For the past 17 years, Ability Fest has brought together once a year, as many service providers to our disabled community as possible. Each year the event has grown from a small venue with approx 20 exhibitors, to our current numbers of exhibitors of approx 70. 

Joining forces with the Independed Living Scotland Event allows the Ability Fest to  thrive as a unique event providing a focal point for exhibitors to encourage visitors to talk to them about services available. Through feedback, Ability Fest has seen some of our visitors lives change simply because of relationships gained through meeting people at Ability Fest.

Overall organisations exhibiting at Ability Fest are recognised as forward thinking organisations who pride themselves in their involved with Equality & Diversity. Visitor, fellow exhibitors and visitors to the website also recognise the organisations taking part in the event as Inclusive Employers working together to break down the barriers faced by our disabled community of Job Seekers and Service users.

Ability Fest 2017 will welcome min 50 exhibitors and we notice each year the level of networking happening between exhibitors. With Guest Speakers from chosen areas of the local community, this is a perfect time to introduce your organisation and strike up a new important relationship.

Ability Fest form strong partnerships with suppliers of all services from advertising to catering and through these partnerships we often are able to provide our exhibitors with chosen contacts to allow additional marketing of their service in line with the event - creating further saturation of an audience who may not be able to attend the event, however read a publication or visit a website.
