Melbourne Expo

On the 10th & 11th of February, Australian Carers Guide was thrilled to take part in the ACCPA Care and Ageing Well Expo in Melbourne. Our dedicated team joined 80 other exhibitors – ranging from financial planners to independent living specialists – to take part in the 2024 Care & Ageing Well Expo at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre.

Designed for anyone who is either preparing for their future or caring for a loved one, the Melbourne ACCPA Care & Ageing Well Expo showcased the products, services, and information available to assist you in the decision-making process – and we loved being part of it.

During our time at the expo there was an overwhelming number of visitors and many smiling faces to be seen, and we loved having the opportunity to meet many of our wonderful readers over the weekend.

The presenter’s stage was a great success, and saw experts in their field offering advice on topics including dementia and cybercrime.

One of our own contributors, Jean Kittson – who has a regular column in Austraian Carers Guide – took to the stage to promote her book “We Need to Talk About Mum & Dad”, and spent much of her remaining time at our stand signing her book and chatting with the visitors.

We felt incredibly lucky to see so many of our readers at the expo, hearing their stories, and being told how much our guide and resources have positively impacted their lives.

It was great to meet carers and their loved ones and provide them with a copy of Australian Carers Guide to take home to read and enjoy.
