Over 55 exhibitors from across the state, attended to promote their business services and opportunities including:  education and training,  specialised equipment, Australian disability enterprises, disability employment services, post school programs, respite and accommodation, mental health support services, sport, leisure and recreation, disability support services & adaptive technology.

Outside of the stadium was range of vehicle exhibitors with mobility, transport and further service information.

A group of students studying community services at TAFE Western organised all-inclusive activities as part of the International Day activities including a drumming circle, dancing, blindfold making, blind soccer, paper plane making and more. There was an opportunity to complete all activates and win prizes for participation on the day.

Our own Women’s shed showed their community spirit by donating their time to cook a free BBQ lunch for everyone who attended. A number of our employees joined them to serve the food.

Wangarang’s employees were given the option to attend the event. Our training and support officers also attended to gain much needed industry related information. Our Marketing coordinator sat on the committee and coordinated all the advertising and media for the event.
