The National Federation of the Blind of Virginia prides itself on bridging the gaps between the blind community and the companies and vendors that manufacture the tools we use to live the life we want. At the 2015 NFBV Exhibit Hall on Friday, October 30, you have the opportunity to meet a variety of vendors and exhibitors that produce the tools our community uses, meet the representatives of different training and independent living centers, and even purchase some items that you may need in the future.
Our sponsors are:
- Torres Foundation for the Blind: a company that provides
assistive technology to consumers;
- G-Technology: A manufacturing company that will be demonstrating
Sonar glasses for consumers; and
- Adaptify Solutions: Formerly the White Cane and More/Beyond Specs
companies that sell canes, assistive technology, and low vision equipment
These sponsors will be available for the attendees to purchase items from, learn more information about, and retrieve knowledge of new, innovative products that are on the horizon.
