Dates: April 25-27, 2016
IFC is a sponsor of Healthcare Business International 2016, a big private healthcare conference taking place in London this year on April 25-27, and I thought I’d share with you some information about why you should join us at the conference.
Now in its sixth year, the event brings together the CEOs of private health and care operators from Europe and Emerging Markets, as well as many investors. In 2016, the organisers expect 400 plus delegates, making this one of the biggest events focused on health care services worldwide.
The speakers are mainly the CEOs of big hospital, laboratory, elderly care and outpatient groups. They will be discussing business models, markets and how consumers and patients are changing. In the morning, there are sub-sector streams so you can focus on your area of interest. In the afternoon, there are sessions on brands, quality, telehealth, ehealth, etc. We’ve attended before, and found the quality really high and the networking good. Please click here to see the agenda.
There are three reasons why you should consider attending:
1) Meet the money This is a great place to meet potential investors. in 2015 over 80 investor delegates attended, including private equity, US property investors and big institutions. Almost all the big investment banks also attend.
2) Understand how the sector is changing The event gives you a chance to look at the business internationally which is important consolidation is increasing. It also enables you to compare markets.
3) New ideas for your business Many of the presentations focus on business models and best practice, enabling you to come away with a lot of valuable ideas you can implement in your business.
Perhaps the best way of seeing what it offers is to take a quick look at these short videos from other operator CEOs in which they explain why they come back year after year.
