A new independent-living show has been announced especially for the North West of England; the new IIC Show will debut at Manchester Central in February 2014. IIC stands for inclusion, independence and choice: three things that the show is aiming to offer its visitors who are looking for ways to live independently with mobility difficulties.
Said to operate in a similar fashion to the popular Naidex shows, those looking for ways to stay independent in their homes with the use of aids such as new walk in baths will be able to see a range of products at the new IIC Show in February 2014. The show will take place at Manchester Central and will provide visitors with the opportunity to learn more about the help that is available and get professional advice.
According to this article from Thiis magazine, which reports on independent-living news and products, it has been a few years since an event of this kind has been held in the North West of England and the IIC Show was created due to significant demand for an event dedicated to mobility problems and solutions. UKFE are organising the show and Elena Doyle, the group show manager for UKFE, is looking forward to seeing the response from visitors. She told Thiis that the aim is to raise “awareness of inclusion, independence and choice” and that they “will give visitors comprehensive resources to take away with them”.
Those looking for stairlifts in Manchester now have a show that will make it easy for them to see a range of different products from manufacturers that could help them to regain independence within their home, something that those who live around Birmingham have already made the most of at the Naidex National event, just as those who live in Scotland can at Naidex Scotland.
