After a long year of absence from the Mobility events circuit, TBC Conversions can finally look forward to appearing at live exhibitions and seeing our clients, customers, and colleagues face-to-face. By the end of the year, TBC Conversions’ team and products will have been showcased live in at least two major mobility events, something we have all been looking forward to in 2021.
So, here is a selection of up-and-coming mobility events where you can find TBC Conversions, our products, services and expert staff for the rest of 2021.
Mobility Event: Kidz to Adults – Disabled Living Collective
Date: 28th June 2021 Type: Virtual
Kidz to Adultz Exhibitions are one of the UK’s most prestigious event and publication organisations in the disabled community.
Their work has consistently brought companies together whose products and services benefit the lives of children, young adults, their carers and families with disabilities and additional needs. Under normal circumstances, their live mobility events would be hosted up and down the UK, and over the last year, two successful Venue to Virtual events have already been rolled out.
TBC Conversions have always enjoyed being a part of this growing Disabled Living Collective and have been exhibiting with Kidz to Adultz since our inception. We can look forward to exhibiting our wheelchair accessible vehicles and independent driving aids at the next Venue to Virtual event – Disabled Living Collective and an audience including end-users, carers, families, and HCPs in attendance this June.
The Venue to Virtual Exhibition follows on from the success of previous online mobility events the organisation has hosted during the pandemic. The event will be hosted live and online on the 28th of June and will give people the chance to view the latest equipment and services that are available today and provide guidance on how to get in touch with the companies providing it.
Mobility Event: The Big Event – Motability
Date: 6th & 7th August 2021 Type: Virtual
This is going to be one big day for Motability customers and partners of the scheme as The Big Event goes virtual in 2021.
Considering the pandemic, organisers made the decision to change the usual large scale live mobility event to a virtual showcase for 2021, inviting exhibitors to build virtual stands that will be available to visit for attendees from the comfort of their homes.
TBC Conversions work closely with the Motability Scheme and in the past have enjoyed exhibiting at their One Big Day and The Big Events hosted all around the UK. Our complete range of wheelchair accessible vehicles are available on the Motability Scheme are available to see this year on The Big Event Virtual Showcase, complete with demonstration videos and live chat options to speak with a TBC Sales team member.
The work that has gone into making The Big Event Virtual means it simple and easy for those who would usually attend live exhibitions to join in. What’s more, this virtual mobility event access gives those who are still not comfortable leaving their homes or entering large crowds the opportunity to see all that is available in the mobility world in complete safety.
Mobility Event: Naidex Show
Date: 15th & 16th September 2021 Type: Live
An organisation that work to promote products and services that support independent living, Naidex is an exhibition that TBC Conversions feel is important to be a part of.
After a series of successful virtual showcases, September is promising to be an exciting month for Nadiex and their exhibitors as live events return, and Naidex will be one of the first major hosts to return to face-to-face exhibits.
In September 2021, TBC Conversions will gladly look forward to attending our first live mobility event in over a year. As such a vital part of our customer ethos, in-person interaction is something we have dearly missed during the pandemic. Our free doorstep demonstrations and necessary home vehicle safety checks have continued with safe social distancing and COVID safe procedures in place, but this will be our first chance to get back to what we love doing; seeing our customers.
Plenty of our peers will be feeling as excited as we are about returning to live exhibitions schedules, and we’d like to encourage those who are able to safely do so to attend the Naidex Show as their live mobility event returns in 2021.
Mobility Event: OT Show
Date: 24th & 25th November 2021 Type: Live
Only the second live mobility event taking place in 2021, but one we are extremely happy to be exhibiting at again, The OT Show is a wonderful chance for TBC Conversions to showcase our product to professionals who are likely to use them.
This event prides itself on being the largest educational and inspiring mobility event for a range of occupational therapists working within specialist areas across the UK. The OT Show gives professionals the chance to explore and learn about the tools available to them within their respective sectors and, in the case of TBC Conversions, our WAVs are always a great attraction.
Taking place in the Birmingham NEC in late November, The OT Show is one we always look forward to attending, and for this year those that cannot attend will get the chance to join in online. Organisers have followed the success of their online virtual showcase and combined it with the live event creating a hybrid mobility event that people around the country can attend.
A Hybrid Future for Mobility Events
As we look forward to things returning to some state of normality on the mobility events circuit, we can also look forward to some positive changes happening. As we know in 2020 virtual events became a necessity and now, following positive responses from attendees and exhibitors alike, organisations have continued to develop their online presences keeping virtual events part of the programme.
In 2021, and for the foreseeable future, virtual mobility events will continue to be a part of major events making them accessible for people in their homes and workplaces. Whilst originally intended to enable social distancing, these virtual events will now give people from anywhere in the country the opportunity to access the products, services, and educational material on display without attending a physical event.
At TBC Conversions our team know that attending these major mobility events, give the disabled community and those who work in the sector the chance to come together, share what they know. We look forward to seeing the latest technologies, inspirational speeches and our peers and clients in person.
Whilst we cannot wait to get back out there, we are also excited to embrace the ongoing presence of online mobility events and exhibitions where we can get our products and services out to an audience beyond the physical events.
