Venue: Coventry Building Society Arena, Coventry
Attendance is free for all conference delegates and exhibition visitors.
The Electronic and Biomedical Equipment (EBME) conference and exhibition started in 2009, as a way of improving healthcare through the sharing and application of knowledge from experienced professionals involved in the use, maintenance, and management of healthcare technology. This educational event has grown in numbers of delegates, exhibitors and speakers. It remains a sponsored event, but is independent of any one commercial company.
For our 2022 event, we are excited to announce that we will be moving to the Coventry Building Society Arena (Formerly the Ricoh Arena), Coventry, UK. This larger venue has been chosen so that we can expand to host a second conference focusing on ‘The Operating Theatre’, and to keep up with demand from both exhibitors and delegates. Operating theatre staff are the largest group of medical equipment users in hospitals, and this is why we believe they will complement our current audience.
We are delighted to welcome Rob Brothwood, Senior Operating Department Practitioner at the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital, as the Chairman for the additional conference area, to which we will be welcoming Specialist EBME Technicians, Operating Department Practitioners (ODP’s), Theatre & Recovery Nurses, Anaesthetists, Surgeons, plus others.
John Sandham will continue to Chair the EBME conference hall, and all conference delegates will be able to choose their preferred topics, in either hall.
In addition to the two conference halls, the 2022 EBME Expo will have even more innovative and internationally respected companies in the exhibition hall. There will be a range of both large and smaller exhibition spaces available, to enable all types of companies to come and demonstrate their new products.
The 2022 EBME Expo will be open to delegates for 2 days with the focus being on innovations in medical equipment technology and maintenance on day one, and medical equipment management, procurement, and training on day two. The two-day programme will allow delegates to understand the latest improvements in healthcare technology and management across a range of professional areas and offer numerous opportunities for informal networking.
Our conference programmes (EBME, Operating theatre) will feature fourteen speaker sessions each day, concentrating on understanding how technology can deliver improved patient outcomes at lower costs. Besides this, there will be three workshops each day in the break out areas, and we expect many of our exhibitors to provide technical demonstrations.
The aim of the event is to share knowledge and improve awareness, thereby assisting healthcare organisations to become safer and more efficient.
We have been working with our event partner ‘BtoB events’ to further improve the experience at this new, larger location. Once again, attendance is free for all attendees, our specialist registration company will be back, and refreshments will be available to purchase on site for those who do not have them included.

Each attending conference delegate will receive a certificate for their continuing professional development (CPD) record.
This educational seminar meets CPD requirements for the NHS knowledge and skills framework (KSF).

Situated in the heart of the UK, the Coventry Building Society Arena is a world-class exhibition, event and conference centre based in the vibrant city of Coventry, just a 20-minute drive from Birmingham. This Arena is within a two-hour drive of 75% of the population, and has over 2000 parking spaces.
Not only does the Arena also have its own on-site railway station, but with three train stations within 8 miles, Birmingham International Airport only a 20-minute drive away, and London Euston a 55-minute train ride away, the Arena is an ideal destination.
