2. Wear Comfortable Shoes

Step counter at the ready? You’ll definitely get your 10,000 steps at CHS Birmingham! The show floor will be filled with exhibitors, the education programme stage, a cocktail bar, lounge areas and more. Wear some comfortable shoes so your feet aren’t aching at the end of a busy day walking around!

3. Balance your time between visiting exhibitors, attending educational and networking sessions

As we mentioned before, there is so much to see and do at CHS Birmingham. Keep an eye on the time, so you don’t get caught up all day doing one activity and missing out on all of the others! Balance your time between speaking to venues, learning everything you can from our speakers and catching up with your fellow industry profs. 

Check out our programme and exhibitor listing before you arrive in Birmingham to help you plan your day. 

Finally, if you have booked exhibitor appointments in the CHS Birmingham diary system, why not set a reminder in your phone 5 minutes before the scheduled appointment? Our exhibitors have been informed of all appointment bookings and will be ready and waiting to meet you on their stand! 

4. Download the Event App

We recommend downloading the CHS Birmingham App to get instant access to everything you need to make the most of your time at CHS Birmingham 2022. Learn about our amazing exhibitors and insightful speakers, view the show programme, build your personal diary and network with fellow attendees. 

Simply scan the QR code for your device to download the ‘EventReference App‘. Once installed enter the code: CHS22 and away you go!

5. Plan to meet your existing connections

While you will be meeting so many new people at CHS Birmingham and building new professional connections, it’s also a great chance to catch up with your existing connections. Before the show, reach out to any current connections you have by email or on social media, and schedule a time to catch up at the show. It’s important to keep nurturing your current relationships – you never know, they can turn into new business for you too! Don’t forget to use the hashtag #CHSRocks
