The 8th International Ageing Asia Innovation Forum (AAIF) in Singapore gathered 810 attendees across 19 countries to exchange insights and identify the opportunities driven by Asia Pacific’s US$3.3 trillion booming silver economy.
Themed ‘Future of Integrated Care: Housing, Health & Communities’, AAIF2017 showcased 50 international and local experts in health and elderly care and seniors living to share on their perspectives on the latest innovations and best practice models. We were privileged to have H.E. Scott Wightman, British High Commissioner to Singapore and H.E. Paula Parviainen, Ambassador to the Embassy of Finland in Singapore opened the forum on 25 April.
In addition, over 30 exhibitors across Australia, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong SAR, Indonesia, Japan, Singapore and The United Kingdom featured their latest product innovations and service offerings at the exhibition showcase, held alongside the 8th International Ageing Asia Innovation Forum 2017. For the first time, AAIF2017 has two country pavilions – Finland and the United Kingdom showcasing their expertise in eldercare research and innovation.
Some key highlights from 8th International Ageing Asia Innovation Forum 2017 included the Ageing Asia Future of Eldercare Operations Seminar that ran alongside the forum, brought managers and care teams in healthcare and eldercare to access global programmes, innovation and strategies that can help to increase productivity, improve capabilities and quality of care. This year, the seminar welcomed over 200 attendees. As part of Ageing Asia’s give back to the industry, Ageing Asia extended to all Singapore Intermediate and Long Term Care (ILTC) service providers complimentary tickets to the Seminar.
