After 3 years, the international Health Valley Event on 15, 16 and 17 March in Nijmegen is finally back on location at Pathé and Van der Valk. The healthcare innovation network of the East Netherlands organizes the largest healthcare innovation conference in the Netherlands every year, to connect the more than 1,200 participants local and abroad. In 2019, Health Valley Netherlands last organized an on-site edition where visitors could meet each other. In March 2020, the event was cancelled last minute and in 2021, participants could only participate in the event online.

Chris Doomernik, Director of Health Valley: “We’re extremely happy to finally be able to organize the event on location again. Now our visitors can connect face-to-face with entrepreneurs and people who are active in healthcare organizations, knowledge institutions and governments. This is an important step towards accelerating innovation through the use of technology and thus making tomorrow’s health and care possible, today.”

Plenty of tickets

Given the current easing of covid-measures (the event is a so-called flow-through location), there are no restrictive measures regarding the number of visitors. There are also no restrictions such as testing for entry. Of course, the health of visitors is paramount and Health Valley recommends following the advice: wear a mask if desired, wash your hands regularly, test before attending the event and stay home in case of symptoms. Interested parties who cannot or do not want to attend a live on location event can use an online ticket.

The Health Valley Event

The Health Valley Event is the largest healthcare innovation conference in the Netherlands. Every year visitors the Netherlands and abroad from healthcare, business, research, education and government come together to work on the health and care of tomorrow. At the event, the exchange of knowledge, but also gaining inspiration and especially matchmaking is central. For this edition there is a special collaboration with the European (Active & Assisted Living) AAL program and there will also be extra attention for healthy aging. More information:
