HDS MEDALLION® is once again taking to the road and this time we will be at the 2012 Abilities Expo in Houston, TX. Taking place from Friday, August 3rd through Sunday August 5th at the Reliant Center in Hall E, the Abilities Expo is a great opportunity for people with disabilities to interact with businesses and manufacturers who design products that make living with a disability easier. We attended the last Expo in New Jersey in May and were very grateful for the amazing feedback we received regarding our designer carryall bags and we are looking forward to more good times in Houston.
You can find us at booth #538 and joining us will be our designer, Sharon Richardson, who will be listening to the needs of people who use power chairs, wheelchairs, scooters and even walkers, and finding out what new designs might be helpful in creating future bags. We will be bringing with us prototypes for children’s bags and larger women’s bags as well as longer straps to test out on the Colours brand Wheelchairs. We find the Abilities Expo to be a great time to interact with the people who use our bags and find out firsthand what is working and what needs to be improved upon. We will also be bringing along our entire Premier Collection line of designer carryall bags that can be used on power chairs and wheelchairs and detached for using as a shoulder bag.
Admission to the Expo is free and will be open on Friday, August 3rd from 11am – 5pm, Saturday, August 4th from 11am to 5pm and Sunday, August 5th from 11am to 4pm. At the Expo in New Jersey we were fortunate enough to meet cast members from the show Push Girls and who knows who we will run into in Houston. If you are in the area and have the chance to stop in please pay us a visit.
