POSTPONED – Northern Ireland Connected Health Ecosystem Gathering

26th March 2020 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm


As you will have heard over recent weeks there are potential risks associated with large scale events given the growing numbers affected by both strains of the coronavirus. Added to this, following the collapse of Flybe airlines, flight connections to and from Belfast have become significantly affected.

As a result, and with much regret, we have decided to postpone this Ecosystem Gathering.

We will, however, be looking to host this event in the near future as soon as there is more certainty with both issues. We will contact everyone that has registered when we can confirm a new date for the gathering.

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and hope you understand the reasons behind the decision.


As we move closer to the Northern Ireland Connected Health Ecosystem Gathering, we are delighted to share details of the latest confirmed speakers and how to register for free!
