Warwick Davis at Naidex 45

For its 45th anniversary, Naidex brought together an unbelievable line-up of speakers, exhibitors, visitors and world-exclusive solutions, forming THE ultimate hub of innovation for the independent living & healthcare sectors.

Just before 10am on the 26th March, a massive crowd was waiting in front of the entrance of Halls 6 and 7 at Birmingham’s NEC. Those waiting were there for something special, something they had waited all year to see. And as the doors opened, a feeling of exhilaration resounded amongst the crowd: Naidex had just opened its doors for the 45th year.
