Preliminary Programme launched

The Preliminary Programme for the 10th European Healthcare Design Congress, Exhibition & Awards has been launched.


Registration is also open – download the programme here and begin to plan out your two days.


This year’s plenary theme is ‘Natural Intelligence: Creating self-learning health systems’. The theme recognises that faced with the challenges of implementing climate-smart healthcare systems, delivering new service and asset models that strengthen resilience, and creating humanistic environments that promote wellbeing, a key question to ask ourselves is: how do we create self-learning health systems? undefined - undefined


Building on the success of the past two years, the 2024 Congress will again be held as both an in-person and virtual event. Returning to the Royal College of Physicians, London, European Healthcare Design 2024 features two days of insightful, provocative and entertaining talks, workshops and panel discussions, with study tours to some of the UK’s most innovative healthcare facilities on the third day.


Days one and two will open with keynote plenary sessions, before splitting into four streams. Day one will close with a high-level debate exploring AI in healthcare. And the final session of day two will be devoted to a ceremony to present the EHD 2024 Awards, supported by lead sponsor IHP.


Sessions will be streamed virtually for delegates unable to attend in person via our dedicated event platform, while our mobile event app will offer enhanced networking opportunities and provide key information about everything going on during the Congress.


With more than 200 speakers, keynote talks, panel discussions, workshops, study tours, video + poster presentations, an exhibition of design and technology solutions, a Welcome Reception, a Garden Party, and an interactive Art Room, European Healthcare Design 2024 is the world’s leading forum for exchange of research findings, best practice and policy thinking on the design of health systems, services, and infrastructure. Congress delegates will enjoy unique professional development and networking experiences with colleagues in the healthcare design field from all over the world. 


Our valued and loyal partners and sponsors have once again provided us with wonderful support, and with substantial investment in healthcare infrastructure planned by many countries in coming years, demand for tickets is expected to be stronger than ever.
