The pandemic might have put a halt to most exhibitions and events this year, but many are now turning to technology to engage audiences, staging virtual events designed to keep people informed. This is particularly crucial in the disability arena where so much has been postponed or cancelled.
Disability Awareness Day, usually staged live in Warrington, already enjoyed an established profile as a pan-disability event, promoting a ‘can do’ culture focused around what disabled people can achieve in life and in work. Now taking place as a virtual event, the 2020 Day is proving massively popular and is already fully booked for exhibitors.
Medequip is delighted to be participating on this exciting virtual platform. It’s our debut in terms of virtual events, with the team already hard at work to develop further outreach techniques to get the message across in a variety of virtual settings.
It’s all about interactivity. For this event, Medequip has focused on providing information, advice and guidance in an engaging and accessible manner. Just like a live event, visitors can attend our virtual stand, download live video links and get involved in live Q&A sessions.

On the day, Medequip staff will be manning the virtual stand, responding to questions and signposting self-help guides. With live video links, an interactive brochure stand and even a ‘table top’ with downloadable discount vouchers, it’s as good as being there!
