Here is a link to a free 3 day show in the New York /New Jersey area. I went to their site and found lots of interesting links to specialty products and services for disabled people. It is worth a look. Herb

Hello Jack - the show is also going to be in Georgia and California later this year. They will be exhibiting a lot of products of interest to amputees that are hard to find. I have bought a lot of products on line that turned out to be junk that I would have liked to have tried  out before buying. Herb

I went to the NJ one a few years ago with a couple friends.  Made a day of it.  It's probably not worth doing all 3 days unless you are fanatical.  Or if they have a special demonstration to keep you coming back.  But it is a good chance to see and try some of the items you might only see in pictures before you buy.

I went to the Expo in NJ a few years ago - may go back this year.  As Jason said, one day is enough fpr most of us.  They have some good stuff not available elsewhere.  If you're considering a handicap-equipped vehicle, it's a must.  Also, lots of wheelchaits, scooters, various other equipment.

BTW, for those of us who have attended an ACA Conference, the exhibits are virtually 100% different.
