EHI Live has been acquire by CloserStill and will be integrated into the organisers healthcare portfolio as part of the Digital Healthcare Show, which itself is part of the Health+Care series which will run at ExCeL London on 26-27 June 2019.
The Health+Care events – The Digital Healthcare Show, The Healthcare Show, and The Residential and Home Care Show – are already the largest gathering of health and care professionals across the whole of Europe. With the two digital events joining forces, this means that The Digital Healthcare Show will now also be the largest digital healthcare transformation event.
The events are an important two days in the UK for the health and social care sectors, bringing together ideas and solutions to more than 10,000 local leaders, across all three Health+Care events, tasked with delivering sustainable change across the UK health and care systems.
CloserStill Media is already committed to supporting the digital healthcare community; The Digital Healthcare Show is the only event to win an award in the same category at both The Exhibition News Awards and The AEO Awards.
“This marks an incredibly important and exciting moment for digital health in the UK and we are delighted to have the opportunity to offer a renewed and fresh focus to EHI Live,” commented event manager Lee Davies. “Sustainable digital progression and integration is becoming front and centre of all strategic plans across healthcare, but resource is not often matched with workload, and The Digital Healthcare Show team know how hard everyone is working.”
The blending of the two events has already seen the likes of The British Computing Society join the fold as official partner of The Digital Healthcare Show, along with NHS England and NHS Digital. It also means that experts in their fields who want to share knowledge, and innovators with tech solutions, now don’t have to choose between one show or another when they have limited time, resource and budget.
A formal manifesto for the merging of the two events will be released in the coming weeks.
