The importance of disability exhibitions for independence in 2020

At the turn of the year, we all set ourselves goals and ambitions to achieve in the year ahead. In 2020, make independence a reality thanks to the support, guidance and expert knowledge available at disability specific exhibition events taking place across the UK.

Filled with seminars, retailers, media organisations, networking opportunities, and much more: exhibitions are an excellent step to not only further understand disability, but meet new people and see first-hand the developments being made to make life more accessible. 

Advancements in technology, new products, upgrades in moving and handling techniques, there’s a lot to know in terms of disability whether you’re a person living with a disability, carer or professional.

2020 is set to ensure you’re continually ahead of the game. 


Each exhibition has its own unique selling point, but there is one leading event that is sure to meet all your needs: Naidex

Europe’s most established trade, professional and public event dedicate to the lifestyle, care, and rehabilitation of people with sensory, physical, hidden disability, and mental ill health, Naidex is a free two-day event for everyone.

Excitement is already building for this year’s event – taking place on 17 and 18 March at NEC, Birmingham – with the message of working to aspire for a better future of independent living. And with a number of celebrity and notable speakers already confirmed, it’s not to be missed.


This year will see the return of Naidex favourite events and new attractions. From a wellbeing zone, live sports arena to moving and handling lab, accessibility summit, innovation awards and Naidex junior: there is sure to be an area that meets your needs.

Speakers announced include Marion McNally, head of inclusion at Sainsbury’s, Ben Tansley, gym owner and speaker, disability writer Chloe Tear and Natasha Lipman, who is set to discuss disability blogging.

Perfect for individuals, families, carers, professionals and beyond, Naidex welcomes over 100 exhibitors each year with an extraordinary footfall.

Did we mention tickets are free? You can already register for your spot at the 46th Naidex event here.

Not to mention, Enable is always in attendance at Naidex and we love interacting, speaking with our readers and hearing what you have to say about the magazine and life with a disability.

It might only be January, but it’s time to fill up the diary with fun events. Naidex has to be up there!

So, Tuesday 17 and Wednesday 18 March 2020 at the NEC, Birmingham – we’ll see you there.
