NAIDEX 2011 Press release

Scottish Autism to attend this year's NAIDEX Scotland

Scottish Autism has announced it will exhibit at this year’s Naidex Scotland event which takes place 14th – 15th September at the SECC in Glasgow.

Naidex Scotland stages its disability and healthcare exhibition only once every two years, providing a fantastic platform to promote independent living across the disability community in Scotland and the North of England. Previously known as Independent Living Scotland, Naidex is set to build on the success of previous years with thousands of products on display and a wealth of expert help and advice available. Scottish Autism’s exhibition will be at Stand B39.

Charlene Tait, Development Director at Scottish Autism, will also make an address at the event on the Thursday (15 Sep) about issues, challenges and opportunities in the field of autism in Scotland. She said: “We are delighted to be involved in this year’s event. Promoting maximum independence and a higher quality of life for people on the autism spectrum is one of the key focuses of our organisation. We welcome a major platform that Naidex Scotland will offer us to promote a positive message and build our network.”

Naidex Scotland Event Director, Liz Virgo, said: “It is estimated that in Scotland there is a disabled person or person with a long-term illness living in just over one in three households. As Scotland’s only disability, rehabilitation and homecare show, Naidex Scotland caters for a widespread need by providing access to all the latest independent living solutions and services available on the disability market. It is great to be returning to Scotland this year and we are certainly planning on repeating the success of 2009’s show.”

Naidex Scotland will showcase the best in independent living and mobility aids from over 150 exhibitors and promises to be an inspirational and informative experience for members of the public, trade buyers, retailers and healthcare professionals alike. The show provides a unique opportunity for people in Scotland and the North of England to test and compare all the latest products and equipment that can make a real difference to everyday living.

Visitors to Naidex Scotland can expect to see all the usual show features that make visiting so worthwhile such as the Inspiration Theatre, an interactive forum where visitors can listen to inspirational case studies and the Communication & Learning Village, home to the latest communication aids and assistive technology. New features that have now been added to the show include the Car Zone, where many of the UK’s leading vehicle converters, will be exhibiting the latest wheelchair assisted vehicle developments. Also making its Naidex Scotland debut is KideQuip, the must see zone dedicated to children with special needs, where visitors and healthcare professionals will be able to meet and discuss individual needs and products with exhibitors.
