The three-day expo and summit received overwhelming response from government organisations, non-government organisations (NGOs), companies and general public.

Companies and organisations are taking keen interest in developing smart solutions and the latest technologies to provide a better life for persons of determination.

More than 8,000 people visited the Expo.

The Expo venue was also used to announce the Sanad Village, the world’s first and largest rehabilitation and education centre for People of Determination.

Participating government departments and organisations reiterated their commitment for inclusion of persons of determination into the society for greater participation.

Top officials representing international organisations and government departments in the UAE and experts in tourism and transport participated in the Summit.
