Thanks for Visiting us at COT 2015 Conference and Exhibition

The Non-Slip team would like to thank everyone who came to visit us at the Cot 2015 Conference and Exhibition (which ran from 30th June-2nd July).

We had a great show- despite the heatwave- in the wonderfully air-conditioned Brighton centre, on Brighton’s lively sea front.

We gave away stacks of goodie bags with our ‘Keep Calm I’m an Occupational Therapist’ Dycem coaster samples- which are always a huge hit with the OT’s. We also spread the word, far and wide, about Dycem Non-Slip’s therapeutic applications.

We would like to thank our resident expert, Jen Cave-Ayland, for helping us out during the exhibition. She is an Occupational Therapist and was only too happy to help with any OT-related questions posed to us from the delegates.

Once again, we ran our ‘How do You Use Dycem?’ competition, where we collected responses from attendees on their best reviews and new uses for Dycem.

Some of the answers included, using Dycem to hold arms still during Mirror Box Therapy exercises and using Dycem reel material for scar tissue massage.

Watch this space to find out who won, as we’ll be announcing the winner soon.

We look forward to seeing you at COT 2016, which will be held in Harrogate.

We hope to see you there!

And if you are an Occupational Therapist who attended COT 2015, we’d love to hear your thoughts on how the show went for you. Please leave us a comment below.

College of Occupational Therapists Exhibition 2015

The College of Occupational Therapists will be holding their 39th annual conference and exhibition 30th June -2nd July, in the Brighton Centre on Brighton’s famous promenade.

The Dycem Non-Slip team are looking forward to exhibiting at this year’s event for the third year running.

We see it as a golden opportunity to meet with thought leaders from the world of occupational therapy; an extremely varied and ever-evolving profession.

The Conference programme is full of motivating speakers and topics to improve clinical practice.  Dycem looks forward to hearing delegate’s inspiring stories about how the non-slip products improve their clients’ lives.

We’ll be setting-up at stand number 1 in the main exhibition hall, spreading awareness of the Dycem Non-Slip range and selling our products from the stand.  Make sure you keep an eye-out for some exclusive exhibition offers!

‘Keep Calm I’m an Occupational Therapist’ Coasters

In previous years, our ‘Keep Calm I’m an Occupational Therapist’ coasters have been a huge success with OT’s. We’ll make sure we bring plenty of these to give away this year, as well as goodie bags containing, brochures, pens and discount codes for an extra 10% off the Dycem web store!

Occupational Therapist, Jen Cave-Ayland will also be joining us. She will be on-hand to demonstrate the versatility of Dycem Non-Slip and offer advice on using it as a tool for therapy.

Be sure to come and visit if you are attending and tell us how you use Dycem for a chance to win a special prize in a competition we will be running during the show.

Also, if you would like to get in touch with us to set up a meeting during the exhibition, contact Eva Paraskevaides on 0117 9548 701 or email nonslip(at)dycem.com.

We look forward to seeing you there!

COT Annual Conference 2013


It was Dycem’s first time visiting the College of Occupational Therapists Annual Conference this year, and we had a great time.

Occupational Therapist Jen describes our experience –

I was not disappointed by the 37th Annual COT Conference in Glasgow.  I had forgotten that there was such an amazing buzz about the place; so many inspiring people willing to share and learn. There were those just starting their Occupational Therapy journeys and those who could be classed as OT royalty!

The Dycem stand was continually busy throughout the three days and we were left slightly hoarse from chatting to loads of great people.  The word spread quickly about our ‘Keep Calm’ coasters and many people were picking up extras for their colleagues who couldn’t make it.

Once again our visitors didn’t disappoint, with suggestions of how to use Dycem and some fantastic ideas for new products.

Dycem is already looking forward to attending the 38th Annual COT Conference in Brighton. See you there!
