The first live Home Care Expo will take place in Birmingham this year, organisers have announced.
After a successful virtual event earlier this year and demand from the wider home care community, the Home Care Expo will run as a live event on September 15-16 at the NEC, alongside the Dementia, Care and Nursing Home Expo.
The event was due to take place in March 2020, but was postponed due to the pandemic.
Bradley Maule-ffinch, group managing director of ROAR B2B commented: “I’m so excited for us to finally get out there and bring Home Care Expo into the real world. We had such a great response from everybody involved in the digital event and we can’t wait to bring everyone together in person. When it comes to networking and learning opportunities, nothing quite beats meeting face to face. After the many hardships the care sector endured over the last year, it’ll be great for everyone to get together and start mapping out our path to a better future.”
At the heart of the event, there will be a seminar programme that will give care sector professionals the opportunity to gain educational insights from industry thought-leaders and innovators. From CEOs making informed predictions about the future of care, all the way through to frontline care workers who are finding new and exciting ways to provide a higher quality of care.
The Home Care Expo will also host Training 2 Care’s Virtual Dementia Tour. Using cutting edge technology, this gives visitors the opportunity to experience the world in the same way that a person living with dementia experiences the world. The perspectives that this technology provides can help to drive understanding, prompt new ideas and ultimately help carers to provide the best possible outcomes for people with dementia.
Additionally, Home Care Expo will be hosting a series of masterclasses in partnership with everyLife Technologies. These classes will be hosted by keynote speakers with expertise drawn from every aspect of the care sector. The purpose of these classes is to entertain, educate and inspire.
In association with National Activity Providers Association (NAPA), ROAR B2B will also be hosting a new Activities Arena. This will involve live activity demonstrations from experienced care sector activity providers, helping to give useful new ideas to those managing activities within care homes and helping them to ensure that they are consistent with CQC inspection guidelines.
The event is free to all visitors and our speakers are CPD accredited, providing a free opportunity to gain CPD points.
