Texpo is an annual event organised by Vision Australia that showcases the latest in products and services that can assist people who are blind or have low vision. It occurs around September every year in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane at our Kooyong, Enfield and Coorparoo centres.
With a wide range of Australian and international technology suppliers exhibiting their products, it is a great chance to see all the different models and brands in the one location. Texpo features presentations on key topics about emerging trends in technology such as high definition magnification, tablet computers, the world of apps and accessibility, the joy of reading with ebooks and, this year, even advancements in cooking technology for those budding master chefs.
People come from everywhere to visit Texpo, even interstate. It’s a great place to be able to chat with our professional staff, product suppliers and catch up with friends, both new and old.
Texpo is a free event open to the general public. It is well attended by people who are blind or have low vision and their friends and family, people who work in the disability and aged care sectors, employers, government representatives – virtually anyone with an interest in learning more about blindness and low vision.
