Autonomia Expo 2008Covering 4,500 m², Autonomia Expo constitutes the largest exhibition of products and services for disability, health, rehabilitation, special education, technology and independent living in Greece, also attracting participation from European providers. It also encompasses disability seminars and cultural events. In reality, it is a celebration of disability as difference in living terms, of accessible ways of living, of aesthetics and culture. Its first opening last year had an unprecedented attendance of people with disabilities as well as other stakeholders in the field of disability.
