AUTONOMIA Exhibition 2009

People with disabilities and elderly

Welcome to the great celebration of disability, technology, aesthetics and culture which is taking place on the 15th, 16th and 17th of May 2009 at the most accessible place in Athens, the Stadium of Peace and Friendship!

Covering 4,500 m², Autonomia Expo constitutes the largest exhibition of products and services for disability, health, rehabilitation, special education, technology and independent living in Greece, also attracting participation from European providers. It also encompasses disability seminars and cultural events. In reality, it is a celebration of disability as difference in living terms, of accessible ways of living, of aesthetics and culture. Its first opening last year had an unprecedented attendance of people with disabilities as well as other stakeholders in the field of disability. The success of Autonomia EXPO lies in remaining closest and responding to consumer needs and demands which exceed stereotypes of disability, and in bringing together people with a common view of an active and achieving disability.
