The Pharmacy Show is back for 2022 with, as always, the biggest names and brands across the industry. Let’s dive in and explore what makes the Pharmacy Show the unmissable event of pharmacy.
Why attend the Pharmacy Show?
The Pharmacy Show is the biggest gathering of pharmacists and industry professionals in the UK. The reason it’s so well attended is that no matter what you need, the Pharmacy Show has something for you.
In the market for a new Prescription Collection Point? PMR System? Dispensing Robot? Almost all the providers worth going with demonstrate their products at the Pharmacy Show. Try before you buy, get a feel for the customer service, and maybe grab a discount or few!
Supplier & Service Provider’s Pharmacy Show Discounts
Getting yourself to the Pharmacy Show if you’re in the market for new services and suppliers is never a bad idea. Suppliers want your attention and your business, and at the Pharmacy Show, this usually takes the form of promotional offers, giveaways and discounts.
Given the typically large outlay of investment into new pharmacy hardware or software, potential savings alone make the journey worthwhile.
Networking at the Pharmacy Show
It’s all about who you know. And visiting the NEC Arena for the Pharmacy Show this year puts you amongst thousands of fellow professionals. It’s a great place for discussing the future of pharmacy, best practise, and building relationships which can ultimately lead to new opportunities.
Not only can you speak to a massive range of industry suppliers and service providers, but once again you’ll find dedicated areas specifically for networking.
Impressive Line-up of Speakers
As always, the Pharmacy Show boasts a great array of professional speakers, who’ll entertain, inform and inspire you with their industry insights, completely free.

Accessing these talks is as simple as walking into the theatre at the times shown on the programme. Fill your entire day with talks, catch the occasional one…no matter what your plans, the Pharmacy Show is a great place for listening and learning.
The Pharmacy Show Academy
With a Pharmacy Show account, accessing the complete archive of talks and presentations is only a couple of clicks away.
Whilst it isn’t quite the same as seeing a talk in-person, it’s great if you missed a talk you wanted to attend.
Want to get into the vaccination game?
If you’re attending the Pharmacy Show anyway, the on-site Vaccination Training is a super-convenient way of expanding or refreshing your skills.
For £89+VAT, you get access to three courses, all CPD accredited and updated for 2022:
- Flu Vaccines
- Travel Vaccines
- COVID-19 Vaccines

Is it worth it if I went last year?
The rate of change nowadays mean that products, services, and even industry regulations can differ radically from 12 months ago.
As an example, over the past year, Pharmacy Mentor developed an entirely new Pharmacy Website with Independent Prescribing & Online Doctor modules. We’ve started offering new services and ways to finance bigger ticket items.
That’s just us. Now multiply that across the entire pharmacy industry. Missing out on new opportunities leaves you behind the curve and playing catch up with everyone else.
So, yes, the Pharmacy Show is always worth attending every year.
