A fun filled day at Kidz Scotland 2015

It was a hugely successful day for the NRS team last Thursday as Steve Gould and Bruce Flemming, our Area Sales Managers, travelled to the Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh for Kidz Scotland 2015.

Launched in September last year, Kidz Scotland is one of the largest, FREE UK exhibitions dedicated to children and young adults with disabilities and special needs, their families and the professionals who work with them.

A day of learning, leading and liaising!

Free seminars were held throughout the day, exploring a range of topics including sleep and continence issues for children living with a disability, legal advice, payment methods and more. Parents and professionals alike were invited to attend these sessions for advice and, from the response online alone, they proved to be exceptionally valuable.

With other exhibitors taking to social media and urging visitors of the event to “Make sure you go to see these lovely, friendly guys” (@PromoConUK), Bruce and Steve did a fantastic job of managing the NRS stand throughout the day – meeting people from many different backgrounds and explaining just what a difference the right daily living aids can make to children with special needs.

As Bruce told us “Returning to Kidz Scotland this year did not disappoint. The venue was packed all day, not just with professionals but also with parents – many of whom had brought their children with them to the event – so it was a fantastic opportunity to talk to families face to face about the practical aids which can make their daily routines much easier. Our sensory products were particularly well received, and several NHS professionals were very interested in our adapted cutlery for children and adults.”

We’re thrilled that Bruce and Steve enjoyed a productive day and many thanks must go to Disabled Living and the Royal Highland Centre for organising and hosting the event. We hope to see you again soon!
