If you are one of New South Wales’ 150,000 NDIS participants, how do you find or connect to the right provider to make the wisest choices for your allocated funding? And if you are an NDIS provider, how can you reach out to make vital connections with the right clients? By heading to one of our national 2022 Disability Connection Expos is how!
The Sydney Disability Connection Expo 2022, on July 1st and 2nd, can change lives by bringing hundreds of NDIS business providers and thousands of participants together under one roof for two fantastic days of fun and information.
These NDIS exhibitors are ready to connect, engage and support participants and their carers and families with experienced and expert advice, and essential goods, services and products. Vital connections made at these expos have the potential to continue long after the event ends.
We will have a clear COVID policy at the ICC Sydney to keep you safe and as well as that commitment to you, we’ll make it super easy for participants and visitors to find you at the expo.
You will also be able to access our NDIS Q&A Concierge desk, facilitated by experts where visitors can go for answers to any of their burning NDIS questions and we will even be doing lots of live streaming over the two days so participants who aren’t there know about you. Centrestage will come alive when we showcase a wide range of all the exhibitors and a diverse range of services that they bring to the table. There will be constant fun, entertainment and activities throughout both days from live demonstrations and performances to obstacle courses and face painters!
So if you're looking to kickstart 2022 in the perfect way, by engaging quality conversations and meaningful connections, register HERE today.
Many NDIS Participants, Carers and Family members have questions about their funding, how it works and who to work with. We have Q&A Concierge Desks, 1:1 meeting rooms and an online booking system for you to search and find helpful Providers and Exhibitors
Connect with informed and experienced Providers that can give you certainty so that you’re informed, educated and you can make the best decisions for your situation.
We’ve designed the expo to include loads of entertainment (face painters, balloon artists, hair braiders and more), hourly performances and lots of chill out areas so you can enjoy your time, not just access information.
“The expo is, basically for us, because we just, we love to connect with people and this is a better place: this is just a grand place where you can meet with a lot of people, you can make a lot of connections and it's a very big shout out for our company when we get to show what exactly we are providing and what we are offering.”
“The expo is definitely very good exposure and a very good environment: Open space, meeting different participants. There are heaps of participants asking how to apply for NDIS and also asking what services we can provide. So we got to help the participants.”
“The expo is beautiful! Lots of people are coming who are desperate (for NDIS solutions). Now I can understand that Brisbane needs lots of services. We'll be here soon - our office will be here (in Brisbane) soon.”
“It feels like there's so much more, so many more providers here this year, and it's really good to see so many different providers providing all sorts of different supports. It's been amazing, great! Well done guys. Love it.”
“We really, really love this particular expo. There's something that you guys do that's really special. I think that whole developing of community just shines through and that's the most important thing for us: We're about community all the time, about making sure that our young people are connecting in community and supported and so, we can feel that in this kind of space and we love being a part of it, so, we are really grateful to be here.”
“It's been fun and we even go dancing and singing over there. It's been a great experience for us because this is the first year we are participating in this. We tried last year, but we just were too late. So we're looking forward to more years, actually!”
“It's been so busy we have been struggling to keep up, honestly. The great thing about this expo is that we have everything under one roof here. People can come and just explore all different aspects of services,specialised goods etc, so it’s just great for the people coming to the expo.So it's just great for the people coming to the expo. We will definitely be back as a major sponsor next year.”
“It's been such an amazing turnout. I've been so amazed even just by the mood of everybody here. Everyone is so welcoming and so excited about the different options here available. All the exhibitors have been so friendly. It's been just a wonderful experience so far.”
“Oh, it's amazing. It's so refreshing to see a consistent stream of people coming through… every one I've attended it's just getting bigger and better as we go. So well done. Great job. And we love being here. It's been very busy and you know we just love seeing familiar faces and helping people get the support though they need, or at least give them information to get the support they need.”
“It's been awesome, we've met so many great people, and a lot of participants have come up to say hello. We've actually found a lot of people coming over just to ask generalised questions. Sometimes they're just not quite sure on who to actually talk to, so they've come, taken a seat and we've just been having a bit of a chat about what supported independent living actually is, and what short term accommodation is as well, because some people are not quite sure what the difference is. It's been great really talking to the participants and their guardians as well around that.”
