Reuniting Therapy professionals – why Therapy Expo is the cornerstone in the therapy calendar

Reuniting Therapy professionals – why Therapy Expo is the cornerstone in the therapy calendar
On the 24-25 November 2021 Therapy Expo welcomed thousands of Therapists from a huge variety of specialisms back to the NEC, Birmingham for the must attend event in the therapy calendar.

It had been two years since the last edition, making it the first major reunion for the therapy community since the pandemic began. Carla Bickerstaffe, Sports Therapist commented that it was “Great to be back at an event, to see and hear live speakers again.” There was a real buzz in the air as Therapy Expo brought together a multitude of different practitioners from Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Sports Therapists, Osteopaths, Sports Massage Therapists, Soft Tissue Therapists, plus many more.

Therapy Expo is a place to educate, inspire, and provides an opportunity to meet other influential professionals across multiple disciplines. The two-day event consists of a comprehensive conference programme to deliver accredited CPD education, 100+ leading therapy suppliers in the exhibition hall and is a place to facilitate important discussions through networking.

This year, the show gathered visitors, exhibitors, and world-class speakers once again. “I absolutely loved the atmosphere and it’s been a great experience.” Annamaria Cordella, Sports Massage Therapist.

In-person learning has been especially missed during this pandemic. Therapy Expo 2021 meant that individuals could finally access hours of live content, engaging with speakers and associates for an enriched education experience. Delegates could choose from over 70+ CPD accredited interactive lectures and practical workshops across seven different theatres and two demo spaces.

“Excellent thought-provoking sessions. Given ideas to develop in my practice in the coming twelve months.” Iain Harris, Director, Iain Harris Physio Solutions.

Topics covered speciality areas including MSK, sports injuries, strength and conditioning, performance, rehabilitation, massage, spinal injuries, neurology, respiratory (including Long Covid), cardio, stroke, orthopaedic, elderly care, and women’s health. Some of the unmissable sessions included:
