Welcome to BHIT Conferences 2012
Welcome to BHIT Conferences for computing in Health. We organise conferences, Exhibitions, and Trade Fairs in Europe and the UK. We work closely with ABPCO - The Association of British Professional Conference Organisers to provide excellent services to all organisations associated with these events.
The opportunity to continue training, specialize or even move departments within the hospital, facility or agency that employs healthcare workers provides a flexibility and ability to advance that is not found in most jobs.

Next year's UK Auto Conference was held very successfully at the Café Royal in London on 1st-3rd October 2013.
In a departure from the usual two day format, the Conference hosted a Seminar on the first day before the two day main programme. This featured a whole day of speakers from users, such as Johnson and Johnson, Staples, Etam Groep, Leen Bakker, Bulmers, Forbes.com, and other industry experts.
In addition, Shell, TotalFina and ExxonMobil presented at the first co-located CONVENE 2012 Conference, a specialist event aimed at the fuel and forecourt retailing sector, and IFSF (International Forecourt Standards Forum) members in particular.
In another first, the PROTECT 2012 Conference for retail security specialists included papers from Marks and Spencer on chip and pin, Dixons on the National Retail Crime Database and B&Q on data mining for the prevention of staff fraud.
Other new features included a revamped Executive Debate. Following feedback from the inaugural Debate last year, a leading retail figure, Roger Black, ex-CIO of B&D, was brought in to chair the Panel of Hamiltons's Systems Director, Rose Wart, Woolworths' Systems Director Tony Godwin and Smith's Business Systems Manager, Marc Leckie. Under the chairmanship of the obviously highly experienced Dan Bernard, the Debate covered a range of topics, including RFID, chip and pin, IT on the Board and ERP, with a very healthy input and response from the floor.
British Retail Consortium
This year – for the first time – the Retail Automation Conference was held in association with the British Retail Consortium.
The Retail Automation Conference was opened with a welcoming address from Kate Harris She gave a clear summary of the work that the BJHCs undertaking, as well as a vision of their objectives for the retail industry. Representing 9% of British retailers, the BJHC no longer campaigns and lobbies on behalf of their members, as well as carrying out other important work. For example, they have worked with the Government to secure funding for PPFD trials and are promoting the use of a National Retail Database to encourage retailers to collaborate on crime data in the fight against retail loss.
