This year the Learning Disability Today Show celebrates its tenth birthday.

The show will take place on the 8th December 2010 and is organised by Pavilion, part of OLM Group at the Business Design Centre London. The show is the largest event of its kind in the UK, and will bring together over 4,000 people from across the learning disability community, 100 trade stands from projects, initiatives and organisations who work across the sector will be in attendance and professionals will be available to respond to visitor’s queries and questions.

The show, which is sponsored by the charity Hft and media partnered with The Society Guardian, is aimed at those who work with people who have learning disabilities or have learning disabilities of their own. At the heart of the exhibition is the Town Square which will be showcasing workshops, presentations, awards, performance and one-to-one surgeries from our exhibitors and sponsors. 12 seminars will take place throughout the day covering a variety of topics that include; employment, housing, hate crime, advocacy and families.

Informal and interactive zones will also be set up throughout the show, where visitors can participate in a range of projects and activities. The zones will include; the Arts Zone, the Media Zone, the Eye Zone, the Sports Zone, and the Film Zone.

Helen Charlton, Marketing Manager of Pavilion, part of OLM Group, comments, “we are really excited about the show this year as it looks set to be our biggest and most interesting yet, it’s also our 10th birthday so we will be celebrating ten years of working towards improving the lives of people with learning disabilities with seminars, master classes, interactive zones, awards, competitions and performances.”
