Will you be attending the flagship event of the disability community?
Naidex is back once again to help show that anything is possible. Reunite with friends, old and new, this summer on 6-7 July at the NEC, Birmingham for Europe’s leading event supporting independent living.
What is Naidex?
Naidex is Europe’s most established event dedicated to supporting people with disabilities. An interactive two days showcasing a wide range of solutions and technology to improve mobility, accessibility, and independence. Naidex is for everyone, and welcomes anyone who is living with a disability, as well as anyone caring for or supplying to this amazing community.
Exciting and interactive features
Expect over 9,000 visitors experiencing the latest independent living solutions and daily aids, meeting with hundreds of innovative exhibitors and awe-inspiring speakers, and most of all having fun! Features this year include the Mobility Test Track, an area of the show where wheelchair and mobility aid users can ‘test’ new products on a specially designed track of different landscapes, and the Naidex Marketplace, a new area of the show which offers affordable daily aids that you can purchase and take home from the show. All this, along with interactive trails such as Naidex Junior, make this the go-to event of the year.
Another interactive opportunity at Naidex this summer is Training 2 Care’s Autism Reality Experience, an innovative, immersive and hands-on training which has been developed to give non-autistic people an experience of the sensory processing difficulties faced by people on the autism spectrum.
Previous speakers at Naidex have included the likes of Warwick Davis and Alex Brooker, and this year we are excited to be announcing main stage speakers James Cracknell OBE and Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson into the line-up.
This year we have five seminar theatres showcasing the latest case-studies, solutions, products, and technology revolutionising the independent living sector. These include The Main Stage, Accessibility Summit, Education and Employment theatre, Lifestyle Theatre, Mobility Theatre. These theatres will bring inspiring and motivational experiences, live demos of the latest independent living solutions, and insightful opinions on pressing topics. There is also the opportunity to enhance your professional development with our CPD accredited seminar agenda, making the event not only enjoyable, but informative and educational too.
Pimp my mobility
This year, in partnership with The Grumpy Gits, Naidex are launching the #PimpMyMobility Campaign. The aim is to decorate and change the appearance of your mobility aids, think loud and proud; fairy wings, stickers, or if you’re a certain Grumpy Gits member, transforming your wheelchair into a Tardis! Follow the hashtag #PimpMyMobility on social media for inspiration! Visit naidex.co.uk/pimp-my-mobility for more information on how to get involved.
A fantastic event for the whole community
Naidex works with a number of partners including charities, media partners, accessibility providers, podcasters, and industry associations to ensure that their audience is well-represented, and their team can’t wait to welcome you to the NEC Birmingham once again for what is set to be a fantastic event for the community, helping people understand that anything is possible.
