Following the success of our major Seniors Expo held in Darwin and Palmerston in 2015, COTA NT staff and volunteers in other regions of the Territory work to create wonderful information days using the same (winning) formula: community + connections + conversations + celebration = EXPO.
All delivered by staff, volunteers, sponsors and supporters/exhibitors in a spirit of community, openness, teamwork and advocacy.
Seniors Expos in Alice Springs are incorporated into Seniors Month activities. In 2019 and 2020, they were smaller events ‘Health and Wellness Days’ which have developed into Expo-style events. The 2022 Expo was a combined indoor event with the Alice Springs Town Council, continuing a partnership starting in 2020.
Seniors Days in Batchelor are run by the COTA Coomalie Branch and incorporated into Seniors Month Activities. Typically, these Days are open to both urban and rural seniors with lunch, entertainment and transport provided.
COTA NT brought its successful Expo formula to Katherine in 2021 with the support of the YMCA and service providers. This relatively new Expo continues to grow and COTA NT intend to runs its 3rd Expo in Katherine during March 2023.
