The Awards Ceremony 2021
After much deliberation and taking accont of people’s views we have taken the decision to ease the Awards lunch and ceremony to a date in early October. The new date is Friday October 8.
We have also taken the decision to move the occasion out of central London – partly because the original venue was short on space if any Covid restrictions needed to remain in place, partly because resistance to travel into the heart of the capital, and partly because so many of those already attending are travelling from places north of the M4 corridor.
As a result, plans are taking shape for an Awards lunch and ceremony on October 8 in the Britannia Suite at the National Conference Centre, adjacent to the National Motorcycle Museum, Coventry Road, Bickenhill, Soluhull, B92 0EJ. Detailed plans are being worked on at the moment and will be uploaded to this page as soon as they are confirmed. What we can confirm is that the new venue is centrally located near road, rail and air transport hubs and that we will be able to offer all those attending a safer, more relaxed, yet value-enriched occasion.
We are bearing in mind that there may still be Coronavirus restrictions in place in October and are making contingency plans for an online presentation, just in case. But we are highly confident of running a physical event on October 8 at the National Conference Centre and would urge prompt booking if you would like to be close to the action. Over 250 people have already booked to attend and this number increases every day or two. If, in the final analysis, we are forced to hold an online presentation, then we will hold on to a viewing fee and refund any surplus without hesitation. Please click the ATTEND THE AWARDS button on any page of the website to place your booking.
Because of the change of date we are waiting to hear whether the silver-voiced, ever-amiable Alan Dedicoat will be available to host the Awards presentation. His attendance or that of another presenter will be confirmed as soon as possible.

On September 11, the presentation of the Winners, High Commendations and Finalists of the Care Home Awards streamed via the Internet. The Covid-19 pandemic may have amended our plans, but the celebration took place – though in a different way. The Awards presentation was hosted by Alan Dedicoat.
The Awards Ceremony 2019
The Care Home Awards returned to the Platinum Suite at ExCeL London on Thursday June 27, 2019 for another delightful, lunchtime celebration of innovation and excellence in the care home sector. It was a sellout occasion, hosted impeccably by Alan Dedicoat, and the levels of enjoyment and appreciation of the winning Finalists were high.
Huge thanks to all the Finalists. Many congratulations to the Winners and the High Commendations. Praise is due to all the High Commendations and Category and Gold Winners and thanks must go to all who helped make the day a great success, including the supportive Sponsors and Media Partner, Care Home Management. Finally, grateful thanks to CloserStill and the Health plus Care Show team who laid on a most enjoyable, fizzy, after show “tea” party in the exhibition itself.
