Sectors such as elderly care have been hard hit by Covid and are reinventing their business models facing new workforce challenges and harnessing digital solutions.
Meanwhile the care sector is consolidating fast in Europe and operators are exploring new models which enable them to address the last 15 years of life. Psychiatry and other specialist care markets are opening up.
In Emerging Markets, from Chile to China, start ups are grasping the massive opportunities in homecare and nursing homes.

"Unique in the world at bringing together both investment side and operational sides globally"

“What is unique about the conference is the practical aspect of it. This means that you get to network with the right people because it's so compact and the right people come to this conference. In other conferences, the population is so huge that to walk up to someone and talk is not possible. In healthcare you need a specific element to connect and that is what HBI brings”
Romy de Groot, Karify, Netherlands
“It is important to come to this conference as it is very difficult for a small Norwegian company to reach out to the CEOs of big international companies. I can network with the CEOs here”
Ken Garner, Dignio, Sweden
"We work in a company that has grown a lot in the last ten years and I think it's a good moment to be here and to understand what is happening in the world. We are very happy to be here. We have managed a lot of contacts, operators, investors. It's very useful for us to be here"
Gustavo Fondrini, CEO, PalCare, Argentina
"The conference is a unique opportunity to meet people globally. We are involved in health care and my particular interest is in emerging markets so this is a way to build new relationships, learn new things and trends in the business"
