Huddersfield people suffering from the degenerative condition, multiple sclerosis, are invited to the first UK convention and exhibition.
The event, on October 24 and 25, at the International Conference Centre in Birmingham, is being staged by the MS Society as part of its 50th anniversary programme.
Mike O'Donovan, chief executive, said: "This will be by far the largest and most comprehensive MS event of its kind ever staged in the country.
"We want to give people a one-stop opportunity to meet the experts and see for themselves a wide range of services and products to help enhance their quality of life."
Visitors will be able to speak informally to MS researchers and seek advice from specialists in services ranging from mobility and insurance to yoga and holidays. More than 50 exhibitors will be taking part.
Nine leading UK scientists and clinicians will present the latest developments in research on the first day of the event.
The second day will focus on aspects of living with MS such as managing the condition, relationships, employment, benefits, physiotherapy, complementary medicine and carers.
The number of places is limited. Call 020 8438 0822.
