Manchester Fertility Show

Fertility Road are excited to be continuing our long standing relationship with the Fertility Show.  Not only are we exhibiting at the Manchester Fertility Show but you will also be able to pick up a copy of the March/April issue of our magazine.

Whether you are just thinking about starting a family or have been trying for a while, come to The Fertility Show Manchester for advice, information and support to help you on your journey. Don’t miss our extensive fertility seminar programme providing access to the best minds in fertility, as well as our wide range of exhibitors so you can explore the best treatment options for you and get some of your questions answered.

In the UK, 1 in 6 couples struggle with fertility and the need for more information and support has never been more evident. Now, to give even more people access to expert advice on fertility, the UK’s most popular event, The Fertility Show, will travel north to Manchester for the first time on 25th – 26th March 2017.

The renowned London Show, celebrated its eighth year in November 2016 – and almost 3,000 visitors came through the doors. There was a lively, informative, yet supportive atmosphere at the Show, with visitors busily scheduling in expert talks across the main seminar stages, as well as chatting to the exhibitors on the Show floor.

And, following feedback from visitors, speakers and exhibitors, there is certainly demand for a second show that is more centrally located in the UK, to ensure as many people as possible can access impartial and informed advice on fertility.

SO MANCHESTER, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

Manchester’s Central Convention Complex will host the two-day event, with its unique educational focus and unrivalled access to seminars and Q&A’s with the best minds in the fertility world.

Tickets for the first fertility event in Manchester are on sale and the Fertility Show, which is hosted in association with Fertility Network UK, looks forward to welcoming thousands of prospective parents. With a range of exhibitors including doctors, clinicians and fertility experts appearing at the event it will give visitors the opportunity to get information one-to-one and under one roof.

The two-day seminar programme will feature some of UK ’s leading fertility experts such as Professor Charles Kingsland, Lead Consultant, Hewitt Fertility Centre, Liverpool, the UK’s largest provider of NHS funded treatment, Professor Adam Balen Consultant in Reproductive Medicine at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, leading expert in nutritional health for women, Dr Marylin Glenville PhD and Zita West, Zita West Clinic.

The Show is for everyone wanting to conceive. Whether you’re considering IVF, want to find out about egg and sperm donation, thinking about other alternatives such as surrogacy and adoption, or simply want to know how to boost your fertility, then this event is for you.

Come join us at Manchester to put your fertility questions centre stage!

Fertility Show Manchester

SUPPORTING PEOPLE THROUGH THE FERTILITY JOURNEY

Since the very first event, eight years ago, The Fertility Show has formed a close partnership with the national charity for everyone who has experienced fertility problems, Fertility Network UK. The team of experts and advisors from the charity will be on hand again at Manchester to offer advice and support to all those people with questions or concerns about fertility. Fertility Network UK runs an information line on 01424 732 361 which offers free and impartial support for anyone affected by fertility issues.

FERTILITY – A HOT TOPIC IN THE NEWS

Over the past few months, fertility has literally been front page news. Alex Jones, presenter of the One Show, in particular, led the way in talking publicly about the need for women to be more aware of and educated about their fertility and presented a BBC One documentary on the topic. Although Alex revealed fears that she would not be able to conceive, joyfully, she announced in September that she was expecting her first child.

National media attention has also fallen on a number of interviews revealing the pain of miscarriage from high profile and well-respected women; Nicola Sturgeon, Scotland’s First Minister and BBC Coast presenter, Tessa Dunlop. The very fact that these personal insights are so different reflects the reality of fertility for so many women in the UK.

It is also now commonplace to see fertility topics and treatments appear as features in the national news. As a result, there has been a widespread discussion in the media around topics such as fertility costs and so-called add-ons, as well as regular reporting of published scientific research on the benefits of new, ground-breaking fertility treatments.

While it is good to have up-to-date information on fertility reported in the news, it can also be confusing or worrying – especially for people who are considering seeking advice, or are actually undergoing fertility treatment. Sometimes, media reports raise more questions than answers!

At The Fertility Show, we understand that people want to better understand the latest fertility news and to be able to put these issues into the context of their own situation. Our seminar programme and Q&A Stage help to tackle fertility issues “head on” via the diverse range of topics covered, with experts invited to speak honestly and independently on these issues. Then, people can make their own informed judgement on what’s right for them and where to seek further advice and support.

Just as a “snapshot”, three topical issues that will be covered in Manchester are:

  • How to keep costs down – do we really need those add-ons?: covering items such as pre- implantation genetic screening, time-lapse photography, immunology and endometrial scratch, the seminar advises on how best to save money to get the right treatment for you.
  • Fertility treatment on the NHS: it’s a postcode lottery and Government funding constraints is making this worse. So, it is the people who best understand how the NHS works, its criteria and the information they need, who will fare best. The seminar will offer some helpful tips on how to fast track your fertility treatment on the NHS.
  • Innovations in embryo selection, do they really make a difference?: Newspapers are full of headlines about developments in genetic screening and time-lapse imaging that allow clinics to select the embryo for transfer most likely to succeed in an IVF cycle. But are these reports reliable and should patients be pinning their hopes (and cash) on such techniques?

Tickets for the Fertility Show will be on sale in January 2017. For further information please visit fertilityshow.co.uk/manchester Tickets cost £10 for each day, or £16 for a weekend ticket in advance. Seminars can be booked for just £3 a session.

Supporting people through the fertility journey

Finding trustworthy advice on the issue of fertility is crucial for visitors and The Fertility Show provides a safe and discreet environment where people can get the information and advice they need – all in one place. While some people are happy to speak openly about their fertility experiences, others are naturally more apprehensive. So, for anyone who needs “time out” when they’re at the Show, there are plenty of pop up seating areas and cafes, as well as Fertility Network’s quiet room. Many of the seminars and sessions at the Q&A stage also deal with the emotional aspects of fertility issues which many visitors can relate to. Visitors can seek advice and support from fertility counsellors, former fertility patients and representatives from the industry’s independent organisations such as the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Association (HFEA), the British Fertility Society (BFS) and the British Infertility Counselling Network (BICA).

The Fertility Show has formed a close partnership with Fertility Network UK, the national charity for everyone who has experienced fertility problems. Aileen Feeney, Chief Executive of Fertility Network UK, says:

“The Fertility Shows provides unparalleled access to the world’s leading fertility experts from across the UK and abroad. Fertility Network UK are proud to be part of the show. We are the only UK-wide charity that provides free and impartial advice to people wherever they are on their fertility journey. We hope you come and visit us on our stand (C10) where you can ask us questions and find out about the practical and emotional support we provide.”
