Naidex Is Just Around the Corner - Have You Registered?

The countdown for Naidex has well and truly begun! Europe’s largest disability and independent living event is set to transform Birmingham’s NEC on the 25th & 26th April for a monumental 44th edition.

Over the past two years, this mighty event has been completely turned on its head by its new organisers who have cultivated it to new, unrecognisable heights. With a floor plan double the size of last year, the introduction of brand new interactive features, and even more unmissable seminars, product launches and live demos, there are more opportunities than ever for delegates to get involved and test the products that are shaping the future of disability.

Make Your Home Accessible

The Home, Design & Build Summit is a brand new feature sure to be awash with activity as world-class speakers and exhibitors provide an exploration of accessibility in the built environment. From home adaptations and functional interior design, to legislation, funding, and designing for care, the Summit will push the boundaries of accessibility in your home.

How Employable Are You?

For the very first time, Naidex will be hosting an Employability Panel Debate within the event in order to discuss the problems, best practice, and opportunities associated with employing people with disabilities. The panel will be hosted by Disability Horizon’s CEO Martyn Sibley and will feature the CEOs of Disability Rights UK, the Business Disability Forum, Change and Microlink PC.

Try, Test and Get Involved!

Naidex provides the perfect platform to try the latest products, services and technologies, with thousands of live demos as well as the return of interactive features such as the Live Sports Arena, where you’ll be able to try your hand at a range of disability sports, and the Mobility Test Track which will provide visitors with a simulated course to test the latest mobility products that are currently available on the market - the perfect chance to try before you buy!

And there’s more...

This year will boast over 300 of the latest products and services that are currently shaping the disability, rehabilitation and independent living sectors, as well as engaging seminars giving an insight into the future of disability. Among this year’s 200 speakers you’ll find the Minister of State for Disabled People Work and Health, Accessibility Lead at the BBC, the Global Lead for Life Sciences and Healthcare at IBM, Paralympians, the Chair of the National Autistic Society and many more!

The 44th edition of Naidex promises to be the best disability and independent living event of the year combining exciting interactive features, incredible networking opportunities, captivating demonstrations and best of all, Naidex is completely free to attend!
