Naidex, has restricted entry to its opening day on April 26 to just trade and healthcare professionals.
The independent living and assistive technology show runs from April 26-28 at Birmingham NEC, and professionals from the care homes sector will be among the executives encouraged to visit on the first day.
Around 200 exhibitors will be displaying the latest innovations in moving and handling, wheelchairs, bathrooms, access and adaptation, furniture, cars and transport, scooters and walking aids and communication technology.
Portfolio Director, Alison Willis said that the trade and healthcare professionals’ day was created in response to demand from exhibitors and visitors. “We are delighted to announce this significant change to the show which has as much history as Naidex. After 42 years we feel that we need to ensure we are offering the best possible networking opportunities for all our audience groups and exhibitors. This development provides a much improved platform for our Trade and Healthcare Professionals in order to fulfil their needs,” she explained.
Also new in 2016 is a mobility test track inside the exhibition where visitors will have the chance to test wheelchairs and mobility scooters.
