Mobility Roadshow chooses Telford

The Mobility Roadshow will move to Telford International Centre next June to celebrate its 30th anniversary.
 
The consumer show is focused on mobility and independent lifestyle products and services for people with disabilities. It will be held at Telford for the first time from 27 to 30 June 2013 after three years at Peterborough Arena.
 
“It’s time to move on again to give visitors from the west of the country the chance of easier access to the event,” said Jacqui Jones, the executive director of Mobility Choice, the charity that organises the roadshow.
 
“We are looking forward to the exciting new opportunities that Telford International Centre can offer, including all-indoor exhibition space.”
 
A new feature of next year’s event will allow visitors to take test drives on public roads around the venue. The organiser said 175 exhibitors participated this year and 60 adapted vehicles were available to test drive.
 
“The innovation behind some of the robotic products we saw at this year’s event is light years away from what was available back in 1983 when we began, so we really have lots to celebrate 30 years on,” Jones continued.
 
The Mobility Roadshow was launched at the Transport Research Laboratory in Crowthorne and has been held in various locations across the UK including Donington and Stoneleigh Park and Kemble Airfield.
 
Southwater Event Group chief executive Tom Gray welcomed the event to its Telford venue and highlighted its proximity to the UK motorway network as a major factor in the decision.
 
“The flexibility and capacity of our event space has given the organisers a whole range of options when it comes to delivering a dynamic and exciting show that will give visitors the chance to find out more about how to live as independently as possible,” he said.
