Visitors to last year’s Care Show Bournemouth were enthusiastic in their praise. John Timbs, Managing Director, Lodge Care Group UK said “This is my first visit to the show and aside from viewing lots of interesting products – I’ve also found the education sessions very, very useful and been able to absorb a number of messages from them, including financial/capital allowances best practice. I have attended on both days of the show to fully absorb all information, education and new products.”
Tony Roberts, Head of Supported Housing Services at London’s Wandsworth Council added “I found Care Show Bournemouth invaluable. To be able to listen to and learn from such interesting ‘movers and shakers’ across the seminars on both days was a really great opportunity.”
