The free event, which takes place on the ICC East Peoria campus at the Agricultural and Industrial Technologies Building, features a student and alumni panel Q&A session, industry speakers, and lunch. Representatives from 20+ local businesses will be on hand to talk about career opportunities in the agriculture, diesel-powered equipment, and horticulture industries. Tours of the Agricultural and Industrial Technologies Building, the Horticulture Center, and live demonstrations by current students using the latest technology in agricultural, construction, and heavy truck equipment will be offered.
