The Expo was deliveered by IRT Foundation in partnership with the NSW Government. The concept is a one-stop-shop for people planning their future to get the right advice about working and retirement. Participants had an opportunity to meet with potential employers, trainers, employment agencies, financial advisers and community organisations to obtain advice on employment and retirement options. Older workers left the Expo with a personal action plan for the next stage of their working life.
