The Autism Directory | LIVE

registered charity #1143855


The Autism Directory Live exhibitions are the biggest free autism specific shows in Wales.

Our LIVE shows provide the autism and autistic communities with face to face access to the services, resources and provisions that are there to help them, their families and the professionals that support them. Each show is a full day packed with exhibitors showcasing their products and services, seminars on topics that matter, and the opportunity to meet with other individuals, families and professionals – all to help you get the help you need.

About our shows

Opportunities exist for organisations, support groups, business and all kinds of services to exhibit with generous discounts for the 3rd sector and not-for-profit groups so they can take part. Visitors are able to talk to exhibitors, listen to seminars, attend workshops and can have one-to-one meetings with some of the organisations that can provide that specialist and bespoke support.

What People Say About The Shows

From the very first ever Autism Directory LIVE we’re proud of the fact that visitors and exhibitors alike have found the shows to be a perfect opportunity to engage within the autistic community.

“For me as both an autistic person and a CEO exhibiting at the Cardiff show, it was the best of both worlds.

Meeting so many people that we could talk to and so many companies we could do business with has helped us immensely.”

Raj Chand

“The TAD live show was a fantastic event, excellent venue, huge crowds of interested and welcoming people who really appreciated you being there. Other exhibitors were really great too which added to the buzz in the room. Looking forward to next year’s TAD show and seeing you all again.”

Maplebrook Wills

“We had a brilliant day at TAD Live Cardiff! We met some amazing people and it was a privilege to exhibit and share our company’s passion and focus with so many like-minded individuals.”
