The first Seniors Expo was created by COTA NT in 2015 with a vision of creating an accessible, open “one-stop” community event specifically for seniors – where stakeholders can meet with service providers, businesses and community groups focusing on seniors’ issues, concerns and lifestyle.
Lord Mayor of Darwin, Katrina Fong Lim described Seniors EXPO as a “very special community event”. The first Seniors EXPO in 2015 won the Australia Day Award for Community Event of the Year award. Seniors Expo continues to grow.
In 2019, 98 exhibitors – service providers, businesses, seniors clubs, community groups helped create yet another unique and very special community event attended by 2 000 people.
The event is supported by sponsors, grant-funding, Club and Associate Members, stakeholders and an army of volunteers – without them, Seniors Expos would not be possible.

These images capture the celebratory and positive atmosphere generated at Seniors EXPO by its very special attendees. We hope you enjoy these memories as much as we enjoyed creating them with you.
Every year, it looks a little different, but the core concepts of COTA NT’s Seniors Expos remain consistent.
SENIORS EXPO = community + connections + conversations + celebration.
