On August 2-4 Houston will play host to the annual Abilities Expo, an event that features resources and information for people with disabilities. With workshops, athletic events, new technology previews and a host of exhibitors, the Abilities Expo visits seven US cities including Los Angeles and Chicago as well as Singapore.
HDS MEDALLION® has attended several Abilities Expo shows and is very excited to be returning to Houston where we’ve made many friends and look forward to making many more. As usual there are show specials (5% – 15% off) and daily drawings for bags (3 in total) to be given to the lucky winners. We have two new collections for people to see – the Metro and the Demi-Premier. The Metro is brand new and features terrific animal prints, a larger size zippered closing. The Demi-Premiers are our smallest bags with attached but adjustable straps that make them just perfect for small wheelchairs, power chairs, etc. They are bright and fun. COME BY BOOTH 505!
After you come to see our new bags and enter our drawing, be sure and check out the rest of the Expo. Lots of good things to watch, learn and perhaps even purchase from the 125+ booths. Registration is free.
Workshops available include:
– How to Select the Right Accessible Vehicle for You
– Wheelchair Standards: Examining the Evidence
– Thriving, not just surviving as the Parent of a Special Needs Child
And rumor has it that Auti Angel of Push Girls will be conducting her last dance workshop for a while. Seeing this amazing woman and artist perform is something you will never forget. Don’t miss it – its loads of fun.
The Houston show will take place at the Reliant Center which is at One Reliant Park.
Show Hours are:
Friday 11 am – 5 pm
Saturday 11 am – 5 pm
Sunday 11 am – 4 pm
