Sponsorship & Exhibition Opportunities

The 2023 Annual NHS R&D Forum Conference (RDF23) is to be held from the 21st – 23th May 2023 at the Sage Gateshead Conference Centre.  It is expected that well over 500 people will attend RDF23 and this promises to build on the huge success of RDF18 and RDF19. The 2019 Annual NHS R&D Forum held at Hilton Brighton Metropole. Almost 600 people attended RDF19. The Sunday Evening included a Workshop and Networking Buffet which over 300 people attended.  RDF19 also saw over 60 speakers, 20 Exhibitors, 7 Sponsors as well as a very interactive Gala Dinner. The Gala Dinner was attended by almost 500 people and included Five Awards presented to the winners of Best Abstracts and Best Posters.  Unfortunately, due to COVID it was not possible to hold RDF2X, 21 and 22 and so we are pleased to announce that we will be returning to in-person events for RDF23.

The Event attracts a wide range of delegates from across the UK. Roles include NHS R&D Directors, R&D Managers, Quality Assurance Directors, Finance & Administration roles, Project Managers as well as Patient Group representatives. The Event also attracts representation from the NIHR, HRA, MHRA, DHSC as well as a wide range of associated groups and organisations.

There are several opportunities for your organisation to exhibit at or sponsor the event.
