Naidex Virtual pushed back as it ‘looks to start 2021 off right’
Following the announcement of a new virtual offshoot of the popular Naidex independent living exhibition, event organisers have decided to push Naidex Virtual back to next year as it ‘looks to start 2021 off right’.
Naidex Virtual was launched in place of a physical exhibition earlier this month, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt events and exhibitions nationwide. The virtual initiative aims to provide a series of free online informative sessions, webisodes and product showcases for healthcare professionals, based on the current needs of the independent living and healthcare community.
Additionally, Naidex Virtual will offer CPD-accredited training for healthcare professionals, enable delegates to join a support network and interact with their peers, and allow visitors to voice their concerns to experts.
Initially, event organisers said it would be hosting its first Naidex Virtual webisode in December, but has taken the decision to move it to 3 February 2021.
In a statement about this decision, Naidex organiser Roar B2B Media said: “With a busy couple of months coming up, we want to ensure everyone can attend the webisode without having to juggle around professional commitments. We all know this year has been challenging, so we are looking to start 2021 off right by looking at what we’ve learned and to the future.”
Everyone who has already registered will not need to do so again, Roar B2B Media has reassured.
The first webisode, which will now take place on 3 February 2021, explores the need for accessibility in the home. ‘Room to Improve: Independence in the Home’ will take an in-depth look at housing adaptations, accessibility standards, technology-enabled care (TEC) solutions, and additional support and resources.
