We had hoped to be inviting you to our conference in Courtenay BC this year, but as everything else this year, we have had to postpone the event at that location. We do plan to have it there the next time we permitted have an in-person conference! For this year, we would like to invite you to participate in our first ever online BCTEA Conference and Trade Show on October 23rd, 2020. Many thanks to those of you whom I have already spoken to in person and are planning to “attend” this year’s event. We are very excited about this new opportunity. We expect a far greater turnout of attendees for this event as there are no travel costs involved. This presents an even greater opportunity for you to present and advertise your company to teachers from around the province. In addition to the roughly 900 secondary Trades and Tech Ed teachers around the province, we expect many elementary ADST teachers to attend our conference. As some of you are aware applied skills such as woodworking, metalworking and robotics are now being taught by our K-7 teachers. Your information will be sent to all attendees, as well as our list of technology teachers in B.C through our List serve and Facebook Group.
We will be providing online workshops on a variety of topics related to ADST such as woodworking, metalworking, drafting, 3D Printing, Robotics, Makerspace and CNC manufacturing. With changes in our curriculum, both elementary and secondary teachers are in need of new resources and are looking for suppliers.

On behalf of the BCTEA, we thank you in advance for your continued support.

As in the past, we are accepting donations from your company to be used as door prizes. Given the online nature of this year’s event, online gift cards or coupons would likely be the most practical. Prizes will be drawn at various times throughout the event. This would provide additional advertising for your company as the prize is given out.
