This free, 2-day event will feature over 120 exhibitors


On Friday the 3rd of August and Saturday the 4th of August 2018, the Gold Coast Disability Expo will be taking place at the Gold Coast Event Centre in Bundall.

The event is targeted towards people with a disability, their friends and family, carers, support workers, and others who are involved with the disability sector.

This is a great opportunity to gain information about various products and services that are currently available to assist people with a disability, including information about the NDIS, which was rolled out on the Gold Coast at the start of July.
