"This event will help put Upstryve on the map as the premier venue for skilled trades education and training.  We expect that Upstryve's goal of being compared to other big name ed-tech companies will be greatly enhanced with these regular conferences, " stated Noah Davis, CEO, Upstryve "We believe the need for skilled trades professionals will increase due to the recent passing of the infrastructure bill and will continue to increase as additional government spending projects come to fruition."

The panelist line-up currently consists of several industry leading influencers in the skilled trades. The goal of this conference is to bring awareness to the multifaceted avenues of monetization that can be gained as a result of pursuing a career in the skilled trades.

The company's mission is not only to bring ease-of-access to materials, tutoring, and other educational tools associated with the skilled trades industry, but to act as an advocate for industry relevance as well.

"The stigma of vocational education being dated or somehow less monetarily beneficial than standard four year degrees is not only untrue, but, in essence, dangerous to the economy and to society," stated Cesar Valencia, Business Development Manager, Upstryve. "We believe that there will always be a demand for the expertise of skilled trade professionals and many companies are waking up to the fact that the shortage of future workers will impact their revenue."
