We can’t wait for 22-23 March this year when Naidex gets underway and celebrates its 50th year!
Naidex is the flagship event for the disability community, an opportunity to meet up with friends, make new connections, browse products, services and adaptations for independent living, share experiences, and work to remove barriers for an inclusive society, accessible to all.
Who attends Naidex?
Naidex is for everyone, and welcomes anyone who is living with a disability, as well as anyone caring for or supplying to the community. The event falls across two days so there is enough time for you to discover all that Naidex has to offer!
The 50th celebration of Naidex takes place on 22-23 March 2023 at NEC, Birmingham and is free to attend. It provides content and features covering the full lifestyle arc: mobility, employment and work, health and wellbeing, independent living, family, sports, rehab/care, relationships, entertainment, food and drink.
There’s something for everyone
Naidex features an exhibition of over 200 products and services and the Marketplace, in partnership with Disability Horizons, where you can browse daily aids.
There is also a live performance space called the Village Green, where musicians, dancers, comedians, sports people, chefs, and entertainers provide demonstrations – just part of the 50th birthday celebrations! There will also be a Naidex Comedy Hour with Aaron Simmonds and Lost Voice Guy on the Main Stage for free!
Try out the Mobility Test Track or take on the Adaptive Climbing Wall, too!
For trade professionals, explore the latest technology and innovations in the marketplace, find new suppliers, and talk directly to key manufacturers, retailers and distributors serving the sector.
For healthcare professionals, attend live demonstrations showcasing mobility and assistive tech, care, education, sports and lifestyle, and accessible living solutions to help you provide a person-centred approach in sourcing products and services for your clients.
So many fantastic speakers to choose from!
Catch Ellie Simmonds OBE, Tommy Jessop, Lauren Steadman MBE, or Steve Thompson MBE on the Main Stage. Immerse yourself in live performances at the Village Green, including an Inclusive Dance Workshop with Kate Stanforth Dance Academy, special guests from Arsenal Football Club or Cookfulness.
For those working within healthcare, enhance your professional development with the CPD accredited seminar agenda. We have the Accessibility and Care theatre with sessions from Georgia Vine: Critically Analysing Occupational Therapy Practice Through a Disabled Persons Eye, Sally Chalk: Artificial Intelligence is transforming the way sign language users can access written and spoken languages or Steve Ford: Stepping up for Occupational Therapy – what progress are we making?
