Last month saw the return of the largest disability exhibition and conference in the South East, RISE Expo held at the Kent Event Centre, where more than 100 exhibitors showcased some of the leading and latest innovations in disability equipment provision.

The annual event once again proved popular with service users and families who were able to enjoy a day of product research, inclusive have-a-go activities and informative content, while a bustling hall of delegates that were all keen to engage and learn connected after two years of restrictions.

RISE is committed to empowering people living with a disability to improve their quality of life, through events that provide the information and tools they need under one roof.

The RISE Expo delivers an excellent platform for organisations to showcase their products and services to an audience of both health professionals and service users.

Neil Annis, Managing Director at Fostering together said: “RISE expo was a natural choice for us. Having an exhibition stand at the event where we were able meet and have quality conversations with people across the care sector, local authority staff, occupational therapists and other professionals, specialist equipment providers, as well as the general public works for us.”

Topics that the educational conference presentations and practical workshops covered comprised of moving and handling, occupational therapy integration, housing and adaptations, children’s services, care and much more.

Those that were unable to attend the event in person will have access to recorded highlights across the various conference theatres, content will be available in the coming weeks. In order to access the content, sign up to the RISE mailing list to be the first to hear when this is available.

Following the success of RISE Expo 2022 the team are already preparing for its return on Tuesday 12th September 2023.

Additionally, RISE are planning an exciting move to London next year with its brand new Disability Expo event, expected to arrive at ExCel London in June 2023.

Recently, business leaders from across the mobility, independent living and access sectors enjoyed a comprehensive conference programme at the RISE @ THIIS event in Milton Keynes.
