Future Surgery 2021

9th - 10th November 2021, ExCel London

ABHI is partnering with the Royal College of Surgeons of England to deliver a dedicated ABHI Pavilion at Future Surgery 2021.  

Future Surgery is the UK's flagship surgical show, and presents a prime opportunity to showcase the latest HealthTech innovations to leading clinicians, procurement professionals and senior healthcare decision makers. Running from 9-10 November at ExCel London, the show is set to welcome buyers responsible for more than £600m of annual NHS surgical spend, and across the two days, there will be free education sessions, networking opportunities, lead generation and industry insight for both physical and virtual visitors.

ABHI will be delivering ‘The Operating Theatre of The Future’, which will be the headline delegate feature of the event, and will be used by leading surgeons to demonstrate the latest pioneering surgical techniques. 

The ABHI Pavilion has space for nine exhibitors, and will be available to companies to book on a first come, first serve basis. Exhibiting with ABHI at Future Surgery 2021 includes: 

  • A high quality, branded stand design
  • Your equipment for use in ‘The Operating Theatre of The Future’
  • Your advertisement in the online and digital event guide
  • Two week advance access to the meeting platform
  • Dedicated marketing support to target overseas buyers/surgeons
  • Expert support from ABHI to ensure maximum visibility for you in the run-up to, and during the show.

Overseas delegates will be able to access both the educational content and network with suppliers via the virtual events platform, and last year, the event welcomed over 3,500 clinician registrations from 90 countries. The 2021 show is expected to grow even more, and to further demonstrate the UK's significant healthcare credentials, our partnership with the Royal College of Surgeons of England will see the College promote the recently launched virtual UK Healthcare Pavilion to delegates in the run-up to the event.

Support for the event will also be provided by the surgical Royal Colleges of Edinburgh, Glasgow & Ireland, The Association of Surgeons in Training and via the FSSA the speciality surgical associations plus the AfPP, CODP, RCN and numerous other sector associations.
