The Autism Directory LIVE Shows are annual national events in North and South Wales
History of the Shows
The Autism Shows were launched in September 2017 at Cardiff City Stadium. This was a pilot to see if there was a need for such an event, and the feedback from over 1400 visitors confirmed that there certainly was – with 85% of feedback being good or very good.
In 2018 we put on three shows: North Wales (Llandudno), Mid Wales (Aberystwyth) and again in South Wales (Cardiff), and in 2019 we put on the third Cardiff Show. Feedback from over 5000 visitors at all these shows was just as positive.
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: Having had to cancel all our 2020 Shows, and also the Llandudno 2021 Show, our next dates are in Cardiff on 24th Sept 2021, and Llandudno on 13th May 2022. We are paying close attention to the situation and will make decisions based purely on safety for the exhibitors and visitors that attend. Our shows are popular due to the number of exhibitors we showcase and the crowds that turn up, so if this isn’t going to be possible then we will postpone the Shows until it is safe for us to carry on.
The aim of all the Shows is to bring easy and local access to the products and services that support the autism community, together in one place for a day so you can get to see and speak to them face to face.
The Shows are an exhibition of different organisations that serve the autism community which attend to provide their information to you on how they can help. There is also a great line up of seminar speakers, talks and workshops throughout the day on a variety of topics that are important to the autism community.
There are a number of exhibitors offering one-to-one clinics and there will also be a Support Zone where you can meet community organisations providing local support.
There is a Quiet Room, a Carers Corner and an Artists Corner showcasing the talents of adults on the spectrum.
The Shows also provide a great opportunity to meet other individuals, families and professionals that attend.
