The ATSA Independent Living Expo is a key event for those involved in the aged care sector.

Held only every two years, this expo provides a platform for industry professionals to come together, exchange ideas, and learn about the latest innovations and developments in the field. Whether you’re a care worker, administrator, or business owner, attending the ATSA Independent Living Expo is a valuable opportunity to stay upto-date with the latest trends and advancements in independent and daily living products.​

The seminar program, which is free to attend, has a number of international guests, many returning to Australia for the first time since borders have reopened, and some presenting at ATSA for the first time. The program will have new panel sessions as well as the return of the popular adaptive clothing fashion show that was launched in Brisbane last year at all three events in 2023. The presentations are always well attended and are a drawcard for the event.
