One Week to go Until ITEC 2017



October 9, 2017 8:38 am

Just a week to go until this year’s International Technology Enabled Conference in Birmingham on 16/17 October.

As well as our main stage activities  over two days we have a number of breakout sessions that support our overall theme of ‘Putting People First’.

You can follow the conference build up on Twitter at #iTECconf17 and we will be running a second live discussion on 11 October between 2pm and 8pm.

Our first live Twitter discussion was trending at number one on the Health Hashtags website on 4 October as we previewed the conference.

There will be plenty of activity in our exhibition area with over 55 stands and four interactive zones.

We have already featured The App Zone and The Digital Citizen Zone in our recent news update.

There is also:

The Innovation Stage

This stage is located in the exhibition hall and will showcase a number of short presentations including (on 16 October):

  • The digital difference: how Connected Healthcare can revolutionise health and care – David McKinney, Managing Director UK & Ireland, Tunstall Healthcare

Networking and Collaboration Zone

The Networking and Collaboration Zone (supported by CSL) will be available for delegates to use over the two days of conference and due to its central location, within the exhibition hall, delegates will be able to use the zone whilst still feeling connected to the exhibition and the conference.

The CSL Networking and Collaboration Zone will feature:

  • Charging stations for phones, tablets and laptops
  • Comfortable seating areas for working, small meetings or networking
  • Refreshments including tea, coffee and water
  • Wi-Fi
