Naidex is Europe’s most exciting event dedicated to the disability, independent living and healthcare professional sectors. In the wake of the huge success of the most recent installment of this esteemed and long-established event, Naidex will return for its 44th year to the Birmingham NEC on the 25th & 26th April, 2018.
Since taking over this powerhouse event in late 2016, PRYSM Media Group have injected diverse content, expert speakers and more than 20 years of experience in event organisation, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. Attracting thousands of public, trade and healthcare professional visitors, Naidex has regained its momentum and is back on the map as the event for the disability sector.
Bigger and better…
With an increased floor plan, and running directly alongside the brand-new Dementia Care and Nursing Home Expo, there is no limit to the reach of this incredible event. Organisers PRYSM Media Group have forecast a two-fold in the professional presence at next year’s event, due to a highly targeted agenda which is brimming with unmissable content already – 9 months out from the show.
A key feature in the 2018 agenda will be the all new Moving & Handling Lab, which will provide healthcare professionals and carers with two full days of focused, interactive and fully CPD accredited demonstrations. The Lab will provide crucial knowledge, progressive techniques and the expertise needed to effectively and safely support and transport individuals with disabilities or special needs with the least amount of exerted effort, in a way that provides the utmost comfort and dignity, in conjunction with specialist equipment. Whether you work independently, or with others; recognise how to assess the level of risk for both you and your patients, ensuring optimum safety at all times.
Another feature that is sure to be awash with activity is the Home, Design & Build Summit. Bringing together industry leaders and key decision makers in accessible architecture, the most innovative furnishing solutions and stylish interior design for accessible living. The Summit will feature revolutionary seminars and pioneering suppliers that will demonstrate and explore the very latest technologies, ideas and adaptations created to promote and enhance ease, comfort, style and independence in both a home and care environment.
Speakers at Naidex 2018 will include Vic Rayner, Executive Director of the National Care Forum, who will be discussing the use of technology in social care. By taking pre-conceived anxieties surrounding the use of technology, Vic will explore how technology and data will shape the future of social care in all settings.
Designate founder Elaine Hollerhead will deliver a seminar based on designing and adapting properties for the future good. Elaine has extensive experience working as a Senior Occupational Therapist in the NHS and Social Services, and will demonstrate how to create inclusive designs that will enhance both well-being and property values.
World class exhibitors will also fill the hall with live demonstrations and the very latest products, services and technology that is shaping the future of independent living. International organisations will share the floor with revolutionary start-ups, providing a varied and diverse outlook into one of the most progressive sectors in the world.
Naidex will bring together the entire industry under one roof over two exceptional days, to instil inspiration, educate and inspire. Watch this space as the agenda develops into what will be the most unmissable 2 days of the year!
