ATSA Independent Living Expos postponed until October 2020

Due to the escalation of COVID-19 and the Federal Government announcing a ban on gatherings of more than 500 people, ATSA has postponed the Perth and Melbourne expos, previously to be held in May, until October 2020. The new dates are Melbourne – October 13-14; and Perth – October 28-29, 2020.


All stand payments will be transferred to the new dates along with registrations and the presentation program.

Given  the exceptional circumstances faced, and in line with the developing government health guidelines around COVID-19, ATSA believes postponing the event is a responsible decision to ensure a health and safe experience for all.

“The Board would like to thank our visitors, members, exhibitors, suppliers and staff for their patience while it worked through this unprecedented and complex situation and apologises for any inconvenience this has caused,” ATSA executive officer, David Sinclair said.


New marketing collateral with revised dates will be sent to all companies shortly. Regular updates will also appear in social media channels and in ATSA and Freedom2Live newsletters.

Sinclair said ATSA has been thrilled with the level of interest and support from the industry, with both exhibitions sold out. “Interest in attending has also been high with 1090 registered for Melbourne and 458 for Perth. Clearly these shows are highly anticipated,” he said.
