Care Sector Announces Major South West Industry Event
The West Country’s first care sector innovation show in a decade will be launched in Devon this year.
The Innovative Care Exhibition 2019 will showcase many of the hundreds of fast-emerging technologies now available across the sector, from computerised care management systems to apps and robots.
Launched by the Care Network Group, the event is being held at Westpoint, near Exeter, on Wednesday March 13, and will be a chance for South West care organisations to discover and discuss technological aids and solutions for their organisation, as well as forge new business relations with suppliers and other potential partners.
Launched by the Devon-based Care Network Group, the initiative is part of their work to raise the profile and improve support and shared learning across the region’s care sector.
Co-founder Kat Green said:
“With the South West having one of the country’s largest older populations, it’s vital that our care sector is at the forefront of innovation. The Innovative Care Exhibition is designed to help achieve that. With over 100 exhibitors expected, it will give local care providers a fantastic opportunity to learn first-hand about some of the technology-backed approaches starting to transform the sector.
“It’s great to be bringing national and regional players together. Care managers and providers, business owners and suppliers will be able to connect, learn from each other and see the latest developments and technologies that could be relevant to their business.”
There will be a range of talks at the show from key figures including Bridgett Warr, CEO of the United Kingdom Homecare Association, Nadra Ahmed OBE, Chairman of the National Care Association and Neil Eastwood, author of ‘Saving Social Care’. A programme of workshops and demonstrations from the likes of everyLife Technology, Smooth Digital and Plymouth University, will also be running.
The Innovative Care Exhibition is on Wednesday March 13, 2019 at Westpoint in Exeter, from 9.30-4.30pm. Tickets for the event are free but need to be booked at www.careexhibition.co.uk. The event has some remaining exhibitor opportunities, with discounts available for small business owners and start-ups
