Events and Exhibitions
We run events across the West of England to connect people and help them find solutions to the challenges faced when living with sight loss
At our events and exhibitions, you can expect to find a wide range of commercial and voluntary sector organisations. They showcase the full range of products and services available for people with sight loss – from the latest in new technology to holidays.
Starting in 2022, we are aiming to hold two large exhibition events every year, named ‘Eye Can’ exhibitions. They will take place in four key locations across the region: we will alternate between Bristol, Bath, Swindon, and Salisbury. We have chosen these locations to be accessible to as many of our service users as possible and whilst these will still present a distance to travel for many of you, we hope to ensure they offer enough value to justify travelling a bit further than usual.
Our first exhibition will be held at the Memorial Stadium in Bristol on Wednesday 16th March, find more information below or on our ‘What’s On‘ listing.
Eye Can exhibitions are free public events designed to provide an opportunity for blind and partially sighted people, along with their friends and family, to meet national and local product suppliers, opportunity providers, and service providers.
Each exhibition will have around 30 exhibitors covering a range of interest areas. These include technology, sport & leisure, work & employment, health & wellbeing, as well as an area for children, young people, and families. In addition, there will be a varied speaker programme and opportunities to meet new and old friends.
We are very grateful to Optelec – ‘Leaders in low vision magnification’, Newmedica – Eye Health Clinics and Irwin Mitchell for sponsoring the 2022 Eye Can events.
To book your place at one of our Eye Can exhibitions please register your details at Eventbrite.
