How will we care for our elderly in the future? More than 200 care workers from the Omring, Zorgbalans and De Zorgcirkel care homes found answers to this question at the Kwalifestival in autumn 2019. We designed the programme and provided the facilities, bumpers and technology for this inspiring event, which featured speakers, videos, workshops and an open setting conducive to networking.
They say location is everything, and the HAL25 venue in Alkmaar, which we suggested as the event venue, contributed greatly to the mood and experience of the event. The programme included a welcome speech followed by a lunch, and three 45-minute sessions in which guests could attend workshops and visit a variety of stands. In addition, a number of plenary speakers had been invited. On account of the noise, the workshops were held in domes set up especially for the occasion.
Instead of making attendees passively attend a few workshops in a traditional auditorium, we gave them access to an informal, fun and relaxed setting, which they found extremely welcoming and comfortable and which was perfect for sharing knowledge and ideas.
