News story legal challenge

9th March 2020 • Emma Cooper

My Family, Our Needs was due to be exhibiting at Naidex on the 17th and 18th March but have just received news that the event organisers have made the decision to reschedule to later in the year due to coronavirus.

A new date will be confirmed by Monday 16th March.

A statement released by the event organisers says, ‘Like many large event organisers, the health and safety of our visitors, exhibitors and staff is always our number one priority. This is particularly pertinent in the care and health sector communities that Naidex brings together.

Many of our visitors are, or are on the frontline of supporting, the most vulnerable in society. This combined with the fact that health and social care workers will be critical to ongoing containment and management strategies, means that we have taken the decision to reschedule Naidex to later in the year and will confirm this date by Monday 16th March 2020.

This will include all events co-located with Naidex including Smart Home for Assisted Living, Dementia, Care & Nursing Home Expo, Home Care Expo, Care Tech Live, European Neuro Convention, Medical Imaging Convention, European Oncology Convention and AI&ML Convention.

While this is not a decision that has been taken lightly, we feel that it is the right one – not just for the care and health sector but for the wider community as a whole. We are of course, in ongoing communication with our exhibitors, speakers, partners and suppliers. Those we have managed to speak to thus far have been exceptionally understanding.’

My Family, Our Needs looks forward to exhibiting later in the year and meeting all the exhibitors and delegates.

If you were due to attend, keep up to date on all the information on the Naidex website.
