I greet you at the opening of the 8th International Specialized Exhibition "InvaExpo. Society for All 2018".
A very important idea is laid in the title: regardless of health limitations, every person should have the opportunity to live a full life - to learn, develop creative abilities, to achieve professional realization, to do sports. And the task of the state, business and society is to create all necessary conditions for this, to help those who face serious every day difficulties.
The exhibition is a vivid example of such an effective interaction. On this unique platform are presented the most successful projects in the development of modern infrastructure for disabled people and are demonstrated the latest technical means of rehabilitation, the best domestic and global developments. It is very important indeed that the suppliers and the manufacturers are open for business contacts with government customers.
In addition to the business program, guests will find a variety of cultural and sporting events. The festival of arts "Parafest" will help to discover talented, creatively gifted people. And the best paralympic athletes of Russia will share their experience in overcoming the most difficult tests at the master classes.
I am confident that the exhibition will make life of disabled people more comfortable and active. After all, their faith in themselves, in their capabilities, largely depends on this.
I wish you fruitful work and all the best.
