Abilities Expo Set for March 14-16 in Atlanta

ATLANTA – The latest in products, services and technology for people with disabilities, their families, seniors, veterans and healthcare professionals will be showcased at the Abilities Expo on March 14-16 at the Georgia World Congress Center in downtown Atlanta. Admission is free, and show hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 14 and 15, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 16.

“This is a one-stop shop for products, services and support, as well as a great opportunity to talk to manufacturers, vendors, providers and peers face to face,” says Mark Johnson, Shepherd Center’s director of advocacy, who is serving as an Expo ambassador.  

The Abilities Expo, which has been in existence for 30 years, started as a show for people with mobility impairments, but is now more inclusive of all disabilities, including physical, sensory, learning and developmental, Johnson says.

The three-day event will include exhibits, workshops, hands-on demonstrations and entertainment for people of all ages. As it has in the past, Shepherd Center will be a part of the Assistive Technology Pavilion, as well as the adaptive sports and library services exhibits.
