For Immediate Release
Special Needs Group® / Special Needs at Sea® Continue Efforts to Provide Awareness for Special Needs Travel at National Federation of the Blind Annual Convention in Orlando, Fla.
Special Needs Group President & CEO Andrew J. Garnett to Speak at Convention on July 3
Fort Lauderdale, Fla. — July 1, 2014 — While the core mission of Special Needs Group® (SNG), www.specialneedsgroup.com, is to make travel a more viable, enjoyable, accessible experience for persons with special needs, just as vital to the company’s success is to reach out to educate, facilitate and work with the public and travel community to raise awareness of special needs travel.
Reflecting this dedication, SNG President & CEO Andrew J. Garnett consistently speaks to various groups. On Thursday, July 3, Garnett will speak about special needs travel at the National Federation of the Blind (NFB) Annual Convention in Orlando, Fla. Joining him to speak will be Cheryl Echevarria, SNG travel partner; and a representative of Norwegian Cruise Line. The largest organization of blind and low-vision people in the U.S., the NFB raises the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and their dreams.
At the convention, Garnett will emphasize how it is possible for blind and low-vision individuals to realize their travel dreams and see the world.
In addition, SNG will have a booth at the 2014 Center for Independent Living (CIL) Broward ADA Expo on July 12 and 13 at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. At the Expo, which showcases the talent of people with disabilities with activities including yoga, Zumba®, an interactive wheelchair basketball clinic and fashion show, SNG will demonstrate how travel is possible for anyone with a special need.
Special Needs Group, Inc. is the leading global provider of wheelchair rentals, scooter rentals, oxygen rentals and other special needs equipment rentals.
“Many people don’t realize that even though they have a special need, it is possible for them to enjoy traveling and vacationing,” said Garnett. “At SNG, we have the knowledge about how individuals with special needs can reach their travel goals. We are very pleased to share this information with as many people and organizations as possible.”
