People with disabilities, their families, caregivers, seniors, wounded vets and healthcare professionals attended Abilities Expo September 8-10, 2017 at the Boston Convention and Exposition Center in eager anticipation of the “Emergency Preparedness for People with Disabilities” workshop on September 8th, as well as the opportunity to discover the latest products, education and fun for all ages.

 

 

“It’s not just that we provide a forum that showcases essential technology to bridge the gap between ability and disability,” said David Korse, president and CEO of Abilities Expo. “The Expo is always new and exciting with a host of all-inclusive, adaptive activities.”

 

Admission to all Abilities Expo’s is free. Complimentary loaner scooters, wheelchair repair and sign language interpreters were also provided during the show hours.

 

Abilities Meet Up Zone

The Abilities Meet Up Zone was a dedicated area on the show floor where attendees could interact with both peers and experts. Many workshop and event presenters stopped by the Zone to engage one-on-one with attendees.

 

Relevant Workshops

A series of compelling workshops were offered free-of-charge to all attendees with particular emphasis on emergency preparedness.
