Additional Value of Attending
Naidex, in collaboration with Disability Horizons, is proud to introduce the Naidex Marketplace—an exciting addition to the event that offers attendees the opportunity to explore and purchase affordable daily aids, tools and resources. This dedicated area within Naidex showcases a range of invaluable products designed to make the lives of disabled individuals easier and empower them to live the life they choose.
What sets the Naidex Marketplace apart is its emphasis on affordability as products available for purchase start from as little as £5, which for many people with disabilities of lower income is of great value. This ensures that attendees can access and benefit from a wide range of practical and innovative solutions without spending a small fortune.
Naidex maintains an excellent information programme for professionals complete with top expert demonstrations and CPD certified seminars. The programme is divided across nine distinct theatres and there’s so much to discover. The most recent addition to the line-up is the Accessibility and Care Theatre, which looks at the newest assistance technologies and adaptations that are enhancing care and independent living through the lens of the people in the role of carers. Content is meant for healthcare professionals and occupational therapists as well as carers and users themselves.
