Event description


Assistive Solutions Expo 2018

No two journeys are ever the same when it comes to living with a physical disability.

Our Assistive Solutions Expo 2018 will feature the latest in innovative equipment, aids and technology to help people of all different lifestyles, level of ability and stages of their life journey.

The free event will be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre in South Brisbane on Saturday, 12 May.

Attendees will be able to see the latest in assistive equipment and technology from dozens of exhibitors, hear from professional guest speakers and attend useful information sessions about a range of issues and topics and find new ways to increase their independence and quality of life.

The Expo is designed to be a place to connect, participate and learn for people with a physical disability, their families and carers, industry professionals and other people involved in the disability community.

The team from Spinal Life Australia will also be there to answer your questions and provide information about our services, available support and the NDIS.

We’ll also update this page with more information on guest speakers, exhibitions, information sessions and other Expo features over time so watch this space!
