ACT Seniors Expo
ACT Seniors Expo
COTA ACT has been delivering the ACT Seniors Expo since the early 1990s.
From humble beginnings at the Ainslie Arts Centre and the Hughes Community Centre Hall with a handful of exhibitors, the ACT Seniors Expo has expanded to include hundreds of exhibitors each year at Exhibition Park in Canberra.
In 2022, COTA ACT presented the ACT Seniors Expo as part of the Silver is Gold Festival – with the Expo being held twice a year for the first time. The 2022 Expos attracted more than 200 exhibitors and more than 6,000 older people.
The ACT Seniors Expo is supported by the ACT Government.
