AAL2 Business deployment seminar

AAL2 Business Solution Deployment Seminar – 29th of September 2016

Radisson Blu Hotel St. Jakob Strasse 55 9000 St. Gallen, Switzerland

As a side event to the AAL Forum, which takes place in Switzerland from September 26-28, AAL is also hosting an important Solution Deployment Seminar, which will be held in St Gallen the day after the closing ceremony.

All stakeholders involved in the ageing market will find the planned day of talks, discussion, interaction and networking extremely valuable. Continuing with the Forum’s main theme of Innovations Ready for Breakthrough, the spotlight will be focused on ensuring AAL products and services are developed to be ready for the market and, as importantly, that older people, their carers and others involved in solution deployment want, need and are prepared to pay for these solutions.

Co-hosted by HIM – Health Information Management, the seminar will offer insight into what key actors in the ageing market, including procurers and investors, are looking for. Sessions will also take place looking at what makes up the AAL market and the impact AAL is having on elderly care and independent living, as well as on how to develop innovative business models to ensure AAL products have even more impact in the future. Finally, opportunities will also be available for companies working with the AAL to pitch their products and ideas to experts and receive valuable feedback.

The Solution Deployment Seminar is an exciting opportunity to gain real insight into what market readiness for AAL solutions actually means from all angles as well as pick up valuable advice on how to best to develop solutions that are actually ready for that market.

The seminar is open to all those attending the Forum free of charge. Watch this space for further details of the venue.  Please register for the event here.
