Naidex is Europe's largest disability and rehabilitation event for trade, healthcare professionals and the general public. Taking place at Birmingham's NEC on the 26th & 27th March 2019, Naidex attracts innovation, information, cutting edge suppliers, and the most inspirational speakers from around the world to one venue, over two unforgettable days.
Striving for greater inclusion and equality for disabled people in society are MASIS's key objectives.
Disabled people and individuals affected by long-term health conditions should be allowed as equal as possible lifestyles as non-disabled people take for granted.
Numerous discussions held with senior personnel from the health and social care sectors over the last 10 years have clearly emphasised that helping to boost self-esteem, wellbeing and positive attitudes within the lifestyles of disabled people is equally as important as the medical treatments they receive to help alleviate their conditions and disabilities.
The diversity of the subjects being considered and addressed by MASIS means that it cannot undertake all issues without the need to network with other service providers and establish commercial partnerships with appropriate companies.
As MASIS is a Registered Charity and a 'not for profit' venture, all surplus funds generated will be re-invested into medically related initiatives which are addressing ways to improve lifestyles of disabled people.

Filled with celebrities, incredible speakers, groundbreaking products, wonderful moments and an overwhelming feeling of happiness; Naidex 44 was everything our visitors hoped for and more!
Here are some of our favourite moments from Naidex 2018.
In 2015 Disabled Access Day began as a day to celebrate good access and to create opportunities for people to try something new. The day was very much about highlighting the fantastic access that already exists in places, experiences such as going on a touch tour, enjoying a relaxed peformance, sensory experiences, signed events, level access and of course a warm welcome!
The Day was founded against the backdrop of wanting to make it easy for disabled people to try something new. Often these activities and experiences are hard to arrange or create a sense of anxiety and fear.
Our founder, Paul's experience of wanting to try getting on a bus with his powerchair but not in the rush hour of a weekday service was the catalyst. He describes it as a day for focusing on creating opportunities for people to attend a series of organised events where they will receive a warm welcome, a chance to try something new and the memory of having done something different. He wants 2019's events and experiences to have a legacy. Just like his telling the story of trying a bus for the first time.
Disabled People are encouraged having tried something new, or visited somewhere new, to share their story so that others can follow. A review on Euan's Guide, a tweet on social media or a blog post all help to make it easier for others considering a similar visit or experience.
We're asking disabled people, their friends and families for 2019 is simply "Try something new and send a review"
Paul answers the question: What will it achieve?
