We had a brilliant time exhibiting at the Care Roadshow London and Care England Conference but before we delve into our experiences at those events we just want to briefly reminisce on all of the events of this year.
2016 has been a great year for us regarding events; starting with James’ attendance at the ‘National Arts & Health Conference’ organised by Aesop on February 5th, which was a real eye opener for us in how diverse the arts and health space was. However most of the events we’ve attended this year we’ve also participated such as the ‘Celebrating the Arts in Care Homes Conference’ on May 24th organised by Care England, where James delivered a presentation on Creative Minds in front of around 200 care workers, care managers and Directors.
Then we were invited by Richmond Council to participate in the Full of Life Fair 2016, which attracts nearly 1500 over 55’s ever year. We were blown away by both the popularity of the event and its fantastic organisation by the Richmond Borough Council. Plenty of volunteers were on hand to guide, advise and support people during the event.
On November 15th and 16th we attended and exhibited at the Care Roadshow London held at Epsom Downs Racecourse and the Care England Conference held at Church House in Westminster.
The Care Roadshow London event was attended by James, Sarah and Hanna who had a great day speaking to care providers, home care providers, local authorities and other organisations about our wonderful service. The stand was so busy at times they had people waiting to speak to them to find out more about Creative Minds. A fantastic experience and as a result we’ve already booked our space at the Care Roadshow Birmingham in July 2017!
Held at the Church House in Westminster the Care England Conference is thee must attend event for Directors and key decision makers of care providers and learning disability services in the care sector. James and Sarah attended and exhibited at the event and they very quickly had people approaching the stand to see what Creative Minds was all about. Another fantastic event for us and we’ll definitely be attending next year!
We hope to attend even more Arts & Health and Care Sector related events in 2017, we’ll keep you posted! ?
