The Abilities Expo has been a one stop shop for all things accessible for nearly 40 years. The newest technologies and solutions are all available together under one roof for people with disabilities, veterans, seniors, and their families.
MobilityWorks is excited to be participating in this year’s Abilities Expo, from May 4th-6th at the New Jersey Convention & Expo Center. We will have Certified Mobility Consultants from our locations in Highland Park, Farmingdale, East Hartford, Cinnaminson, Allentown, Woodbury, Bear, and Norristown. They will be in booth #1113 to answer any questions about accessible vehicles and adaptive equipment.
A few of the Events that will be at the 2018 New York Abilities Expo:
