Abilities Expo and Family Cafe

AMS Vans traveled to Anaheim, CA May 29th through May 31st to attend the Abilities Expo. The Abilities Expo is the biggest event in the US for the disability market and gives AMS the chance to show off our line of wheelchair accessible vehicles. The Expo attracts over 6,500 attendees who come to see new products, learn about advances in technology, and attend special events and seminars. AMS Vans had the opportunity to meet with many new customers (and catch up with some of the existing AMS Vans family!) to show them our new vehicles, and discuss why AMS Vans is different than other wheelchair accessible vehicle companies.

Anaheim was fantastic, and the team (Diana, Kip, Dallas, and Dennis) had a great time meeting new customers and absorbing all of the other interesting products and events. There was even an appearance by Aaron Fotheringham, who is in the Guinness Book of World Records for performing the 1st wheelchair back flip! We’ll be posting video of him on the ramp at the Expo soon, so stay tuned!

The second conference that AMS Vans attended this past weekend (June 5-7th) was the Family Cafe Conference in Orlando, FL, which was held at Disney World. Diana Conte was there to talk with participants and show them the van she brought along from Atlanta. We were really excited to participate for the first year, and although attendance was a bit off, the AMS products were well received. Consumers definitely liked the idea of saving thousands on our vans!

In the end, AMS Vans not only wants to sell our wheelchair accessible vans, but we really want to keep in touch with you – the disability community – and your wants and needs. We’re building a community for you on the internet (here on our blog, Facebook, Twitter, Delicious, etc), so that no matter where you might be, we can still keep in touch. We feel that the community will become a great place to find and share information to make living with a disability easier. We hope that you will become a part of our family, whether you own an AMS van yet or not.

We will keep you updated with our schedule and which shows we will be attending next. Hopefully, we’ll be at the same conference soon.  Our team would love to meet you, and you must experience our amazing vans for yourself!
