In the light of recent events surrounding the Coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19), we have decided to postpone the EBME Expo until Autumn 2020. The health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors and workforce is our number one priority, therefore driving our decision to postpone the event from April 29 – 30th to September 3rd - 4th 2020.
The EBME (Electronic and Biomedical Engineering) conference and exhibition began in 2009 as a way of improving healthcare through the sharing and application of knowledge from experienced professionals involved in the management of healthcare technology. This annual event has grown year on year, with the independent exhibition selling out for the past five years running. Delegates' Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities have also expanded to include technical demonstrations and workshops.
Dr. John Sandham will once again be chairing the EBME Expo in 2020, which takes place on 29th & 30th April 2020. The organising committee have chosen to return to The Milton Keynes Marshall Arena, which proved very popular in 2019 with both delegates and exhibitors and has ample space to guarantee a valuable experience.
The EBME Expo is the largest gathering of EBME managers, healthcare technologists and clinical scientists within the UK. These stakeholders are key personnel in the decision making process for medical and laboratory equipment within both the NHS and private healthcare sector.
EBME Expo 2020 features a conference and exhibition with renowned and distinguished speakers in the conference hall and more than 80 internationally respected companies in the exhibition hall, showcasing the latest technologies and equipment that the medical industry has to offer.
