We're hosting a stall at Melbourne's CAREX 2011 Expo
On the Wednesday 6 April and Thursday 7 April 2011, Travellers Aid Australia will travel to Caulfield for the 2011 Melbourne CAREX Expo.
This Expo is Australia's premier health and aged care exhibition.

The Victorian Tourism Industry Council (VTIC) quarterly tourism industry forum will be focusing on “The Economics of Inclusive & Accessible Tourism” on 15 June 2011. Jodie Willmer, CEO of Travellers Aid Australia will be presenting alongside other expert speakers.
VTIC hosts quarterly industry forums to allow the broader industry and public to hear from keynote speakers on relevant issues or topics affecting the industry and to have their say during an open discussion session.
Commencing from 6 July 2011, Travellers Aid Australia is participating in a four-week Special Interest Telelink Program with Vision Australia.
The Program - an innovative initiative by Vision Australia which is delivered via teleconference to participating clients - provides regular ongoing social and peer support, special interest and recreation activities for people who are socially isolated or live some distance from a Vision Australia centre.
CEO Jodie Willmer will be presenting at the Tourism & Events Excellence Conference on inclusive and accessible tourism. This is an important topic that will grow in relevance as our ageing and disability populations continue to increase.
All Victorians and visitors to the State are invited to visit Government House, Melbourne on Australia Day 2012. Visitors will be able to view the State Apartments, the Private Apartments and the Governor's Study. Many of these rooms are not normally open to the public
