Convaid is putting finishing touches on its new booth that will make its debut at Abilities Expo Los Angeles, to be held from February 5-7, 2016 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, West Hall A. Convaid’s business development team will showcase Convaid’s latest pediatric mobility offering, the Trekker, at Booth 807.

Convaid’s Pacific Region Business Development Representative, Rebecca Hombs, will demonstrate Convaid’s latest pediatric mobility offering, the Convaid Trekker, daily at 1PM during Abilities Expo, and other popular Convaid models, including the Convaid Cruiser, Rodeo and EZ Rider — as well as Convaid’s state-of-the-art special needs child seating restraint system, the Carrot 3.

Abilities Expo Los Angeles is free to the public and has recently changed its hours of exposition to 11AM to 5PM on Friday, February 5; 10AM to 6PM on Saturday, February 6; and shorter Sunday hours, from 10AM to 2PM, on February 7.

This year, Convaid will introduce new features to its booth, including an interactive digital display and real-time social media sharing contest. Also new this year is an appearance by Convaid’s newly appointed 2016 Southern California Ambassador family, the Hamiltons, where Convaid Cruiser user Emerson, will be in attendance with her mother, Dawn, on Saturday, February 6 and Sunday, February 7, 2016.

“The Abilities Expo is THE place to see the latest greatest products and services available to help children like Emmy with physical disabilities reach their full potential in daily living, and Convaid has always been one of the main vendors we look forward to checking out at the Expo each year.
