The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has changed the way we live, work, and socialise. The Disability Expo was traditionally held across six different regions (Sydney, Nepean, Melbourne, Geelong, Brisbane, and the Gold Coast) on various dates throughout the year. But this year it was combined into one event and held virtually on a central platform and at no charge for attendance. LiveBig were thrilled to secure a silver sponsorship at this important event.
The Virtual Disability Expo was a fantastic opportunity for people with disability, their families and carers to connect with a variety of disability service providers and obtain helpful information from the comfort and safety of their own home.
LiveBig was thrilled to participate as a silver sponsor, meeting with many booth visitors and having many conversations about our therapy services which include psychology, speech pathology, exercise physiology, occupational therapy and physiotherapy. Our virtual booth had an engaging atmosphere over the two-day event with a range of informative and interactive features. Stephanie, our team member who attended the event, was available for video chats, text, and personal messages in real-time. LiveBig spoke to many people, including clients, families, support coordinators, and NDIS providers regarding the services we provide. The range of information and interactive features saw us receive 236 booth visits with 29 direct requests for more information.
Stephanie said: “ This expo has been a huge success. I am really excited by the turnout, the number of people that I have spoken with and the relationships I have formed with clients, families and support coordinators. The expo functions, which included chats and zoom meetings, was beneficial to all as we had so many questions about our telehealth services, especially from people in the Victoria region”.
At LiveBig, we will always adapt our service delivery processes to overcome any challenges that may arise during Coronavirus. Our number one priority is to continue to safely meet the needs of our clients, no matter the circumstances. We are grateful that events like these enable us to connect and help people from the safety of their homes.
