INTERVIEW: The power of connecting during the upcoming Kidz to Adultz Venue to Virtual event 2021

Ahead of the second Kidz to Adultz Venue to Virtual event, sponsored by Cosmopolitan Care, we speak to the team to find out what you can expect from the online experience.

From week commencing Monday 1 March, Kidz to Adultz Venue to Virtual is set to return with a host of exhibitors, services and discussions pertinent to disabled children, young people, their parents, carers and professionals.

By registering for your free ticket, you will get unlimited access from the floor to your screen.


“If you have or support a child with a disability or additional need (parent, carer or professional) then this free event is dedicated to you,” enthuses Carmel Hourigan, senior manager for the Kidz to Adultz Team, Disabled Living.

The platform developed following on from a range of Facebook Live presentations from a number of companies and organisations who would normally exhibit at our Kidz to Adultz event, during the first lockdown. The uptake of the streams highlighted the need for people to be connected to disability specific businesses, products and services. 

Registration is now open for the next Kidz to Adultz Venue to Virtual here!

Ensuring parents, carers, professionals and more have access to the relevant information is what Kidz to Adultz do best. 

Carmel adds: “For the Kidz to Adultz Team, I think the most rewarding part for us is the knowledge that we have been key in supporting attendees in getting answers to those all-important questions, enabling access to the vital information they require for their child or a child or young adult they support which can make their lives so much easier. 

“This comes through clearly from all the wonderful feedback and really is priceless.” 

Boasting an array of companies, voluntary and support organisations, plus a large number of new exhibitors – and some familiar faces – there is a lot to look forward to this March.


From custom made safe rooms, high sided beds and sleep areas; assistive technology; PA carer and payroll services; to learning opportunities for young people with learning difficulties; training opportunities; not to mention free, impartial equipment advice: Kidz to Adultz Venue to Virtual is the only event where you can find all of the above and more all in one place.

And, if the success of last year’s Venue to Virtual is anything to go by, you won’t want to miss the March instalment.

“The feedback from attendees of the first Venue to Virtual event in November 2020 has been overwhelming from both visitors and exhibitors,” says Carmel. 

Commending the informative sessions to the direct access to experts and the ability to contact exhibitors directly, the November event saw participants from across the world.

A SEND assistant from the Philippines commented: “The Virtual event has been such a blessing to me!” With a parent from The Netherlands adding that the event was a great idea and very enjoyable.

In fact, there were over 2,800 registrations for the November event. Are you excited for the return of Venue to Virtual?   

Registration is FREE for attendees. For more information and to register visit the Kidz to Adultz website here.
