The IIC Show (Inclusion, Independence, Choice) is set to be the largest disability healthcare show to take place in the North of England.
The super-size exhibition will take place at Manchester Central from 14 to 15 February 2014 (formerly the G-MEX). Organisers hope that it will attract healthcare professionals, education professionals, trade specialists, the general public and the 1.8 million disabled people across the North West, along with anybody with an interest in mixed abilities/disabilities. The event which is organised by UKFE, is FREE to attend and even offers complimentary transportation for large groups of people.
