An educational retreat designed to inspire change

This October, participate in an event that will spark ideas. Fuel growth. Build collaboration. And more than anything, ignite your future and the future of active aging.

Step away from the day-to-day at the Florida resort Gaylord Palms for this year's International Council on Active Aging Conference. Connect with your colleagues and reinvigorate yourself—mind, body and spirit—with a more holistic learning and networking experience.

From preconference workshops to special events to general and regular sessions, delve into an educational program developed with our industry's needs and goals in mind. Topics target the varied roles, settings, client functional levels, and challenges found in active aging. One seminar stream, for example, focuses on discovering the future of such key influencers as technology, marketing, community design, older female consumers, and more. Included are "Open Space" sessions that'll allow you and other attendees to drive the discussion, share your knowledge and innovate solutions.

At the ICAA Conference 2017, you'll join a conference community that learns with and from each other. You'll have more opportunities and locations for networking—from informal mixing at the resort coffee bar to the event's "brain dating" and welcoming Reception En Blanc. Plus you'll access an expo of products and services targeted to active aging, featuring exhibitors committed to your success with the older adult. Investigate solutions in technology, equipment, services, transportation, dining, leasing and financing. All in an environment focused on healthy, active aging.

Highlights • new formats for learning • more robust educational programs • greater sense of community • improved networking opportunities • targeted trade show • En Blanc reception

A platform to shape the industry

The ICAA Conference is your platform not only to focus on the future of the industry, but to engage in shaping it. Beyond what you'll gain by attending, there's what you'll be able to give.

Immerse yourself in an interactive design forum focused on products and services. By contributing real-world input in this Design Lab session, you'll help industry partners design effective products and services that address all functional levels and the future needs of your clients. Collaborate with colleagues to ensure our industry seizes opportunities and drives change. Share your knowledge and ideas to inspire others to reach new levels of understanding and improve quality of life for older adults. New milestones await.

Share in the excitement. Bring yourself. Bring your team. Enjoy an experience that reenergizes your passion and helps put emerging trends into action. Do more than glimpse the future of active aging. Help ignite it!
