We've just been asked if we would consider having a booth at this years EBME Expo on the 29th April.
Just wondering if anyone goes, or has been, and has any experience they could share ?
The entrance fee for delegates is completely free (excluding any accommodation costs ) and is funded with much higher exhibitor fees ( x3 of ART ) but they have about 1000 NHS delegates (allegedly).
Staff have visited on a number of times and feedback has been excellent. Clearly the exhibition covers a wide range of kit, with no renal on a pervious visit I made. Talks and presentations have been well attended. From the renal tech point of view it's ensuring the subject matter is relevant before attending. Attended a few years ago and exhibition seemed more critical care focussed though plenty of biomedical technicians/managers there so they would have an interest in all areas of equipment
The exhibition plan for this year shows most are the big players in ITU monitoring/pumps etc and other therapies but no renal or chairs so we're going to have a look and have been offered registration FOC on an exhibitors visitor pass and see what footfall there is this year with a view to going next year if it seems worthwhile.
