Abilities Expo/Texas Moves to San Antonio January 26-28, 2007

Event Originally Scheduled for Houston in December has been Cancelled

Abilities Expo/Texas, the one show dedicated to educating and improving the lives of people with disabilities, senior citizens, their families & caregivers, as well as healthcare and education professionals will be held in San Antonio, Texas. The three-day event will take place at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio starting, Friday, January 26 and continuing through Sunday, January 28, 2007.

We are committed to bringing this event to the Texas marketplace for the 2nd year and appreciate the feedback from the industry on the dates and location that will work best, said Veronica Gonnello, Show Director for Abilities Expo. We have heard from many of our exhibitors that the original dates in December in Houston were not convenient and so therefore we will be offering the event in a new venue in January 2007.

During the event, attendees will have a chance to discover and learn about new products and services - from computers to athletic equipment and mobility products to daily living aids - all conveniently displayed to see, test and compare. Local and regionally based organizations that work with people with disabilities will also be participating.

Abilities Expo also offers a complimentary educational program with curriculum focusing on relevant topics addressing life today for individuals with disabilities, their family and caregivers. The comprehensive workshop programs will consist of consumer and professional tracks, with certificates of participation available to students, and education and healthcare professionals.

Special show services will be available for attendees including Complimentary Wheelchair Repair provided by Hands on Concepts. Loaner Wheelchairs will be provided by Permobil. For People with Visual Impairments, there will be special workshops and exhibitor information handouts available in large type. For People with Hearing Impairments, there will be a sign language interpreter available to assist persons who are deaf or hearing impaired, for a reasonable length of time per person.
