Annual Conference and Exhibition

6-8 October 2020, online

Annual conference is going virtual this year

We've still got all the unrivalled health content and networking you would expect but now you can join the conference online.

Join us as we explore the health landscape with top speakers from inside and outside the sector.

Our new three day event will be a chance for everyone to come together to share, debate and discover how to shape the sector. Engage with like-mind people and organisations and future proof your board and your business. 

What is a virtual event?

The event will be just like the annual conference you know and value, with live speakers, rooms for interactive debate and coffee breaks to catch up with colleagues – but streamed live to your browser.

So how does it work? You'll be able to drop in and out of the live sessions, explore the virtual expo booths to meet exhibitors and reach out to fellow attendees to connect and network.

We’ll bring the very latest insight, debate, support and information you need as we emerge from the coronavirus crisis. All the top speakers, interactive roundtables and expert case studies you expect – streamed direct to you.

Your conference pass will also allow you to access content for 3 months after the event.
