Don't Take Our Word for it...


  • “Naidex is important for keeping up to date with the available products on the market. It’s also useful to the see them being demonstrated and used by clients at the event. Seeing products in action and in person helps to justify what you feel the patient needs. It offers a chance to feedback to the producers and manufacturers about their products which one normally wouldn’t have a chance to do.”
    Independent Occupational Therapist
  • "The quality of Naidex show is excellent. Not only are we showcasing our product, meeting prospects, but we as a team, learnt a lot from the experience, from the stories our visitors shared with us at our stand."
    Co-Founder of BAWA Cane
  • "9/10, I would definitely recommend the event to other OTs.”
    Independent Occupational Therapist
  • "I feel it’s a really important show for not only disabled people themselves, but also the industry.. as far as, you know, adaptations, wheelchairs, scooters and also therapeutic offerings as well. I’ve always found something that I didn’t know existed."
