CareExpo 2003 – the best yet

Posted on May 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Visitors, exhibitors and the organisers have voted CareExpo 2003 the best yet. Held at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham on June 26-26, CareExpo filled the three main exhibition halls, with more than 80 separate organisations represented. These covered virtually every aspect of supply to the care sector. Exhibition sales director Peter Wedderburn said he had made a point of speaking to as many visitors as he could over the two days. “They were all genuinely enthusiastic about the show and found the visit well worth the time out from busy schedules,” Mr Wedderburn said. “Our main aim for the future is to build on this active customer base and encourage more care home managers and owners to come along and enjoy the benefits.” As Caring Times went to press, it was too early to have assimilated all the feedback, and the registration team was still cross checking figures, but it seems certain that well over 1500 people attended CareExpo, and that many of them were active buyers.
