The Care Show is the biggest trade event for the UK care sector. On 25th and 26th March, this year’s exhibition will land at the BIC in Bournemouth. Here, Tomorrow’s Care gives you a sneak peek of the show.

The Care Show 2015 Preview

Taking place over two days, the Care Show 2015 will bring together the key industry stakeholders who are working to deliver the very best care services to older people. The show aims to provide education and training to attendees, as well as a platform for suppliers to showcase their latest products and services.

Talk The Talk In 2014, as part of the Care Show’s ‘You Talked, We Listened’ campaign, delegates were asked to identify the main issues that threaten the sector’s growth and development. Over 350 care professionals took the survey, including managing directors, care home managers and nurses. The five key challenges that emerged from the questionnaire were:

• Recruitment • Budget cuts and external funding • Staff training and retention • Occupancy levels • CQC regulation and the care bill

This year’s programme of events has been tailored to encompass all of these topics as a priority. Two seminar theatres – The Windsor and The Solent – will host a series of presentations by industry experts on

these key business issues. In addition, visitors can gain insight into areas like health and safety, managing medicines and infection control.

Another important stream on the seminar programme will be dementia. With estimates suggesting that there will be 1 million people with dementia in the UK by 2025, it is crucial that care staff of all levels and backgrounds stay up-to-date on the latest information available about the condition. Expert speakers will cover issues ranging from dementia- friendly design and dementia and physical activity, to best practice for dementia care in the community.

All of the seminars on offer at the Care Show 2015 will be free to attend, so every delegate will have access to the wealth of information and expertise on offer. The full seminar programme will be available online and in the official Care Show 2015 show guide, which will be handed out at the event.


“We’ve seen some outstanding people who clearly are here for a purpose. By actually enabling people to see and feel the products, in a number of cases we’ve achieved in 30 minutes what could have taken months had we not attended.”

Stephen Maley, HEWI UK

“It’s been a really good show and we’ve seen a good mix of existing and potentially new customers, especially care home directors – and the new business leads included one visitor who is in charge of 20 homes.”

Carl Jonas, Standex Systems
