ASI for its support of the championship.
ASI was formally recognised in the closing ceremony as a supporting partner in the manufacturing and engineering technology cluster and presented the gold medal to the winner for construction steelwork.
Gold medallists across all trades can compete at the 47th WorldSkills International Competition 2024 in Lyon, France.
