Organisers of the Links for Life Disability Expo said that more than 600 people had already passed through the doors by 11am.
The 2023 expo at Tamworth's Sports Dome on Thursday, September 14, was an opportunity for the region's disability support services to come together in the one place.
The event was aimed at people with disabilities and ongoing medical conditions, their families, carers, support networks and service providers, to find information and advice on early intervention services, carer support, advocacy, accommodation, training and education, employment, post-school options, equipment, adaptive technology and NDIS
In something different this year, the last hour of the expo was held as a special 'quiet hour', when announcements were ceased, and the lights dimmed.
