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, and Seniors Expo has grown from strength to strength. In 2019, the Expo in Darwin attracted 98 exhibitors and 2 000 people.
