The Care Show celebrates its inaugural launch in London

The inaugural launch of Care Show London brought a bustling, vibrant atmosphere to the ExCeL London on 24-25 April 2024, and welcomed 3,395 delegates, 195 speakers, and 180 exhibitors through its doors.

 

The event was rebranded as Care Show London following the final run of The Residential and Home Care Show in April 2023. The launch promised to bring all the passion and buzz of Care Show Birmingham to the country’s capital, and with visitors eager for the initial conference sessions, and exhibitors prepped and ready, Care Show London began.

 

The exhibitors showcased a wide array of products and solutions, ranging from innovative technology and care equipment to HR systems, catering, and even therapy animals. Key exhibitors included MOA Benchmarking, Nourish, Sona, Wagada Digital, Christie Finance, 2 Pure Products, Pass, E&R Moffat Catering Equipment, and Birdie.

 

Jake Rose, Healthcare Outcomes Manager at ARJO said: “The Care Show been really good for us. There has been a good range of different customers – from carers who are on the front line dealing with our products, also at a director level of the care homes that we’re interested in and the whole top level of detail.”

 

The conference programme boasted a broad variety of topic areas following this year’s key themes of funding, future workforce, innovation and change management, and sustainability. By bringing together the key thought leaders and experts from across the adult social care sector, delegates received up-to-date research, advice, and best practice from each session. From expert individuals presenting on workforce strategy, diversity, and inclusion, to esteemed panel members discussing international recruitment and the new CQC framework, the conference theatres had it all. Providing both practical guidance and thought-provoking debates, Care Show London was the place to learn from the best.

 

Jade Kent, Senior Associate at Stephens Scown LLP, and a speaker at Care Show London said: “The people within the room are interesting and influential, and the talks cover key topics with high calibre speakers.”

 

Tailored to the needs of the attendees, the show proudly presented a new set of feature areas: Caring Conversations, led by Five on a Bike, sparked discussion and insight into some difficult topics and the Technology Concierge service, offered by Guided Innovation, provided assistance and information to direct individuals to the most suitable software suppliers. The Selfie & Media Zone provided the perfect opportunity for a cheeky team photoshoot with branded signage and a life-size magazine cover to step inside! Other feature areas included Meet the Inspector Hub with CQC, the Quiet Room for relaxation, and of course the Café and seating area.

 

Show Manager, Matthew Moore, said: “I could not have expected the launch of Care Show London to go any better, the feedback we received from exhibitors, attendees, speakers and partners was amazing. Bringing the Care Show buzz to London is something we have only dreamed of before, and seeing it all come together was a dream come true.”

 

Show organisers, CloserStill Media have announced the show will return in 2025, on 30 April to 1 May, at ExCeL London. Attendees can register their interest today.
