Northern Ireland’s Largest Disability Exhibition 2018 is due to arrive at the Eikon Complex, Balmoral Park, Lisburn on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd June, 10am to 4pm on each day.  This year the Exhibition will be back with the Motability Scheme hosting their Northern Ireland show ‘The Big Event’ on the same dates. Two days, two great events, all in the one place!

A wide range of exhibitors will take part across the two day Exhibition which enables people with disabilities, their families and friends, carers and professionals to get information on latest products and services for disabled people including transport, aids and equipment, services, benefits and much more. Plus Motability Operations will offer you a chance to see all that the Motability Scheme has to offer, including a display of the wide range of cars, Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs), scooters and powered wheelchairs available to lease through the Scheme.

Visitors will get the chance to test drive a selection of the cars with professional driving instructors. Expert Motability Scheme advisors will be on hand to answer questions and provide helpful advice.

The Exhibition is sure to be a great day out for all the family with entertainment for the children, not to mention a chance to meet the Motability Scheme mascot, Billy the Bear!

Kevin Doherty, Chief Executive, Disability Action said: "I would encourage people to take the opportunity to visit this free exhibition.  Not only will it be a great day out for the family but also a fantastic opportunity to access a wide range of information and advice all under one roof.”

"People who attend the Exhibition often comment on how helpful it has been in terms of seeing the latest aids and equipment as well as the wealth of information available."

Alison Beasley, Motability Operations event manager, said:

“This is the third time we have brought one of our summer events to Northern Ireland and we’re really excited to be able to meet our customers here once again. Our aim is to provide disabled motorists with a chance to explore all their mobility options in one accessible location while having a fun day out too.”

This bi-annual show is jointly organised by Disability Action, Northern Ireland’s leading disability organisation and Motability Operations, who deliver the Motability Scheme.
