Thank you to all who supported The Pharmacy Show 2021
Reunited after two long years
After taking the decision to postpone The Pharmacy Show 2020 due to the pandemic, The Pharmacy Show 2021 saw the first major get-together for the profession in two years, (and the only one taking place this year). We're thrilled to have reunited so many members of the industry – offering inspiring new content, training courses and helpful resources for improving patient care.
Reflecting on the importance of in-person interaction, Garry Tyson, Event Director for The Pharmacy Show shares the positive feedback received from numerous attendees:
“After 2 years we are finally back – and it has been absolutely amazing. Seeing the smiles and faces of visitors and exhibitors has made this day truly special. It has been a journey to get here and the power of face-to-face is so important for our clients. The feedback I have received has been astonishing”.
Exciting show highlights…
From inspiring speakers to must-see exhibitors, there was an abundance of activities for visitors to get involved in at this year's show. Here are just a few highlights:
240+ industry-leading exhibitors
Finally able to resume networking with customers, building new relationships and showcasing their new products and services – exhibitors experienced two successful days of business and networking, with products covering a broad range of categories – from OTC and automatic dispensing to skincare, pharmacy software, education and training.
160+ inspiring speaker sessions
At this year's show, visitors were able to choose from 125 sessions of high-quality content to earn CPD points and take-home practical, relevant insights to grow their practices, enhance patient care, and so much more.
Session highlights included ‘COVID and Our Future – an outside in view', which saw Seb Hobbs, CEO of Well Pharmacy share his experience of leading the UK's largest independent pharmacy through the pandemic; as well as ‘Inclusive Professional Practice', which included an expert panel discussion on next steps to ensure progress towards equal opportunities for women in pharmacy continues.
Other hot topics of discussion included leadership, career development, national and local representation and the future of pharmacy. RX Advisor also delivered flu jab and COVID-19 vaccination training at the show.
