What is the future hospital show?
The future hospital show explores how healthcare spaces are evolving to keep up with the changing healthcare needs of populations. In this show we will dive into the digital solutions that address patients’ experience in hospitals and how medical services are provided, adapting to the ever-changing medical needs of patients, and improving the state of resources and infrastructure in hospitals to maintain a satisfied and engaged team of medical practitioners.
The Future Hospital show will highlight and champion innovative technologies, and enable wider collaboration among experts and technology innovators to improve patient care and achieve better outcomes at lower cost.
Our goal is to bring together procurement, patients, vendors, and administrators to have conversations and inspire solutions and partnerships that could help with evolving the current healthcare landscape to where it needs to be.

Virtual Reality Training in Medicine and Surgery
Come learn from the UK and Europe's leading experts. Virtual reality (VR) is an emerging technology that can teach surgeons new procedures and can determine their level of competence before they operate on patients. Also VR allows the trainee to return to the same procedure or task several times later as a refresher course.
Who should attend in 2023?
Most people would be stakeholders in the industry of medical provision and hospitals. If you are a medical practitioner who has a clear vision of how things can be done better both for practitioners and patients, an administrator who can see where current processes fall short, or a patient who has firsthand insight of how medical service provision looks like and how it can cater better to their needs, this show is for you.
Digital healthcare and medical supply vendors can help inject the discussions with innovative and efficient solutions to the challenges that are shared and can collaborate and partner up with medical providers who can benefit from their products.
GIANT Health 2023, providing expert speakers, delivers a full 8 hours of CPD accredited education.
This is the UK’s leading MUST ATTEND event for everyone involved in innovation and providing healthcare services in hospitals.
The future hospitals track will provide a platform for discussions and collaborations around how hospitals should adapt and improve to better serve their purpose as a medical facility. These conversations need insights and inputs from patients, providers, vendors and administrators alike, and everyone can add value by attending these tracks and partaking in the process of envisioning the future of our hospitals.
Our goal is to connect all stakeholders with each other and see partnerships and collaborations flourish between providers, vendors, and anyone that provide a solution to any of the current challenges that hospitals are facing.
We work with the world’s largest brands in healthcare technology, hardware, software, Pharma, and more, to provide impactful, direct engagement with leading health-tech innovators and healthcare providers.
