Interested in Presenting a Workshop at an Abilities Expo Show?

Abilities Expo is always seeking speakers to share their expertise and knowledge with attendees. Are you a dynamic presenter with information to share on a topic of interest to people with disabilities and those who support them – families, friends and caregivers? We would like to hear from you! Please review the information below for complete details about the workshop program, how to submit a proposal, and deadlines.

Each Abilities Expo show presents workshops focused on relevant and useful information. The best workshops for Abilities Expo are those that present practical information that is useful for people with a wide range of disabilities. Please note we do not present motivational, inspirational, or life-story workshops.
