About the World Congress & Exposition on Disabilities

The World Congress & Exposition on Disabilities (WCD), a precedent-setting international conference and trade show, is now in its seventh year at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia November 17-19, 2006. The WCD is intended to educate, inform and provide a useful exchange of ideas for people with disabilities and special healthcare needs and those involved in their care and development. Opinion leaders in medicine, education, research, technology, and product development will gather along with caregivers and families for an intensive learning experience focused on the needs of all people with disabilities. Uniting professional and consumer interests within one conference is a logical extension of the current healthcare climate. The WCD was first launched by H.A. Bruno, LLC in November of 2000. In September of 2003, WCD Expo, Inc. was formed by a group of employees of H.A. Bruno, LLC, and they have continued to "Make A Difference" in the disability community.
