CloserStill Media have taken over the annual Care Show at Birmingham’s NEC.
The show which has been run by UBM now comes under the control of the company that operates 15 trade shows and conferences in the medical and healthcare sector, including Health+Care, Acute & General Medicine and Best Practice.
Care England welcomed the news and said it was good news for the future of the show: “The Care Show traditionally provides a great opportunity to meet care providers, network with product and service suppliers and learn more about the latest sector trends. Care England now looks forward to an even stronger event in the years to come,” commented Professor Martin Green (left), chief executive of Care England.
Nadra Ahmed, executive chairman of the National Care Association says: “It is good news that the two shows have been brought together under one umbrella. The shows have been a great opportunity for providers to meet suppliers and attend seminars under one roof. We look forward to continuing to support the Show and help it grow.”
CloserStill director Michael Westcott commented: “We understand the dynamics of the care sector and especially the challenges it faces. We are honoured and excited to be given the opportunity to apply the experience and expertise of our large and passionate healthcare team to maintain the Care Show’s leadership position in the sector. We are working with the existing Care Show team to explore new and innovative ways to foster even closer relationships between the trade and the show’s audiences.
“We are committed to investing in the Care Show at the NEC in Birmingham to ensure the show remains a relevant and important resource for learning, networking and trading for operators, providers and local authorities who have come to rely on the show to help them navigate the challenges confronting the care sector.”
