The Geelong Disability Expo will be upon you before you know it. Held on Friday 23 and Saturday 24 2024 from 9am to 3pm at Geelong Arena, 110A Victoria Street, North Geelong. It's a fine way to visit all disability-related vendors; all under one roof. You'll find a wide range of products and services to help those with disabilities live their best life; including government and advocacy organisations, aids and equipment providers, financial and legal services, education, training and employment providers, social and leisure options, transport and vehicles, health and medical products and services, allied health professionals and support services, including in-home care providers.

Though this is a free event, you need to register your attendance here if you want to jump the queue. It's also your ticket to experience a range of informative and interactive presentations delivered by industry experts, all-abilities adult and children’s entertainment, and food vendors. You'll find the Expo Guide here filled with information you may need about parking, exhibitors, floor plan and the stage and entertainment schedule.

The stage schedule/program is filled with speakers and entertainers. Liam Twomey (pictured below) the 2024 Geelong Disability Expo Ambassador will be at the Expo from 11am on Friday 23 Feb speaking about his journey to becoming a para triathlete and mental health advocate. Liam is a Victorian local who is currently competing to qualify for the 2024 Paris Paralympics, and lucky you, Liam was able to find some time away from his intense training regime to come and speak on the stage!

Christ Henderson (image below) will also take to the stage on Saturday 24 Feb at 12pm to talk about his journey to becoming a leading disabled sportsman. Chris is also a proud disability and mental health advocate for young people with disabilities and chronic illnesses to imagine and pursue what is possible. Other talks covered on stage includes one about the NDIS Improvements and the new processes and computer system. NDIS can be a minefield to navigate, and any clarity is always welcome. How to hire your support workers is another important talk as good support workers can often be hard to find. Be blessed by a Welcome to Country and enjoy the entertainment with Kane “Mr Guitar” Whistance & Mark Huglin in Shadows to ACDC on the Friday. On Saturday you have the SeeMeSing Choir in Cover Me In Sunshine, and an acoustic guitar and singing performance by Luke Beavis. Be sure to check the schedule for the rest of the talk events, and stay in touch via social media for updates.
