About

Our Mission

Our mission is to enhance the delivery of public-facing services within the NHS and the UK Public sector.

We achieve this by providing high-value strategic conferences that foster collaboration and knowledge sharing among senior managers and leaders from across the country.

Through our conferences, we aim to facilitate meaningful connections, exchange of ideas and empower professionals to drive positive change in their respective fields.

Our Values

We understand that our success is driven by the talent and dedication of our staff.

We foster a supportive and inclusive culture that values teamwork, creativity, and continuous learning. We are proud to invest in the professional development of our employees, providing them with opportunities to enhance their skills and expand their knowledge.

We believe in recognising and celebrating individual achievements, and we actively promote a healthy work-life balance.

Industry Leading Events

Our events provoke debate and discussion through keynote presentations and networking sessions, discussing the latest initiatives and best practice.

Our conferences are designed to enable better collaboration; from the opening up initial conversations, holding one-to-one meetings, to the hosting of groupd discussions.

We aim to provide a industry leading platform to make tangible business connections and re-establish relationships with peers.

Together, we can build a stronger, more efficient, and people-centric public sector that meets the evolving needs of our society.

Convenzis Healthcare Event testimonials

Testimonials

Thank you once again for allowing us to exhibit and present directly in the afternoon to the MATs attending. I know it was a lovely day but weather aside it felt wonderful to be back face to face and your conference was so friendly and inviting. I could see the hard work everyone was doing to make it so successful

Department For Education

“the whole event was really well organised and the choice of speakers and the range of topics were of excellent quality.
As a supplier, it was great to gain insight to understand the issues and concerns when considering growing or merging MATs, where the priorities are focused and the key learnings for those CEOs who have gone through the journey.
I would recommend attending a future Convenzis conference or event, as the quality was first class.”

Education Buying

The National MAT Conference was a great first show for us and produced a number of quality lead opportunities.

Quality of the attendees/delegates was great. The Convenzis team were professional and approachable throughout, and special thanks to Daniel for helping us swap stand positions to incorporate the SMART IFP.

Conversations with the MAT delegates who attended our stand on the day were positive and it was good to understand where they were currently in their Digital transformation journey post-pandemic.

A really positive great show. Our partner, Elementary Technology Ltd, also concurred that the quality of the delegates that attended were the right people and those key decision-makers.

Aver

“We were impressed by the excellent session line-up and quality of the audience. The team at Convenzis are friendly and were always on hand to help in the run-up. We’re looking forward to the MAT Growth & Merger Conference in October.”

The Key

“The MAT Growth & Merger Conference was a well organised, high-quality event that we thoroughly enjoyed being involved at. The team were professional and friendly, always available to help with our requests. The speakers and audience seniority was excellent, we look forward to continuing to be a part of Convenzis events in the future!”
