With the economic value of the adult social care sector in England currently worth an estimated £43 billion and supporting a total of 2.8 million full time jobs, Care Show Bournemouth (www.careshow.co.uk/bournemouth), is a one stop forum for those involved in care today.
Taking place at the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) on 25 and 26 March, Care show is an event that will feature pioneering speakers alongside a range of cutting edge products and services for those involved in the care of older people today. Visitors include residential nursing and care home owners and managers; homecare providers; hospital, NHS and Foundation Trust staff; GPs; local authorities and social service providers plus care facility construction companies.
Care Show Bournemouth will feature a high profile discussion featuring local MPs who will discuss their commitment and proposed plans for local care during ‘The Big Political Debate – The Political Parties share their Vision for Care’. The debate takes place at 4pm on March 25th and care providers as well as visitors are invited to not only attend, but also actively participate and contribute to the shared vision for care that organisers are championing.
Two corresponding seminar theatres – The Solent Theatre and The Windsor Theatre – will feature panel discussions and presentations including ‘Understanding and marketing to the self funder – the secrets to success’ (one of the most popular seminars at Care Show Birmingham in November) plus ‘Managing medicines’, ‘Occupancy strategies: Maintaining, increasing & managing occupancy’ and ‘Funding strategies: Coping with budget cuts’ – subjects all increasingly requested by visitors to Care Shows Birmingham and Bournemouth.
James Samuel, The Care Show’s Event Director comments:
“With the subject of care continuing to feature high on news agendas, we are delighted to be able to introduce further innovative care solutions and inspiration to Care Show Bournemouth again in 2015. We are delighted to be working with Nadra Ahmed of the National Care Association in facilitating our topical Big Debate and look forward to welcoming many visitors to share their views with local MPs.”
