Variety increases for the newly branded Care & Dementia Show
Organisers of the newly branded Care & Dementia Show – formerly known as Care Show, Birmingham – taking place 3 – 4 November in partnership with the International Dementia Conference are assembling an increasing number and variety of companies providing a solution for those affected by dementia today.
Because over 1 million people in the UK and 75 million people worldwide are predicted to have dementia by 2030, suppliers will attend Care & Dementia Show to target decision-makers from a wide number of sectors that have dementia firmly in their focus: the care industry, housing providers and associations, specialists in technology, planning and design, local authorities, GPs, CCGs and NHS professionals including occupational therapists and nurses and many more.
Chris Edwards, Event Director for UBM’s Care & Dementia Show comments: “The range of new exhibitors taking part in this year’s show is striking. From technology, health and safety, uniforms and utilities through to bathing, furniture and professional services, there will be a wealth of choice for all involved in addressing the needs of those affected by dementia at this year’s Care & Dementia Show.”
With the annual cost of dementia care in the UK alone estimated at £26 billion, the International Dementia Conference – a feature of their 25th anniversary celebratory Dementia Festival of Ideas in 2015 – will profile international experts highlighting success stories that are helping those affected by dementia across the world today. They include teleconferencing (from India), perceived best practices of what works for relatives (from Spain) as well as a preview of the impending American Strategy for Dementia.
Mr. Edwards continued: “This year’s event will introduce an ‘Start-up Academy’ for newly launched products to be judged by the event audience – one overall winner will be offered a free stand within this zone at the show. We will also introduce three dedicated Innovation Tours to focus on Interior Design, Technology and also Assisted Living exclusively for conference delegate participants.”
