Visitors were met by over 200 exhibitors including: equipment suppliers, transport, holidays, leisure, employment, support groups and services.

Disability Awareness Day is a pan disability event which promotes 'a can do culture' focusing on what disabled people can do throughout life and work. The show had three main aims:

  • To highlight what statutory, private or voluntary services are available, to enable disabled people to stay independent.
  • To promote equipment and aids that could maintain or improve independence, not just what is offered by statutory service providers
  • Showcase what disabled people can do, in the field of Sport, Arts and Entertainment.
