COTA NT’s Seniors Expos

COTA NT created Seniors Expos to bring people together – to foster community connections, to help conversations happen and to celebrate the contribution that seniors continue to make to the Northern Territory.

The first Seniors Expo focused on an open “one-stop” community event specifically for seniors – where stakeholder smet 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”.
