British and Irish Aviation Expo
This year saw the 4th British-Irish Airports EXPO hosted by Heathrow Airport at the London Olympia, with 100+ speakers, 130 exhibitors, 3000+ visitors and some big names including Frank Gardner and Dion Dublin. At the event Josh, had the fantastic opportunity to open the 2 day expo as the first speaker on the main Concorde stage. Introducing the easyTravelseat to the UK aviation industry.
Southampton Airport Accessibility Forum
We were recently at Southampton Airport following the British and Irish Expo, to showcase the easyTravelseat, alongside attending their 6 monthly Accessibility Group Forum for the Airport. It’s clear they are doing a fantastic job in growing their airport and at the same time making it more accessible and as smooth as possible for disabled passengers – this was evident in the recent UK CAA Airport Accessibility Report, rated very good.
Kidz to Adultz South West Event – Bristol
Another fantastic exhibition hosted by Disabled Living, giving the opportunity for those with disabilities, parents, OT’s, physios and businesses to come together to share the latest products, services, opportunities available for those with disabilities. We were very busy across the day and sharing a stand with Bristol Airport helped drive conversations with customers about accessibility as a whole at Bristol Airport but also their delight with easyTravelseat. A fantastic day and we will see everyone again in Manchester for the North event later this November.
Posture and Mobility Group Conference – Telford
A special thanks to AATGB for allowing us to share their stand at this years PMG conference in Telford. A great 2 days meeting many Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists, wheelchair services, wheelchair manufactureres and other seating specialists. We are working AATGB, looking at the Stabilo functionality and application within the easyTravelseat – watch this space folks!
