Things are starting to heat up at ExCel London in preparation for the biggest skills Competition in the world. From October 5-8, WorldSkills London 2011 will see approximately 950 Competitors from around the globe put their skills to the test. This youth event will bring together the best of the best in the skilled trades and technology, all vying for the title of world champion.
Competitors will be competing in 45 skill areas ranging from aircraft maintenance to web design. Set up for the event began last week and will take nine days to complete. This massive undertaking involves several crews and experts who have been working diligently to ensure the competition site and each skill area are ready for first day of competition. One crew member noted this was the “hardest job” he’s ever been involved with from a set up perspective.Throughout the four days of competition, over 150,000 people are expected to visit the Competition. Visitors will not only have the opportunity to view Competitors in action, but also try their hand at a variety of skills in the “Have a Go” activity area. Opening Ceremonies for the event will take place on Tuesday evening at The O2, with the Competition open to the general public on Wednesday.
