    Abilities Expo

    Hi everyone.

    Long time without been around here, never is late

    I am planning a trip to US, and I would like to take advantage and try to visit the most important Abilities Expo in US or one of the best ones.
    Could you tell me please which are them, when and where?
    Would be Chicago a good option?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you had to choose one between DC Metro or Toronto, which would you go?

    Thanks

    I live in Houston, TX and I'm planning on attending the Abilities Expo I've lived here since 2008 and I have never been to one. I think all the Abilities Expos are the same?

    Mostly they are the same, but some vendors do not go to all of the events, especially in smaller cities.

    Over the years, I've been to the Abilities Expos in Los Angeles, New York Metro (New Jersey), and San Mateo, CA (San Francisco Bay Area). Without a doubt Los Angeles and New Jersey were superior to San Mateo. Sure you will have the big vendors show up displaying wheelchairs and converted vehicles, but the smaller vendors tend to pick and choose depending on the information they get from the Expo sponsors about attendance and other demographic information provided to exhibitors. When you go to the link for Abilities Expo, you can check out which vendors will be at each expo and how big of a display area they will have. Depending on your interest in going to the Expo, you may find that the exhibitors at one will suit your interest better than another.

    Toronto's boring. Nothing cutting edge there. I think LA is the big one.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    We (GO! Nobility Solutions) have been exhibiting at the Abilities Expos for the past 12 yrs. NY/NJ had been the biggest (best-attended) for many years but the LA sho has pulled ahead. Chicago is quite a bit smaller and draw less exhibitors.
