2019 DAL Expo Event Report
The 2019 Disability, Ageing and Lifestyle Expo was held on Thursday, 17 October at the Adelaide Showground. The event was highly successful and attracted exhibitors from a wide variety of organisations including those in health and well-being, mobility equipment, support services, rehabilitation, ageing, entertainment and disability and employment. Visitors to the Expo were pleased with the breadth and availability of exhibitors as it led to a greater understanding of services that are available and of interest.
Catalyst Foundation’s valuable contribution to the South Australian community was recognised by Senator the Hon. Richard Colbeck, Federal Minister for Aged Care and Senior Australians, who opened the DAL Expo Networking Breakfast by video with other key dignitaries in attendance. The Hon. Michelle Lensink MLC, Minister for Human Services, attended and addressed the Expo, mentioning the role played by the event to enable Exhibitors to further their understanding and better service of the needs of their clients.
By creating an event for the community, service providers and health professionals, Catalyst Foundation has once again demonstrated its capacity to bring people and services together while cementing the reputation of the Expo in the calendar of exhibitors and visitors as a ‘must-go’ annual event.
