Disability North is holding the North’s largest Independent Living exhibition DNEX at the Metro Radio Arena on Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st October 2010. Supported by Three Rivers Housing, North Tyne Construction, The R & B Group and the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead, the exhibition provides information, equipment and advice for disabled people, older adults, carers and health / social care professionals. On average DNEX attracts over 5,000 visitors and there is something for everyone at this year’s event including independent living equipment, adaptations and leisure facilities. There are two new features to the exhibition this year. The firstly is the brand new ‘Smart Home’ which will demonstrate some of the most innovated designs around. The ‘Smart Home’ will demonstrate how all kinds of equipment can be adapted for home living. The second new feature to the exhibition this year will be our new section ‘Just for Kids’ which is a dedicated arena to children and their parents. DNEX 2010 will once again feature a fashion show by Percy Hedley Foundation's Adult Services and a Guide Dog demonstration. DNEX 2010 is an informative and rewarding experience taking place in an accessible city centre location, and is designed to assist you or those close to you in achieving greater independence and a better quality of life.
