BHTA invites industry to reconnect this June at the British Healthcare Trade Show in Leeds

*** For immediate release ***

[June, 2021. London, UK] On 15 June 2021, the British Healthcare Trade Show (BHTS) will take place, reconnecting trade professionals in the mobility, access, and independent living sectors to discover new products, trade partners and opportunities.

The event, hosted in association with the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA), THIIS Magazine and Promoting Independence, will be held at the Weetwood Hall Estate and Conference Centre in Leeds and will be the industry’s only dedicated B2B trade show.

22 leading mobility, access and independent living suppliers will welcome hundreds of retailers and installers as the industry comes back together after a prolonged period of COVID-19 disruption.

Sponsored by Motion Healthcare, the one-day show will provide a relaxed, COVID-secure space where industry retailers, installers and distributors can meet to network and talk business after 15 months of disruption.

It comes as the nation prepares for the continued lifting of lockdown restrictions, fuelled by the successful vaccine rollout. As part of the government’s roadmap, conference centres and exhibition halls, including for business events, have been able to resume since May 2021.

The free-to-attend event will also include seminars from leading experts in social media, pay-per-click advertising, public relations and more, providing tailored advice to help business leaders grow their businesses.

Calvin Barnett, Head of Marketing and Communications for the British Healthcare Trades Association, commented:

“After what has been a difficult 15 months for many businesses in the industry, we are delighted to have the opportunity to bring people back together to look ahead to the future.

“Feedback we have received from exhibitors and those who have registered already has been fantastic; professionals in the industry are keen to come back together and talk business.

“The British Healthcare Trade Show will provide the perfect platform for buyers to find new products and new opportunities, helping ensure they can make the most of the summer recovery. We have also introduced a comprehensive range of COVID-19 measures to ensure all visitors can interact comfortably and safely.

“Due to capacity restrictions, we would recommend that all trade professionals interested in meeting a range of leading suppliers and seeing several new products should book their tickets as soon as possible, to avoid disappointment.”
