2015 Top Public Event Winners


This year’s winner is Los Angeles Abilities Expo 2015, produced by 5NET4 Productions, LLC. Abilities Expo connects the disability community to live and online resources that promote greater independence. The event brings necessary products and services together under one roof for the community of people with disabilities, their families, caregivers, seniors and healthcare professionals. Every event features new technologies, new possibilities, new solutions and new life-changing opportunities.

Because Abilities Expo services a uniquely diverse attendee base, show management engages in a very hands-on approach to create a unique experience for its attendees and meet their individual needs. Customer service initiatives include: American Sign Language Interpretation, Braille and Large Print Accommodations, CART Services for Workshops, Loaner Scooters, Personal Care Service Attendants, Power Chair Charging Station, Service Dog Relief Area and Wheelchair Repair.

Abilities Expo’s event promotion strategies include a wide range of activities via the following marketing channels: digital media, direct mail, email, special promotional events, online advertising, press releases, newspapers, magazines, billboards, directories, fliers, public relations campaigns, radio, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, telemarketing and television. This year, the company purchased a new, more all-encompassing URL for the organization: This action was the direct result of their continuing efforts to reach out to the entire disability community, connecting people to the products, services, information and resources that they need to enhance their lives. The site has all of the show information that people have come to depend on, and is searchable so that visitors can more effectively target the information they are seeking. It also features an editorial side chock full of news, product information and resources available to the community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from any location. The site offers a network of bloggers and experts to keep the content fresh.
