Trade Sponsorship

Able Australia is honoured to be hosting the 17th Deafblind International World Conference on August 12-16, 2019 at the Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa, 158 Ferny Avenue, Surfers Paradise, Queensland.

Deafblindness is a unique and isolating sensory disability resulting from a combination of both a hearing and vision loss or impairment, which significantly affects communication, socialisation, mobility and daily living.

We are inviting you to become a conference sponsor and take this opportunity to showcase your organization to some 70  international and national guest speakers and 500 delegates from the deafblind community across over 37 countries.

To ensure that you are part of this event, please download the brochure.
