Healthcare Estates 2019

Where Innovation, Technology and Leadership Meet
Set to be the biggest event in its history, Healthcare Estates takes place on 8-9 October at Manchester Central, with an expected 240+ exhibitors and over 4,500 attendees. This year sees the event focus on Fund, Design, Build, Manage & Maintain and each day will open with Keynote presentations. NEW for 2019 – Healthcare Estates is hosting the IFHE (Europe), and including content to attract an international delegation.

Healthcare Estates’ visitors and delegates make a conscious decision to attend the event setting aside valuable time to find solutions to the challenges they face on a daily basis and keep up to date with the latest product innovations.

Conference streams and keynote speakers
The annual conference will have four streams – Strategy and Leadership, Engineering and Facilities Management, Planning, Design and Construction, and Innovation. The exhibition and conference also have ‘a new look’, with a Plenary Theatre in the exhibition hall, where the keynote presentations will be given at the start of each day. The keynote sessions are free to attend for delegates, exhibitors, ‘VIPs’, speakers, and apprentices.

This year’s keynote speakers are:

  • 8 October – Simon Corben, director and head of Profession, NHS Estates and Facilities, NHS Improvement, and Alasdair Coates, Engineering Council CEO.
  • 9 October – Professor Michail Kagioglou, Dean of the University of Huddersfield, and Alan Sharp, CEO at the Mater Hospital in Dublin. The ‘motivational speaker’ will be Sally Becker, the ‘Angel of Mostar’ (HEJ – May 2019).
