As the coronavirus situation continues to escalate in the UK with tighter restrictions being imposed on residents to reduce the risk of spreading the virus, Disabled Living has announced that its popular exhibition Kidz to Adultz South has been rescheduled until the 30th of September 2020.

This difficult decision has been taken in order to protect the health and safety of visitors from the virus, in particular the vulnerable disabled children who would be considered at higher risk of being ill from COVID-19.

The Kidz to Adultz events are dedicated to children and young adults with disabilities and additional needs, their parents, carers and the professionals who support them. Organised in a regional format, the exhibitions see companies showcase their latest paediatric innovations and enable healthcare professionals to attend free CPD seminars.

According to organisers of the event Disabled Living, the Kidz exhibitions are a valuable and key source of information and advice for visitors.

Originally scheduled for May 2020, Kidz to Adultz South will now take place on Wednesday 30th of September 2020, 9:30am-4:30pm at the Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre.

In a statement issued by Disabled Living about the decision to postpone the show, it said: “Like many charities this has been a very complex and difficult time. Our priority continues to be the safety of all those involved, in particular our vulnerable children and young adults, their carers and the health professionals who support them, as well as our team and of course all the exhibitors and contractors involved in putting together these amazing events.

“We will be sending out regular newsletters and mailings to all our contacts and posting regular updates on our website and social media sites including lots of useful tips and ways to keep fit and entertained during this period of isolation.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our wonderful visitors and all those who contribute to these events for all their continued support. In the meantime, keep safe and well!”

In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and in an effort to protect the health and safety of staff, exhibitors and visitors alike, both Naidex and Med-Tech Innovation Expo have also rescheduled their shows to autumn this year.
