The organiser of leading care show the Dementia, Care & Nursing Home Expo (17th-18th March 2020, NEC Birmingham), has been closely monitoring updates on the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus.
They commented, “Like many large event organisers, the health and safety of our visitors, exhibitors and staff is always our number one priority. This is particularly pertinent in the care and health sector communities that the Dementia, Care & Nursing Home Expo brings together.
“Many of our visitors are, or are on the frontline of supporting, the most vulnerable in society. This combined with the fact that health and social care workers will be critical to ongoing containment and management strategies, means that we have taken the decision to reschedule Dementia, Care & Nursing Home Expo to later in the year and will confirm this date by Monday 16th March 2020. This will include all events co-located with the Dementia, Care & Nursing Home Expo including Home Care Expo, European Neuro Convention, Naidex, Smart Home for Assisted Living, Care Tech Live, Medical Imaging Convention, Oncology Convention and AI&ML Convention.
“While this is not a decision that has been taken lightly, we feel that it is the right one – not just for the care and health sector but for the wider community as a whole. We are of course, in ongoing communication with our exhibitors, speakers, partners and suppliers. Those we have managed to speak to thus far have been exceptionally understanding. If you are affected and the team hasn’t managed to reach you yet, please know that we will be in touch very shortly. Alternatively please contact the Event team directly at Enquiries@ROARB2B.com or +44 (0) 117 990 2093.
“Thank you for your understanding and support and we look forward to welcoming you later in the year.”
