Why attend

Innovation for active ageing 
Innovations designed to help make life easier for people as they get older are at the heart of the AAL Forum, and it is among the largest events in Europe to see the latest developments in this exciting field of research. The exhibition floor and poster sessions, which take place throughout the course of the forum, are the perfect places to look at technology first-hand and meet the people who created it.

The forum provides an excellent opportunity to network and gives participants a great platform to exchange experiences and ideas. The matchmaking platform brings together suitable potential business partners to talk about their work and strike up real collaborations, and the interactive nature of the sessions and workshops ensures that delegates get talking with each other.

Business strategy
As the silver economy emerges and people realise the potential of this growing market, those involved are learning fast about what makes the cut and what doesn’t. You may have a great idea, but without the right business model and strategy then it is likely to stay as just that: an idea. The AAL Forum hosts numerous interactive workshops and sessions that help delegates take their business to the next level.

Whether you are someone with a great idea looking to find financial support, or if you are an investor looking to help turn someone’s great idea into a reality, the AAL Forum is the perfect place to meet people from all over Europe who are looking to move ahead with their business ideas.

Setting the agenda
The AAL Programme has increasing influence on European policy in regard to meeting the challenges and seizing the opportunities afforded by our ageing population. Through high-level speakers and direct interaction with policymakers, the forum gives you the opportunity to have your say.
