At a time when employers are finding it increasingly difficult to recruit the talent they need, the 65th Annual 3i SHOW is hosting the first-ever Agri-Business Hiring Event on Friday, March 22, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

KANSASWORKS and Kansas WorkforceONE will be on site in their Mobile Workforce Center to match contracted exhibitors’ job openings to potential qualified applicants.

Staff will be on hand to assist job seekers with applications, resume preparation and match them with job assistance services and training opportunities.

Participating exhibitors need to contact Tucky Allen, business services director/rapid response coordinator, with a completed job order request form at tucky@kansasworkforceone.org.

Exhibitors will have signage at their booth and their logo displayed at the mobile unit identifying them as part of the hiring event. Businesses wishing to participate, but have not yet contracted show space, should contract space today.

Complete exhibitor information, and all forms, are available on the exhibitor information page of the 3i SHOW website.

Exhibitor room blocks are still available as WKMA and the Dodge City Convention and Visitors Bureau work closely with local Dodge City hotels each year to create exhibitor room blocks with special exhibitor rates.

The following hotels have submitted agreement blocks for the 2019 3i SHOW: Best Western North Edge Inn; Best Western Plus; Hampton Inn & Suites; Holiday Inn Express & Suites; LaQuinta Inn & Suites; Motel 6; Rodeway Inn; Stay Suites of America; Super 8; TownePlace Suites by Marriott and Travelodge.
