Free to Attend

Over 15,000 NDIS service providers Australia wide have been invited to exhibit in the 2022 Expo and numbers will be strictly limited.

Why is this a must-attend expo for service providers?

Increased ability
to stand out

With 15,000 Providers across the country, Participants are seeking to meet with people and build relationships with quality organisations.

Connect with more Participants

From our Q&A Concierge Desk, to our 1:1 Meeting rooms, to our online booking system, our expos have been optimised to increase connection and conversations between Providers and Participants.

Increased exposure

Attending as an exhibitor allows you to leverage our PR and Social Media campaigns, which reach over 5 million people every month.

Quality time with Participants

Our expos are designed to encourage people to stay longer. From balloon artists, face painters, jumping castles and hair braiders, combined with a spacious floor plan layout, the main feedback we receive from exhibitors is that people are less rushed and they spend more quality time with them.

NDIS expert staff available on both days

You have the ability to get involved in the concierge team to meet more Participants. This team will be available on the day
(free for all those attending) to:

  • Support people new to NDIS, looking at applying to NDIS or approved.
  • Review and support those seeking to connect with the right services and options.
  • Answer any questions, especially if people aren’t sure what service options are out there, are unsure who to talk to, how to use their plan or would just like support on the day to find options and connect with some of those Service Providers attending.
  • Look through visitor NDIS plans if they aren’t sure of how they work and what they can use their funding on, what the different sections mean and help people find the options they have been looking for.

There are no silly questions. The team will be there to support you.

What People are Saying


    "We have really grown our NDIS community since exhibiting at the service provider expo. We were able to meet likeminded businesses who we have worked with to ensure we are providing the best possible care for our participants."


    "As a result of being at the expo we have seen a significant increase in clients engaging with us for our complimentary Discovery Sessions in our clinics across WA and many clients have now onboarded to our services."

    Event Participants
    Exhibitors and displays from

    We have invited and will be showcasing a diverse range of exhibitors:

    • Over 15,000 Service Providers, Professionals, Capacity Building Experts, Therapy, Early Intervention and Disability Focused Aged and Child Care options Australia-wide have been invited to exhibit.
    • Up to 250 exhibitor spaces will be available and there will be a diverse range for you to find that perfect fit option for you, your loved ones, or those you support or work with.
    • There will also be a focus on resource options, equipment and therapeutic services.
    • The more diverse the range of Service Providers, the more valuable and attractive the expo is for Participants and visitors.

    Expo visibility

    PR / Social Media / Local Support Groups

    We have engaged a National PR firm to ensure our expos get full media coverage throughout Australia to increase opportunities to bring our community the best Service Providers we can and ensure maximum attendance over the full two days.

    Strategies are in place to engage local community and networking groups to raise awareness of the expos in all regions.
