Workplace Wellbeing Show 2021

Workplace Wellbeing Show 2021 consists of a high level virtual conference, a virtual exhibition and an in-person exhibition, taking place throughout June & July. Mind continues to be the event’s official charity partner.

The virtual conference: Workplace Wellbeing Conference 2021

The Workplace Wellbeing Conference takes place online from 1st – 3rd June. It will feature in-depth content for anyone involved in leading wellbeing initiatives within their organisation, and will also guide anyone looking to support their own wellbeing or the wellbeing of the people they work.

The conference will bring together 40 expert speakers from a wide range of backgrounds. Their mix of professional achievements, lived experience and inspirational stories will help you deliver effective wellbeing initiatives and will help you support colleagues, and perhaps yourself. You can expect some healthy debate on the subject, too, as our virtual event platform will enable a truly interactive experience for delegates and speakers alike.

The virtual exhibition: Connect 2021

Connect 2021, taking place online from 1-30 June, is your opportunity to come together with like-minded professionals to discuss wellbeing in the workplace. The month-long event will enable you to connect with fellow wellbeing leaders, find solutions to workplace wellbeing challenges and access thought-leadership content.

Speaking about Workplace Wellbeing Show’s virtual presence, Group Director Chris Edwards said: “While 2020 had its challenges for in-person events, Safety & Health Expo and Workplace Wellbeing Show were able to innovate and bring the industry together remotely via online platforms and we are looking to further build on that success in 2021.”
