Catalyst Foundation is in its fourth year of hosting the Disability Ageing and Lifestyle Expo.  Over the past three year, the expo was attended by over 10,000 attendees and 500 exhibitors. The variety of organisations represented included health, wellbeing, travel, mobility equipment, support services, rehabilitation, sporting and many more.

This year the Expo will be held on Thursday, 27 September at Adelaide Showground, Goyder Pavilion from 9am to 4pm (open to public at 10am), with an entry fee of a gold coin donation. Held in the Goyder Pavilion, just off Goodwood Road, the Expo is easily accessible for visitors with mobility needs and those using public transport.

The Disability, Ageing and Lifestyle Expo will explore practical ideas, research and initiatives under the ‘My Life, My Choice’ theme. My Life, My Choice, is about empowering individuals and families to ensure that they remain at the centre of decisions related to their needs and what types of services and support planning is available. The expo also continues to focus on improving the physical, social and emotional wellbeing of people living with disabilities, those on the ageing journey and those interested in living an active lifestyle. It’s about encouraging people to welcome and embrace the option of choices and flexibility when making important resolutions about their wellbeing, care and support.

The 2018 Disability, Ageing and Lifestyle Expo will provide sponsors and exhibitors with access to more than 3,000 people who are supported by disability, ageing and lifestyle organisations - including family, friends and carers who rely on accessing quality information to support informed decisions. Accessing quality information can not only be a daunting task, but also an incredibly frustrating one. The Disability, Ageing and Lifestyle Expo bring all this information under one roof.

It’s going to be a great day and we look forward to seeing you in September!
