DNEX 2016 - The Annual Exhibition of Disability North

The North’s largest annual independent living exhibition will take place on Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd September 2016 at Newcastle Racecourse and will open daily at 10:00 A.M. DNEX is hosted by Disability North- a leading disability resource in the North East and Cumbria. 2016 marks the 30th DNEX exhibition.    

DNEX is a must- attend event and there is something for everyone including digital technology, aids and adaptations for independent living and accessible leisure facilities. This free exhibition provides information, advice and equipment for disabled people, older adults, carers and health and social care professionals on a range of disability related issues.

In an exciting new development, DNEX 2016 will be co-located for the first time with Disabled Living Foundation's (DLF) Moving & Handling People North: the two-day CPD-accredited learning event for healthcare professionals.
