Naidex returns in September with CPD seminars for healthcare professionals
ROAR B2B has announced the return of a live Naidex event on the 15th and 16th of September at the Birmingham NEC, its first face-to-face event since 2019.
Naidex caters to three main audiences: people living with health conditions or impairments (and those who care for them), professionals looking to find accessibility solutions, and traders who buy and sell products designed for members of the independent living community.
The event will feature a range of expert speakers from the independent living sector as well as exhibitors who will be showcasing new and innovative products. Throughout the two days, visitors will have access to CPD-accredited seminars, designed to help healthcare professionals provide the highest level of inclusive care.
Paralympic gold medallist Naomi Riches will be among the speakers and will be providing an inspirational talk about her life and career, while also providing an adaptive rowing workshop.
Bradley Maule-ffinch, ROAR B2B Group Managing Director, commented: “We are glad we can finally get back to doing physical events. We know that for our visitors, the networking is a huge part of what we do and it’s been difficult to provide that same sense of comradery in the digital space.
“We’re looking forward to having the independent living community together once again to share their knowledge and expertise, to support one another and to have a good time!”
A popular feature at Naidex is the Mobility Test Track, which gives visitors the opportunity to test drive mobility scooters and wheelchairs on a variety of different terrains to assure themselves of their suitability before purchase.
Naidex’s Accessibility Summit brings together industry leaders and key decisionmakers to discuss accessibility and inclusivity in different aspects of life to educate attendees. Topics include how to make digital platforms more accessible and the UK Government’s housing strategy.
The event also features a Live Sports Arena, which involves multiple sports activities for visitors to try. Additionally, Naidex Trade will bring together mobility manufacturers, retailers and distributors in an exclusively business-based marketplace.
Naidex is co-located with Dementia, Care and Nursing Home Expo, Home Care Expo, Neuro Convention and Smart Home for Assisted Living. These are other ROAR B2B events and provide networking and learning opportunities for professionals working in the care, neurology and smart care technology sectors.
