2004 brought a new dimension to the Coca-Cola Careers Expo, combining the collective support of Coca-Cola Amatil Ltd, Canterbury Careers Expo Trust, Canterbury Development Corporation and Careers Services. The Expo provided a forum for secondary students to explore a range of tertiary and career options, with the aim of assisting them in making successful transitions from school to meaningful work or further study.
Approximately 12,500 people, including students from as far as Timaru, Ashburton and the West Coast, visited the three-day Coca-Cola Careers Expo.
