Physiotherapy UK is the main dedicated professional annual event supported by HCPC registered UK based Physiotherapy practitioners whose basis forms the fourth largest healthcare sector nationally.
After two years at the ICC in Birmingham, the 2015 event is held at The BT Convention centre in Liverpool King’s Dock arena on the 16th and 17th October. The last two years events have proved popular with sponsors and exhibitors selling out, with a stands sales growth rate of 45% for last years event compared to the 2013 event.
This year sales are already up on last year with enquiries and bookings coming from an increasingly diverse selection of healthcare product manufacturers and service suppliers. There is a marked increase in recruitment agencies targeting the Physiotherapy market building on a record number of exhibiting companies last year.
Technological advances in mobility aids such as Robot-Assisted Physiotherapy (RAP) are providing new and exciting, and increasingly affordable, devices and products to help get people moving again, aiding recovery times from injury or illness, and the benefits of meeting the professional Physiotherapy sector face to face is proving attractive to these manufactures.
The change in legislation allowing senior physiotherapists to prescribe certain medicines such as painkillers and anti-inflammatories has resulted in more enquiries and a few bookings from pharmaceutical laboratories and suppliers wishing to promote products to physiotherapists.
We are looking forward to the 2015 event which is shaping up to be exciting with an increasingly diverse selection of exhibitors and new event sponsors.
