It's hard to believe that it has been more than a year since we have brought you any live Abilities Expos. We have missed you so much! But with the COVID-19 vaccine rollout in full swing and more and more of the US population inoculated every day, our country is finally able to loosen its restrictions.

We are thrilled to share that we have been given the green light to move forward on our 2021 Abilities Expos, while complying with CDC, state and local safety measures. Here's the line-up:

Chicago: June 25-27 at Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center
Houston: August 6-8 at NRG Center
Phoenix: September 10-12 at WestWorld of Scottsdale
New York Metro: October 1-3 at New Jersey Convention & Expo Center
Los Angeles: October 29-31 at Los Angeles Convention Center
Toronto: November 12-13 at The International Centre
Dallas: December 3-5 at Dallas Market Hall

The safety of our attendees, exhibitors and staff continues to be paramount and we will comply with all venue requirements and utilize such CDC-recommended precautions as social distancing, temperature checks, hand sanitation stations and providing face masks. As we are taking measures to make the registration process as contactless as possible, please make sure you register digitally in advance of the event. As always, registration is free.

Spoiler alert: The Coloplast-sponsored adaptive climbing wall is coming back to almost all of the 2021 Expos along with Paralympian, extreme athlete and climbing wall coach Mark Wellman! You can also look forward to adaptive activities, info-packed workshops, service animals and, of course, a wide range of game-changing products and services to boost your independence.

Scott B. summed it up nicely when he said, "Finally! Back at the venues LIVE!!" Michelle E. echoed these sentiments, saying, "We will be there… this is my most awesomest favorite place."
