British Healthcare Trade Show remains committed to bringing industry together as show postponed until April 2021
Following the disappointing news that the British Healthcare Trade Show (BHTS) has had to be postponed due to the third COVID-19 lockdown, the organisers are excited to announce that the event has been rescheduled to take place in April 2021.
Delivered in partnership with THIIS Magazine, Promoting Independence and the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA), BHTS aims to bring members of the mobility, access and assistive technology sector together after 12 months of business disruption.
Held over one day, BHTS will provide a trade-exclusive space where industry retailers, installers and distributors can freely meet to network and talk business with suppliers and manufacturers in a safe, relaxed and secure environment.
Originally set to take place in early February, the show was required to be rescheduled following the government’s announcement of a third national lockdown on 4 January 2021.
Determined to ensure the show takes place in the spring, BHTS will now be held on 22 April 2021 at the same venue as before: Weetwood Hall Estate, Leeds
The event will act as the ideal launchpad for companies to showcase products to trade buyers just ahead of the busy summer period.
With the government committing to vaccinate the top four priority groups by 15 February 2021, the industry should see a significant number of its key consumer demographics vaccinated ahead of the warmer months.
The show’s principal sponsor Motion Healthcare, a specialist in innovative powered mobility products, welcomed the postponement announcement.
Tim Mills, Head of Business for Motion Healthcare, commented: “This is wonderful news and we are glad to hear that the show has been rescheduled to still take place in the spring.
“After a significantly disrupted winter, making the most of the approaching summer months will be absolutely essential for the industry. BHTS will play a vital role in helping to kick-start that recovery so Motion remains fully committed to continuing to support the show.
“We are excited to see all of our industry peers at the show and look forward to having much-missed face-to-face meetings with customers, new and old.”
