The Expo is an annual event for women of all ages (18-65+) by providing a range of products, services and topics for discussion, all in one central space. This is truly a unique event aimed at drawing women together to celebrate womanhood, empower, learn and share and really experience what is cutting edge for today.

The Women’s Lifestyle Expo began when a group of women had a vision of creating an event that brought together women and businesses on the Sunshine Coast. The Women’s Lifestyle Expo’s mission is to facilitate an environment where women of all ages, cultures, and backgrounds can connect, gain knowledge and become empowered.

And this year for the first time, it’s not just all about the ladies. They’re opening up our exhibits to include a Big Boys category including Men’s Health, Men’s Clothing and even Big Boy Toys.

Researching and finding everything you need to support a family member with a disability can be difficult and time-consuming. Sharon Fulwood is a mother of three children, two of whom have different disabilities. At every step of her children’s development, she has needed to research disability aids and equipment, specialty products, specialist advice and appropriate support networks for her and her children. Experiencing frustrations and a disconnect in the sector motivated Sharon to do something to help others. She has made it her mission to make it easier for Sunshine Coast families, carers and people with disabilities to find the support, services and products to help them improve their quality of life. She wanted to create an event to connect businesses and networks within the disability sector together with these families and carers. This is how the Disability Expo Sunshine Coast idea was born and has now become a reality.
