The Care Show celebrates its inaugural launch in London!

The Care Show celebrates its inaugural launch in London!

Originally hosted as The Residential and Home Care Show, this April saw the rebrand and inaugural launch of Care Show London, promising to bring all the passion and buzz of Care Show Birmingham to the country’s capital. Held at ExCeL London on 24-25 April 2024, we welcomed 3,390 delegates, 197 speakers, and 178 exhibitors through our doors. The event commenced with a bustling, vibrant atmosphere sparking enthusiasm across the show floor. With attendees eager to attend the initial conference sessions, and exhibitors prepped and ready, Care Show London began.  

Our 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, Ascom, and Birdie.  

One exhibitor 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.” 

Our 2024 conference programme boasted a broad variety of topic areas following this year’s key themes of funding, future workforce, innovation & 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 and every session. From expert individuals presenting on workforce strategy, diversity, and inclusion, to esteemed panel members discussing international recruitment and the new CQC framework, our theatres had it all. Providing both practical guidance and thought-provoking debates, Care Show London really was the place to learn from the best.  

One speaker 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 our attendees, the show proudly presented a new set of feature areas: Caring Conversations, led by our partner, Five on a Bike, sparked discussion and insight into some difficult topics and our Technology Concierge service, offered by Guided Innovation, provided assistance and information to direct individuals to the most suitable software suppliers. Our 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.  

Overall, the event was a resounding success with two action-packed days spent networking and celebrating everyone in the care sector. The Care Show team would like to extend a massive THANK YOU to everyone that played a part in the show, from the speakers, to the exhibitors, to the delegates – we appreciate you all!
