The Alzheimer’s Show, the first UK exhibition and conference set up specifically to provide information and solutions to people living with or caring for someone with dementia, took place in London on 19th and 20th April 2013.

Nearly 1,800 people attended over the two days, with 65% of these visitors either having dementia or caring for a family member or friend who has the condition. For many it was an opportunity to listen, share and feel part of a community there to help. Following extremely positive feedback from our exhibitors, excellent speakers, care professionals and family carers, The Alzheimer’s Show will return next Spring in a larger London venue.


“I was delighted to attend the Alzheimer’s Show on Saturday 20 April. I was really impressed with the interest from the attendees and the activities I saw. I wish the Show all the best for future events.”

Professor Alistair Burns, National Clinical Director for Dementia

“The Alzheimer’s Show was a really first-rate event that had an excellent mixture of attendees that included people with dementia, their family and carers and the professionals who support them. There truly was something for everyone at this event.”

Professor Martin Green OBE, Chief Executive of ECCA

“I was delighted to speak at the launch of the inaugural Alzheimer’s Show, an important event attracting thousands of people living with dementia, their loved ones and carers and a huge professional audience. The great success of this first year reveals that The Alzheimer’s Show is necessary and timely. Alzheimer’s Research UK looks forward to an even bigger, better event in 2014 delivering more news, advice and support to empower people living with dementia across the UK.”
