Stuck for ideas on how to keep your teenagers entertained? Take them to the Melbourne Showgrounds on Thursday and Friday 28-29 of August for the 2014 Australian Teenage Expo (ATE).
The event is designed to be both entertaining and educational and will see an expected 10,000 teens attend this year to celebrate all things young and cool.
The Expo is designed specifically for the young people of Australia; educating them on building positive self esteem and body image, safe partying habits and keeping safe online whilst encouraging them to chase their dreams through singing competitions and meet and greets with young Australian stars and performers.
The event will also feature special guest performances from X-Factor finalist Omar Dean, The Voice contestants Courtney Hale, Krishool, Thando and Soli Tesema, Young Talent Time’s Tyler Wilford, vocalist Frank Dixon and international sensation Vivica.
The expo will be open for two 'school days from 9 until 3pm and to the public in the evening. Image courtesy of ATE.
It's the fourth time the show has run and this year’s event is expected to be even bigger and better; with two ‘schools only’ days on Thursday and Friday from 9am until 3pm, and a huge evening of entertainment, competitions and exhibitors on Thursday from 3pm until 9pm when the event opens to the general public.
Tickets are $8.50 for kids and $10 for adults, and are available to buy at the gate or online in advance.
