SPEKIX / Special Kids Expo


Inke Maris & Associates has been appointed as the official PR partner for the Special Kids Expo (SPEKIX) organized by the Indonesian Autism Awareness Association (MPATI) and the Zally Zarras Learning Center (ZZLC). SPEKIX aims to provide comprehensive information about autism and inform the general audience on how to care for children with special needs. The initiative also encourages people to provide equal opportunity for these passionate and talented children capable of producing extraordinary works.

SPEKIX is an annual event and a continuation of the "Autism Friendly Jakarta" program originally initiated on April 6th, 2013, by Joko Widodo when he took office as the Governor of Jakarta.   After 5 years, it was renamed the “Autism Friendly Indonesia Program” in 2019.  The exhibition featured more than 150 booths for tenants across Indonesia and provided information about autism-friendly schools and therapies, while offering a wide selection of healthy food products, handicrafts made by special needs children, exciting activities, and free counseling. It also hosts seminars and workshops featuring expert practitioners from Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and England.
